I don’t know if I’m naturally an early riser or I’ve been preconditioned by my dad. Receiving phone calls at 5am with news of incredible fish, the best whatever it might be that day, isn’t news that can wait.
This makes sense now, as seafood is at the heart of Seafood Pub Company, but these phone calls have happened for as long as I can remember. And if not a phone call, it’s pictures of yet another “best I’ve ever seen” fish.
At university, my friends understandably thought this was odd, but I didn’t. I loved it and still do. Dad’s been in the fish game for 45 years and has more energy and passion for the product than anyone. Our morning chats, talking about the price of fish and knowing that what’s on the way to the pubs will put big smiles on staff and customers’ faces, are one of my favourite parts of the day.
