The Hamper House’s speciality is the shellfish range, which vary in size and selection of delectable produce included. You can select from a light and delicious ‘Lobster Delight’ for a surprise brunch, lunch or supper for two to share; to the gourmet feast ‘Deluxe Delight’– a real shellfish banquet, with which you could also order an extra bottle of champagne and flutes, to entertain guests and share your delight.

The fresh shellfish is sourced locally from a reputable and renowned business that specialises in the finest oysters, crab and lobsters. The fresh crabs and lobsters are skillfully prepared and dressed, reaching you in chilled, prime condition - ready to eat.
