The Fish Shop Camberley

The Fish Shop opened its doors in December 2014 with the ambition of bringing the freshest fish from around the UK to our friends and neighbours in Camberley, Surrey.

Since our opening we have been amazed by the response, and it has been truly humbling to welcome so many visitors to our shop from near and far.

We have stayed true to our core values, ensuring that every single product we sell is the freshest, best quality available and we are really proud to be able to showcase the best fish in the world. We work closely with a very select few suppliers, who share our values, and we have close friendships with many of the fishermen who catch the fish you will find on our counter. We also actively support The Fishermen’s Mission which is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care, helping all fishermen, active or retired and their families. We have helped to raise funds and awareness for this very worthwhile charity for many years and were very proud to be awarded their Outstanding Achievement Award in 2013.

And finally to our team – Jasmine, Tiago, Charlotte and Jonathan – our business simply wouldn’t be what it is without them. They are truly inspirational and wonderful to work with. They are as passionate about the business as we are and we are very lucky to have them on board

We hope you enjoy our website. If you would like to contact us for any additional information, or would like to give us feedback please get in touch

Calling last orders – Saturday 16th December

With just a few sleeps left, tomorrow (Saturday 16th) is the last day to place your orders for Christmas and New Year

 

If you need a little help or inspiration our Christmas Leaflet has some lovely ideas showcasing  some of our most popular products. Or if you’re not sure what you fancy, give us a call or pop in and we’ll be happy to take you through some options

Fish will be very short as we head towards the weekend, so we do advise you to consider getting ahead of the game and buying your fish a little early. Fresh fish freezes really well, and as it’s only for a couple of days, you won’t even notice it’s been frozen. We can even vacuum pack it for you to keep the quality at its absolute best.

And finally, don’t forget, we close on the 24th until 29th and 30th for New Year and then we’re closed again until Thursday 4th January.

Availability on our final Fish Preparation workshop…

** Friday 10th November – now fully booked**

Our hugely popular fish workshops have been running every month for the last 3 years, but as we are now so busy in the shop, we had to make the difficult decision to stop delivering them

We have been persuaded to a final date, and have availability on Friday 10th November. The cost is £60.00 per person, and you will learn to fillet 4-5 different types of fish – and get to take everything you prepare home to enjoy over the weekend. We talk you through recipe ideas and help you broaden your repertoire by introducing you to some of the fish you may not have tasted before

The evening starts at 6:30pm and finishes at between 9-9:30pm. Places can be booked by calling us on 01276 66618

Celebrating August Bank Holiday Weekend…..

We’re really looking forward to Bank Holiday weekend, as #Teamfish will heading to Cornwall to support Newlyn Fish Festival. We’ll be meeting up with some of our Newlyn Fishermen and working hard at the festival on Monday setting up the ultimate fish display and helping to raise funds for The Fishermen’s Mission

If you do find yourself anywhere near Newlyn on Bank Holiday Monday, make sure you visit the festival and come and say hello – its an amazing day out!

We’ll be open as usual on Saturday from 7:30am until 4pm, so if you’re looking for some delicious seafood to celebrate your Bank Holiday weekend, its a good idea to get in touch and we can take your order over the phone – 01276 66618

The weather’s looking relatively good, so we’ll have lots of our popular kebabs available. You can check out our Barbecue Selection here

                    

We’ll have a great selection of freshly prepared marinated kebabs available for the weekend – it’s looking likely we’ll see at least a little peek of sunshine

                     

Our new Herby Swordfish kebab is absolutely delicious and already proving to be a firm favourite

Our Barbecue platters are really popular – a selection of ‘mini kebabs’, fish steaks and marinated sardine fillets make them ideal if you want a great selection of tasty seafood

For shellfish lovers, our extra large crabs out of Devon have been amazing this week, beautifully cooked (of course, we cook them!), and really full. And Andrew’s managed to pull in quite a few of his Newlyn Lobsters – we’re heading towards the end of the season, so if you’re a lobster-lover, now is a great time to fill your boots before the supply runs low

Just out the pot, Andrew’s lobsters will be on the counter again this weekend – make the most of them while the season lasts…

Meet Adam, our crab supplier! The only reason I buy my crabs from Adam is because his products are exceptional, honest…

So, add in all sorts of other super-fabulous deliciousness like our Cornish Sardines, super chunky Plaice, beautiful thick Monkfish, lovely sparkly Red Mullet, Wild Brighton Bass, extra large Scottish Razors… and we’re going to be well stocked for what is already looking to be one of our busiest weeks of the year.

