We’re celebrating our first 6 months!

This week, we’re celebrating our first 6 months in The Fish Shop! We opened our doors on 4th December last year – how time flies when you’re having fun!

We’ve had the most amazing journey and as we’ve said many times, it’s all down to our fabulous customers who make our job so easy and make every day special

It’s a great time of year for seafood, and we’ve got some stunning fish coming up from our wonderful friends in Newlyn to kick of this very special week.

We’ve also got a real treat in store for you! As a genuine ‘Thank you’ to all our fabulous customers we’re running a very special offer on our British lobsters. The season is just coming into full swing now, and with the support of our lobster men, we’re bringing lots of live lobsters up from the South West. They’ll be available all week (while stocks last) – live, boiled or split and dressed – for £10 each! Don’t ever say we’re not good to you xxx

Now open until 7pm EVERY Thursday!

Shellfish counterWe know how much you’re enjoying shopping at The Fish Shop, so we thought we’d open a bit later one day a week, for those of you who struggle to get to us before 5:30pm…

We’re now well into our 4th month and have just enjoyed our busiest week ever.  It’s been fabulous, serving all our loyal fish fans as well as seeing many new customers visiting us for the first time.

Lots of you are saying that you’d like to be able to pop in mid week after work, so starting from 30th April, we will be staying open until 7pm every Thursday. We’ll make sure we have a great selection available for you, and the fish will be the same superb quality, so can be kept refrigerated and used on Friday or Saturday, if needed.

You can also give us a call on 01276 66618 and place an order for collection – that way you know for sure we’ll have what you want.

Looking forward to seeing you!



Summer has arrived at The Fish Shop

What a fantastic week, it really felt like the middle of summer  for a few days, and our customers certainly celebrated in style by breaking out the barbecues! And the good weather looks like it’s here to stay, at least for the rest of this week…

We took some of the hard work out of fish preparation and had ready prepared mackerel, salmon and king prawn skewers as well as the extremely popular sweet chilli salmon on our counter just in time for the sunshine.

Its also TURBOT TIME! The Cornish Turbot season is now in full swing – the quality is superb and our counter was heaving with these beauties (at least until we sold out at about 11am!) The season should continue for another few weeks, so don’t miss out and try one while they are at their absolute best

Looking forward to seeing you soon, Sue xx

Heading towards the fishiest of all #FishFridays…

Easter is almost here, and the long standing tradition of eating fish on Good Friday means that we are expecting to be even more busy than normal this week.

We’ll have our usual stunning fish delivered directly from our friends in Newlyn, Cornwall as well as shellfish from Devon and the more exotic species like our Sashimi grade Yellow Fin Tuna and beautiful, meaty Swordfish Loins

You don’t have to get up at silly o’clock to make sure you get what you want – give us a call on 01276 66618 and we’ll put your order away, so you won’t be disappointed
