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 Ashleigh – 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
Good Friday is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for fishmongers, and this year we’re lucky that tides and weather seem to be on our side, so fish should be plentiful
Alan and his crew are back out to catch more of their spectacular Cornish Hake in time for the Easter market at Newlyn
Andrew’s also out on the water again hard at work, pulling his pots to bring us more of his exceptional Cornish Lobsters. We should also have some of his pollack, rays and hopefully one or two monk
Andrew’s pollack is always a big hit with our customers
Line caught bass are back, after being off the menu for a couple of months, and we’re seeing the first of the season’s wild black bream. Flat fish are all looking good, and we had our first few plaice back on our counter last week, they’ve fattened up nicely after their ‘lean months’.
If you fancy fish, but are just too busy to prepare anything after a hard day, we’ve got lots of freshly prepared ideas to make your meal really easy.
One of our most popular dishes is our fish pies – they always go down a treat. Don’t forget we can make these for you in your own dishes – they are bespoke, so you can decide exactly what you’d like in your pie – extra smoked haddock, a few prawns… it’s your choice. Dishes for Good Friday need to be brought in by Thursday morning, so that we can get them all ready and prepared for Friday collection
‘Homemade’ fish pies in your own dish – the ultimate cheat
We’ll be open all week as usual, with slightly shorter hours on Good Friday – 8am – 3pm, and as we’re likely to be super-busy, its always a good idea to place an order if you know you’d like something specific – 01276 66618. Otherwise simply pop in, see what takes your fancy and make your selection on the day
p.s. Don’t forget we close on Tuesdays following a Bank Holiday, as there won’t be any fish until Wednesday!
We’ve been reliably informed that there will be sunshine over Camberley on and off for the next few days, so we’ve been working our socks off this morning to get everything ready for those impromptu barbecues
Although Friday and Saturday aren’t looking particularly great, today and Sunday look like the perfect excuse to light the fires and indulge in a little alfresco dining
We’ve brought back some of last year’s favourites, but there’s also some new and exciting products available.
And if the weather doesn’t deliver, everything can be cooked in the oven or under the grill.
It’s going to be a little hard to gauge just how much we’ll need to make, so if you know you’d like something specific, give us a call on 01276 66618 and place your order
Its still a little early to get too excited, but Andrew has just hauled a few of his well-placed, well-baited lobster pots and they were full of lovely, plump, lively Cornish Lobsters.
So, whether you’re looking for a special treat for your mum, or a little bit of something tasty to celebrate spring, we’ve got lots of fabulous shellfish heading our way
Andrew’s lobsters are on the road from Newlyn and will be with us first thing on Friday morning. We’ll have the lobster pot ready and waiting , so if you’re not comfortable cooking them yourself we’ll have freshly boiled and fully prepared available too
If lobster’s not your thing, we’ve also got load of our stunning extra-large Devon crabs on their way and again, these will also be heading for the pot nice and early. We did sell out last week, so its always a good idea to reserve yours if you know you’d like one
Packed with sweet white meat – our freshly cooked crabs from Devon
Our oyster selection this week will be Maldons, Colchesters and River Teign
We’re preparing lots of home made, ready to eat goodies for the weekend
If you’d like to place an order, give us a call on 01276 66618 and we’ll make sure we get it ready for you
This week the UK celebrates one of our all time favourite dishes – pies!
We did wonder why our fabulous homemade fish pies were selling better than ever, and now we know
As you probably already know, all our fish pies are made using the best of our Cornish catch, Wester Ross Scottish salmon, and our super-chunky, extra-smokey smoked haddock. We make all our own rich cheesy sauce, and top them with buttery mash and extra mature cheddar – they’re absolutely delicious
To celebrate pie week, we’ve decided to donate 10% of sales from every fish pie sold this week to RNLI Penlee.
RNLI Penlee are based in Newlyn and ensure the safety of the Newlyn fleet, so we think its a great cause and very appropriate for us to support. Andrew, our infamous lobster fisherman is a crew member, and has actually sent us some beautiful fish this morning, so we’ll be adding some his fish into our pies this week
Don’t forget, if you pop your own pie dish in the day before we can make you your very own ‘homemade’ fish pie, and you can claim you made it yourself #supercheat
You can always give us a call on 01276 66618 to reserve yours for this week, we may struggle to keep up with demand
Well, maybe there’s a few other things that your Valentine might also appreciate, but if you want to treat that special person to a delicious home cooked meal, we’ve got some fabulous ideas to inspire you.

Remember, we don’t open on Sunday or Monday, but you can get in touch over the weekend by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01276 66618 and we can make sure we have everything ready for the big day on Tuesday
