Ask anyone where to find the best kippers in the country and they’ll likely say L Robson & Sons. Head to Craster Harbour where you’ll be greeted by a salty breeze mingled with the tang of the traditional smokery. The fish are oak-smoked in the original smokehouses, producing traditional kippers worthy of their far-reaching reputation. Serve simply – grilled and with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Delicious.
