Heading towards Easter and the #Fishiest Friday of the year…

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!