Oh, and don’t forget… all of our fish and shellfish is so beautifully fresh, that anything you buy from us on Saturday will still be absolutely perfect, kept in your fridge, to enjoy on Monday,

Early August, a perfect time for seafood lovers…

It may be feeling slightly autumnal, but the great British summertime is always superb for seafood

We always know it’s the height of summer (even if it doesn’t feel like it) when the Cornish Sardines start to show up. These sparkly jewels arrive off the Cornish coast at the beginning of August every year and stay with us until early February. Available as whole fish, butterfly fillets or marinated in a delicious Piri Piri dressing they are one of our absolute favourite seasonal treats

We’ve also got a few weeks left of the Cornish Lobster season and Andrew’s pots are at their fullest at this time of year. Because we take his total catch there’s a great range of sizes and prices available. They’re all delivered into us live, and we freshly cook them throughout the day, so they’re always sweet and extra delicious.

Plaice have really fattened up and are super plump, and the famous #AjaxHake is spectacular at the moment  Alan’s short trips mean his fish is super fresh and firm and a real favourite with our customers

And finally, if you’re braving the showers and firing up the barbecue we’ve got a superb range of ready prepared and marinated seafood available.

As ever, it’s always a good idea to ring up and place your order as we do tend to sell out quite early over the weekend

    1. Hi Amy, yes we do sell lobster tails. They are a frozen product so we always have them in stock. Even better, native lobster season in almost upon us, so although we also always have fresh Natives, live, whole or dressed when the season starts in full in early May they are abundant and the price drops significantly. If you’d like more details give us a call on 01276 66618, Sue

  1. Hi Sue, Duncan and Tiago, Thank you so much for the fish preparation workshop which I attended last Friday. It was fun and inspiring to learn from such professionals as yourselves. I think I might have to get myself booked onto a shellfish preparation course in the future. 🙂

  2. Sue, Jasmine and Team; It was very good of you to share your experience today, and such a pleasure to hear you talk through the lobster and crab dressing. I hope to visit again soon, next time with my cool bag and Ice packs! Many thanks, Richard

    1. Thanks Richard, I’m really glad it was useful for you to spend a bit of time in the shop. If you need anything else, you know where we are, Sue

    1. Hi Ben. We often get large haddock fillets so could cut the loins from them if you needed them. Best to ring a day or two in advance to check what size we’re getting, if they’re too small you won’t get decent loins from them.

    1. Hi Mark, yes we do sell live cockles. They come from Teignmouth in Devon and cost £12.50kg – they’re exceptional, we have them most weekends although it does depend on harvests

  3. Hi Sue,
    Came in the shop yesterday and bought two platters of shell fish, I have to say they were both delicious right down to the very last winkle, brilliant. Thank you.

    1. Hello,

      Sorry for the delay in replying, IT ‘challenges’! Thanks so much for your lovely comments, I’m so pleased you enjoyed the platters, they’re very popular, although we don’t usually have enough space to put them onto our display, so many customers had no idea we did them!

  4. My husband and i so enjoyed meeting Andrew and his wife Sally today. The atmosphere in the shop was amazing . The lobster was delicious. Look forward to trying more of your wonderful fish soon.

    1. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We were so lucky to have Andrew and Sally with us today. There definitely was a real buzz in the shop. Delighted that you enjoyed your lobster, we’ll have lots more once the season gets underway and Andrew has promised to come back for a weekend in the summer

  5. What an unexpected find! Good selection, good service and good quality. And excellent fish-cakes. I do hope it all goes well for you.

    1. Thank you Jon! We’re really pleased that you enjoyed your visit to The Fish Shop and delighted you like our fishcakes. Many thanks and kind regards

      Sue

  6. Have just placed our first order (rainbow trout for Christmas Eve). We were most impressed by the welcoming staff and the advice provided on fish type and size. Look forward to our first tasting and hope to join the band of regular customers.

