After having the last few days off we’re very excited to be getting back to normal on Thursday 5th January
It’s going to be a great start to 2017, with a fabulous selection and good availability. As we start into our 3rd year we’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support and encouragement.
There’s lots of fabulous fish arriving from Cornwall first thing in the morning, and we’ll be opening our doors at 7:30am as usual
Andrew’s been out in the water all day today and is sending us everything he’s caught. We’ll have lots of his stunning, plump fresh Mackerel, Sardines Pollack and Cod. We’ve also got superb Turbot, John Dory, Lemons and Monk arriving as well as our super-chunky Ray wings, Cod fillet and Hake
We’ll be in extra early to make our delicious fish pies and fishcakes and for those of you who like the easy life we’ll have all our usual marinated fillets – all ready just to pop in the oven
We’re looking forward to seeing you and wishing you a very Happy New Year
We’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thank you so much for being truly fabulous customers and friends
Our little team worked their socks off this week, with a marathon 30 hour shift getting all the ordered prepared for collection and the shop set up for the busiest day since we opened
It was a totally bonkers marathon of a day and we really appreciate your patience while you waited for your order. Thank you so much for your kind words of support and the many thoughtful gifts – bubbles, chocolates, homemade cakes and sausage rolls, croissants, lardy cakes and bacon butties – they were all very much appreciated and really helped us get through the day.
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and all your wishes are fulfilled.
Dont forget we don’t open again until Friday 30th December
Sue and #TeamFish
As we head into the last few days before the main event we’re getting everything ready for the busiest weekend of our year
Top fish on our customers wish list this year are Turbot, Wild Bass, Dover Sole, Lemons and Monkfish. We’ve got deliveries coming in every day so there’s still time to pop in and pick up something fabulous for your Christmas table
Shellfish is always a crowd pleaser for Christmas Eve or Boxing Day. Our lobster pot is going to be at capacity with lobsters and crabs and we’ll have some available if you haven’t got round to ordering them.
If you’re looking for something super- easy we’ll be preparing lots of delicious treats – salmon mousse pots, mini dressed crabs and smoked salmon canapé blinis are really tasty and look pretty impressive
Our freshly prepared, ready to cook products are real winners. The sesame coated sashimi tuna with Asian-style dressing is one of our most popular products. It’s absolutely delicious and so simple to cook. Simply sear the outside edge to toast the seeds leaving the centre rare, slice as thin as you like and serve with the dressing.
Our top tip – Friday will be a good day of you want the ‘full selection’. We have lots of deliveries due in and everything you buy from us on Friday will still be absolutely perfect on Sunday. If Friday’s out of the question don’t leave it too late on Saturday – we open at 7am and close at 1:30pm
We’re really looking forward to seeing so many of you over the next few days. If we get a wriggle on there may even be a few mince pies and some mulled wine floating around on Saturday – although that may be wishful thinking as I sit here looking at the scary- long list of orders we’re getting ready to prepare…
If you missed out on Andrew’s prime catch of stunning wild bass last weekend, don’t worry he’s been hard at work all morning and is sending us lots more for tomorrow.
They’ll be in first thing in the morning and we’ll have a good range of sizes available so whether you want a simple treat for two or a delicious meal for more we’ll have something to suit.
He’s also pulled in some stunning pollack, whiting and cod. All sparklingly fresh and in prime condition.
And finally, a real treat… just a few beautiful Cornish Anchovies. They won’t be on the counter for long that’s for sure.
Saturday 17th December is the final day to get your orders in for Christmas and New Year
We’ll be closing our order book at the end of the day on Saturday 17th so, if you want to make sure your requirements are available give us a call on 01276 66618 or pop in and we’ll put your order in the book.
Fish is looking pretty good for next week and the Cornish boys will be working hard to bring fish to the tables of Camberley. Andrew’s heading out early to try to bag a few more of those spectacular bass and he’s pulling in a few rogue pots so we’ll have some of his ‘out of season’ and very sought after lobsters towards the end of the week
Andrew’s ‘stiff-alive’ bass and Alan’s extra large Monk. Stunning specimens caught by fabulous fishermen
The lovely ladies at our crab supplier in Devon will be working their socks off cooking and picking crabs and we’ll be getting deliveries on Tuesday and Thursday. For New Year we’ll get a big delivery of live shellfish so we’ll have freshly cooked cock crabs available when we reopen after Christmas.
Large crabs from Devon available live or freshly cooked
We’ve got oysters coming up from Essex, Devon and Fin de Claires from France. Scottish Langos and Scallops as well as our ‘Badboy’ tigers, palourdes, mussels, winkles and whelks
A selection of oysters, perfect for New Year celebrations
If you’re not sure what you fancy and like to chose your selection on the day, our top tip is to try to arrive early as we are quite likely to sell out of a few things pretty early next week. Our opening times are found in the link below
Christmas Opening Times
Lots of beautiful Wild Cornish bass caught by Andrew Stevens out of Newlyn are heading up from Cornwall to Camberley and they’ll be on our counter tomorrow.
Andrew’s catch – landed today, on our counter tomorrow
The Cornish lobster season finished a few weeks ago and Andrew moved straight onto ‘the fish’. We’ve been enjoying some stunning pollack, haddock, grey mullet and mackerel over the month or so, but this morning’s haul is a real treat and we got very excited when he sent us the image of the bass he’d just landed. ‘They’re still jumping, Sue’ was his first comment when I called him to tell him we’d take the lot.
They’ll be available tomorrow and Saturday if you fancy a real treat for the weekend. Or we can get them all prepped up and ready for you to pop in the freezer. They’ll make a welcome change from leftover turkey that’s for sure
As ever we’ll have lots more super-fresh Cornish fish on the counter – lemons, brill, monk, super-chunky Ray and plaice, Turbot, John Dory and the ever popular Ajax Hake
Line caught Cornish Mackerel
Ajax Hake will be with us tomorrow
Sesame coated tuna loins with Asian style dressing
Stunning Cornish Squid
Crabs are superb at the moment- we’ll have live, freshly cooked and dressed available – and we’ve got our superb River Teign mussels and Shetland scallops arriving first thing

