A small place, a shop really, with an area set aside with seats where you can watch a 7/8 minute video about the history and smoking processes used. We arrived and although they were expecting a large tour group the staff were more than happy...More

Excellent service here and “Tony” gave us a great warm welcome as we browsed about and watched the video on how they prepare the world famous Smoked Salmon. Well worth the visit and will call again.

Fun, quick and educational. The smoked salmon is yummy! There is a quick video explaining the process, then there is a tasting of the different types of smoked salmon.
