The Return of the Independent Fishmonger !

It’s been almost 15 years since Camberley had a fresh fish shop, and husband and wife Duncan and Sue Lucas have finally taken the plunge to live out their dream of opening a traditional fishmongers in their home town.

The Fish Shop will open its doors to the first customers at 8am on Thursday 4th December with the official GRAND OPENING EVENT on Saturday 6th from 9am – 5pm.

Situated at 110a Frimley Road, just along from the local family butcher Hatto and Sons’, the business will focus on premium, fresh, seasonal British fish plus a great range of high quality imported species like king prawns and fresh tuna.

To complement the wet fish, there will be a selection of homemade fishcakes, pates, terrines and seafood platters.

The shop will be officially opened by Mr. Robert MacKenzie, Sue’s dad.

Mr and Mrs MacKenzie owned the successful family run shop MacKenzie Fish & Game in Camberley town centre from 1979 to 2000. Sue developed her love for the seafood industry when she started her career there as a Saturday girl, later running it with her brother until it was sold in 2000. She went on to create and launch into major retailers many award-winning seafood products, latterly for Sainsbury’s. Although she absolutely loved her role, and describes it as ‘the most amazing job in the world’ the pull of returning to her roots and working in her own fishmongers was simply too much.

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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
