We have an uncompromising attitude towards our fish; it has to be fresh and of the highest quality...in fact, our fish is so fresh that you’d think you were at the seaside!
Simon, who was previously a chef at the Pear Tree at Purton as well as The Connaught in London, runs the fish counter, which is stocked daily with fish delivered from Newlyn. The fish are caught on day boats, making it as fresh from the sea as possible and usually delivered the morning after being caught. It means the fish is certified as responsibly sourced as well as being sustainable and supporting UK fishing.
Simon says "Supermarkets use trawlers to catch their fish and then freeze at sea in order to last the week or so before coming back to land reduces the quality significantly."
We regularly have on display Wild Sea Bass, Lemon Soles, Red Mullet, Squid, Hake, line caught Mackerel, Wild Turbot, Brill, Monktail, Cod, Haddock and premium Scottish Salmon to name but a few. Why not give the shop a call for this week’s catch or better still pop in to see what's on offer.
We also have available shellfish such as Mussels, Clams (Razors and Palourdes), Lobsters, Crabs, and Crevettes as well as finest quality Scottish Smoked Salmon, Cod’s Roe etc., and not forgetting our superb homemade fishcakes which are proving extremely popular.
So, need inspiration for dinner or advice on the health benefits of eating fish? Then why not pop in and speak with us - we are passionate about fish!