  7. Hi all, still reeling from the enthusiasm you guys injected me with last night on the Fish Workshop. Thank you so much for a fabulous fishy experience. We did so much more than I imagined, great instruction, great motivation and tons of good info. See you soon all, Josie

  8. Good morning Sue, just a quick note on your web site, looks great we are just leaving the fishing grounds now 11pm monday have hake aboard for sale in Newlyn wed morning, keep up the great work all best Alan and Crew Ajax PZ36

  9. Hi Sue. Looking for something special for Christmas lunch. My sister and I don’t eat meat so I’d like something that I can easily cook alongside the stuff for everyone else. Turbot? Is that seasonal? Others suggestions please

    1. Hi Becky, Turbot would be lovely, or a Wild Bass would also be a really delicious treat for Christmas. You could maybe do something indulgent like a Lobster Thermidor, or a simple but fabulous roasted loin of Cornish Hake (I had hake on Saturday at Rick Stein’s in Winchester and it was really delicious with a rich mushroom sauce) Give me a call on 01276 66618 when you have a chance and we can talk through some options.

  10. As I said when I phoned up earlier, the large fillet of cod we bought from you was sensational, even though I had frozen it, it was still delicious with great texture.

    1. Hi Andy, we’re so pleased you enjoyed your cod, and appreciate your lovely comments. It was Cornish fish, supplied directly from Newlyn fish market and we’re so proud to have such a fresh, delicious product on our slab x

  11. Sue, Duncan and Jasmine came to the Camberley WI along with their fish and gave a fantastic talk and demonstration on how to fillet fish. Sue also told us about all the fish and where it comes from and about herself and family. I now know why it is called “Passionate about fish”.

    1. Hi Jackie, thanks for the lovely comments, we really enjoyed the evening! It was great to see so many of our customers and have the opportunity to explain what we’re all about x

  12. Just wanted to say how helpful Sue is. We are having a Seafood party on Saturday ,some great advice given and a very friendly service. Thank you

    1. Thanks Claire! That’s lovely of you. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. We’ll have everything ready for you x

  13. Have just added hake to the list of fresh fish bought from you. Wow!!! Will probably never eat fish out again ! The fish we have had from you has been exceptional . Thank you

    1. Hi Julia, thanks so much for the lovely comments! Our hake was caught by Alan & crew on the Ajax, out of Newlyn and is hugely popular. It’s such a delicious fish, and the quality of Alan’s catch is always exceptional. If you tweet at all, he’s @Ajax_Hake and does enjoy seeing the finished results!!

  14. hi sue i came in today for some tuna and fish pie mix. i asked about fish stock, will you have some on Saturday if so can you put one a side for me i’ll be in Saturday afternoon. many thanks

  15. Thanks for the wonderful salmon we bought from you yesterday. Had friends over for a dinner party last night. It was delicious (and not just because of my cooking…). We think what you have is a real gem, and just down the road. We will certainly be buying all our seafood from you in the future.

    1. Hi Daryl, we’re really delighted that you’re salmon was a success! Thanks for your lovely comments, and we look forward to seeing you again soon x

  16. We live down the road from your shop and have passed it several times with out coming in. On Saturday we decided it was time to have a look. I love shellfish and Tina is a lover of Italian food and a great cook (although a vegetarian she prepares and cooks meat and fish for me).She had promised me a pasta clam dish, one of my favourites.
    What an absolute gem your shop is! Friendly and knowledgable staff who obviously care about the products they sell and the customers they sell them to. We bought fresh clams and some pasta! We both love to cook although my skill level is poorer than Tina’s so we have signed up to one of your fish course in May. We can’t wait.
    I had a fantastic clam dish (thanks Tina) last night.
    Your shop is a revalation
    Thank you
    Stuart

    1. Hi Stuart, thanks so much for your lovely comments, we’re so pleased you enjoyed your visit. The clams are fabulous, Jasmine cooked some for us last week, and the’re back on the menu for Wednesday night. Sorry, I didn’t get the chance to speak to you when you came in, I was aware of the fish workshop conversation, but was tied up with other customers – looking forward to welcoming you to the art of fishmongery in May 🙂