Oh, and finally, finally, a gentle reminder that our order book closes on Saturday.
Pop in or give us a call on 01276 66618 to place your orders
It’s been an absolute whirlwind and I cannot believe we are almost at the end of our second year
We opened our doors on 4th December 2014 with lots of excitement and equal amounts of trepidation, but never did I imagine we’d see so many wonderful customers or sell quite so much fish! It’s been an absolute delight and I can’t thank you all enough for making our business so special
We’all be celebrating in style on Saturday 3rd December with canapés and fizz, so if you’re around please pop in and have a nibble on us

There has been a definite ‘smokey-fish’ haze over Camberley for the last few weeks as customers enjoy all our lovely prepared seafood and make the most of alfresco dining
We’ve installed a brand new counter to accommodate all the fabulous marinated products that are proving to be so popular, and we’re so lucky that Charlotte joined the team last week, or we’d never have coped with the demand.
As ever, it’s always a good idea to give us a call or drop us an email to order products, as we do tend to sell out
Below are some of our most popular products to inspire you

Hope to see you soon,
June has finally arrived, a little damp and not particularly blooming yet, but its a very exciting month for us at The Fish Shop.
We’re now in to week two of our spectacular lobster event, and this week our excuse is that we’re celebrating our 18 month milestone. Our live or freshly boiled native Cornish lobsters are on all this week at the amazing price of £20/kg meaning that you can treat yourself to a delicious treat for as little as £10. We sold out very early last week, so its a good idea to get your orders in to avoid disappointment
As many of you know we buy Andrew Stevens total catch and he’s been very busy pulling up his pots all week. We’ve got lots of lively lobsters including a huge 3k whopper and the lobster pot is running on overtime to keep up with demand.
As well as lobsters, we’re very excited that Turbot Season has now started. For the next few week there should be lots of superb, plump Turbot landed in Newlyn and we’ll be making the most of this very special fish. Roasted whole, or filleted and pan-fried, Cornish Turbot is absolutely stunning and has the well deserved reputation of being one of the most prized fish caught off our coast
Hope to see you soon, and remember, you can always phone in your orders to ensure you get everything you need – 01276 66618
