The Seafood Pub Company
The Seafood Pub Company was founded by Joycelyn Neve in 2010, with a vision to deliver the best quality ingredients but in a relaxed and accessible way. Part of the Neve family with roots in the fishing industry going back generations. Joycelyn’s father Chris Neve uses his unrivalled experience to source the finest quality produce from sea and shore.
Behind the scenes is Executive Chef Antony Shirley who has over 18 years experience of producing quality creative dishes from the very best produce. Outstanding surroundings are delivered by Executive Chairman Andrew McLean who takes care of the developments, his wealth of experience gives all the venues their individual looks and wow factor.
A passionate and committed team throughout means the Seafood Pub company offers a unique dining experience at venues across the North West.
he Neves come from a long line of sea dogs who have fished the North Sea and Irish Sea for generations – since they first sailed out in a Grimsby back in 1840. Forty years later the family moved across to Fleetwood where Joycelyn Neve’s great grandfather became one of the top skippers and his trawler Chlotilde was the first to be requisitioned as a World War One minesweeper.
