Abshelloutely Crabulous

At London Shell Co. we pride ourselves with having some of the freshest fish available in London. The large majority of our fish comes from Kernowsashimi & Wild Harbour. They represent a network of Cornish day boat fishermen.

The Grand Duchess offers an a la carte menu with a nod to British classics.  The drinks offering has been chosen to suit this and changes frequently.
