In a simple trailer on Kent’s starkly beautiful Dungeness beach, Kelly Smith is serving up some of the southeast’s freshest seafood, cooked right where it’s landed by her longstanding fishing family’s boats. Rachel Phipps paid a visit and captured this photo diary.
The Snack Shack is usually open Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm in front of Dungeness Fish Hut on Dungeness Road – but check their opening times and specials on Twitter (@DungenessFishut) and Facebook to be on the safe side, especially as we head into winter. The Dungeness Fish Hut sells the day’s catch. It opens once the boats are back from sea. Call 07516 913061 for opening times. Join their email club for daily catch reports by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
