Welcome to The Dukes Seafood. 

We are a family run business, opened in 2017, dedicated to providing delicious seafood, wonderful sweet products and excellent freshly brewed coffees, hot , cold and alcoholic beverages along the seafront of Mersea Island. 

Since opening in July 2017, The Dukes Seafood have steadily expanded, and now offer a huge range of seafood alongside many hot and cold drinks, alcoholic beverages,  icecreams, fresh and local cakes and sweet products, and of course local Mersea oysters. We have also begun a delivery service on Friday and Saturdays. 

David and Katie, both born and bred locally on the island, have a passion for seafood, and have also had the opportunity to train at Billingsgate Seafood School. In his earlier years, David was a fisherman and still dabbles his hand in now and then. At some times of the year, you may even be able to see his Smack (originally an oyster dredging boat) moored up by the seating area at the Dukes! Katie, who manages the day to day business at the Dukes, has come in to the industry keen and ready to provide superb quality and service. 

We are pleased to say that our staff hold just as much enthusiasm to ensuring high standards.  

Providing both takeaway pots of shellfish, as well as varied platters and baguettes, The Dukes Seafood really does give you an authentic taste of Mersea.  Situated on Coast Road, with outside tables looking over the estuary, our location is