  17. Had fresh scallops in their shells bought yesterday. The most amazing flavour. Easy to cookBest thing we have eaten for months Great store very friendly and helpful. We are so excited to find you on the doorstep

    1. Hi Faie, Thanks so much for taking the time to post your comments, we’re delighted you were happy with your scallops. We had some last weekend too, I just couldn’t resist them, and have to agree, they were pretty special! Hope to see you again soon, Sue x

  18. Hi there, great to have you back. I used to be a regular when you had your first shop in Camberley and also when you moved sadly, too briefly to your last one there.
    I have been buying my fish online from Cornwall!! Not very economic when you are a single pensioner living alone!
    I have yet to visit your Frimly Road establishment but as I live only half a mile away it won’t be long.
    Does one park on the pavement (I have a blue badge) as walking any distance is not my strong suit?
    Also can I pre-order online, I didn’t see anything on your website, or do I ring on the day to see what is available?
    I am particularly keen to get hold of A:Winkles and B: Huss/dog fish/Rock salmon. I have only managed to get the latter at the Mariners in Basingstoke Covered in batter) I believe there is or was an embargo on it.
    Excuse the diatribe its just great to herald your return. Here’s hoping you have sufficient customers to support you this time.
    Kind regards,
    Mr David Rowe.

    1. Hi David, thanks for getting in touch and we’re delighted to be back! Camberley certainly seems to have missed a fishmonger and we are extremely busy, which is fabulous…

      You are more than welcome to park at the side of the shop. You’ll notice a wide driveway on the right hand side, as you’re looking in, and we own that, so please feel free to pop your car there whenever you are visiting. There is a bit of a pothole by the wall on the right, so just mind your footing!

      We don’t put the rage on our website as it changes every day with prices and availability, we do get a wide range of species, and our focus is on premium quality, fresh, seasonal fish which we mainly source from Newlyn in Cornwall. You’re very welcome to call either in the morning, or around 11am the day before as I will know what I have managed to get from Newlyn fish market by then. It is purchased on the market and then delivered overnight, arriving in the shop at around 4am.

      We usually have winkles. I buy them live and cook them in the shop. We also carry a stock of ones we have cooked and frozen, to make sure we have them available. I also do get dogfish from time to time, but only when the quality is exceptional.

      Pease let me know if I can be of further assistance. Our phone number is 01276 66618 if you want to give me a call,

      Kindest regards

      Sue

    1. Hello, thanks for getting in touch and I’m so sorry for the delay in responding, I’ve been having ‘admin troubles’!

      Yes, we sell whole crab. We get them delivered live and cook them in the shop. We also stock brown shrimps – at the moment we only sell peeled, but we can also get them whole. You can always call up and place an order, I just need a few day’s notice. And… we always have cockles, they’re one of our most popular products. If you need any further info, please give me a call on 01276 66618

      Kind regards

      Sue

    1. Hello,

      Hi Keith,

      Thanks for your message and so sorry for the delay in responding to your message. The website is new and improved and I’ve had a bit of an admin nightmare, so this has slipped through the net. Totally my fault, but I think I’ve got to grips with it now.

      Yes we do sell Arbroath Smokies, we have them most days but do occasionally run out – its a good idea to give us a call a day or so before you want them to make sure we’re not waiting for another delivery. We get them directly from Iain Spinks at The Original Smokie Company and they are really delicious – the smell is like bonfire night! They cost £14.95kg and the weights vary, but the ones we have at the moment work out at roughly £6 a pair

      Kind regards

      Sue

  19. Do you sell red mullet and Tilappia ? I know the latter is farmed in this country but not certain about the Red Mullet. Would love to come and buy both.

    1. Hi Maralyn. We do sell red mulletwhenever it’s available and we’ve actually got some coming in tomorrow, fresh from Newlyn, Cornwall. We don’t sell tilapia as we mainly focus on wild capture British species with a few premium exceptions like tuna and long prawns, Sue
