Our Story

Elseafood is run by husband and wife Martin and Charlotte of Davies Catering Cornwall.

We started out at a small food and drink festival in 2013. Find us at local food & drink and music festivals in Cornwall. In the summer months of 2020 and 2021 we rented the kitchen at The Boathouse on Newquay harbour. 'Elseafood', specialises in an alternative to generic fast food; healthy, restaurant standard seafood. Dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order.

We have recently opened our own premises on Lemon Quay in Truro. Follow us on our socials to keep up to date with this!



Martin Davies

Martin Davies has been a chef for 17 years, had experience in rosette restaurants in Cornwall, gained a Gold Chef’s Award and appeared on several TV programmes in recent years.

Martin is a passionate chef who loves the opportunity to be creative in the preparation and presentation of food. Martin began his chef career in popular high -end restaurants in Cornwall: 'Indaba', 'The Rose in Vale' 'The Scarlet Hotel' and 'Gaudis'.

Today he aims to make high quality food an option to all through the food available on the Elseafood menu.


After spending years working and learning in Cornwall's hotels and restaurants, we wanted a different working pattern to fit in around family life. 


We noticed that there weren't enough street food vendors selling fresh seafood (only the odd frozen fish & chips offering). We named our stall after our daughter Elsie, along with the concept of seafood and began trading as Elseafood at a food and drink festival in 2013. 

Today our ethos remains the same. We cook fresh, restaurant standard seafood fast. We select all our ingredients locally to create our innovative menus, from the seafood to the Cornish Sea Salt and ales used in our batter.   


We proudly support the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide and select sustainable seafood for our menus.  Items on the menu include the crispiest salt & pepper squid, freshest fish and chips, moules mariniere and the popular surf and turf.
