Built around the hull of the Kingfisher, an original 1940's wooden trawler from the local fleet, this is the flagship precinct of the Wharf and specialises in fresh fish and live lobsters, local and imported seafood.
Available direct to the public the smokery faithfully puffs away like in the olden days producing smoked fish and other deli items. In fact its recipe for Oak-Smoked Snoek has been handed down from one generation of Dormans to the next since the ninteenth century, and the only other place it is sold is Cape Town Airport domestic departures. Read the story on its box to ensure you have the genuine product.
Built into the hull of the Kingfisher, a discerning range of estate wine, beer and liqueurs is offered. A must is the Wharf's own wine in a fish-shaped bottle, a truly wonderful souvenir or gift. Due to its unique appeal the Locker was the first South African outlet to be licenced for seven-day-a-week trading.
Only the freshest product is used, as evidenced by this enticing counter having been positioned right alongside where the fish is actually filleted and sold.
