She explained: "There's a lot of things that we sell more of now that maybe a few years ago we wouldn't have sold.

"So maybe things like the squid that we have in the counter. Once upon a time the boats coming in would just pull them in with their nets and they would literally be discarded of but now it's quite a delicacy, we sell a lot of squid."
