Testimonials

 

What really sets Matthew Stevens apart from other fish merchants is the fact that he will always go that extra mile for his customers. As well as supplying our restaurants, we’ve worked with him on many outside catering jobs. The attention to detail, top class produce, reliable delivery and a really nice team of people make it a pleasure to work with this company.

Matthew engages our apprentices every year. Personally, he takes time to share his expert knowledge through sourcing trips and work placements, and actively supports our graduation events and farmers markets. We demand the best and we get the best from Matthew and his team.

Tate works hard to use regional suppliers wherever possible and is proud to support the economy local to Tate St Ives.

We’ve been working with Matthew and his team for some time now and cannot fault their attention to detail, in-depth knowledge, reliability and the freshness of their fish. Caught in British waters, the fish that they supply comes from sustainable sources, which is important to us. We’re happy to count them among our suppliers throughout our group of restaurants.

Matthew Stevens has been delivering fish to Le Cafe Anglais now for four years and there really is no-one else who is more in touch with their fishermen. Their knowledge of seasonal fish, availability and traceability is essential for us which enables us to inform our customers on a daily basis. Above all they constantly deliver the freshest fish from the Cornish coast.

Matthew Stevens is more than a supplier to us – we consider them a mutual partnership. Without his team tirelessly finding top quality produce for us and fulfilling our requests, life in the kitchen would be a lot tougher! Matthew’s vision of improving quality standards is extraordinary and commendable. We would not be the restaurant we are without him.
