The Fish Shop is a family owned traditional fishmongers specialising in wild caught fish and shellfish caught around the UK coast with the majority coming out of Newlyn, Cornwall.
Our fish arrives at the shop early every morning and is always the very best and freshest available. In the fish industry, we work with seasons, tides and the variability of catches, and mother nature gives us many challenges, meaning availability will change from day to day. But you can be sure that there will always be the most utterly delicious fresh fish on our counters – at least at the start of each day.
Sue decides each morning what she needs for delivery overnight, and the fish, fresh off the coastal markets, arrives with us at about 5am each day. We get huge deliveries every morning, which means a very early start for TeamFish as we get everything prepared ahead of opening
Because we want everything to be as fresh as possible, afternoon visitors won’t have as much choice as the early birds. We buy ‘just enough’ to get through each day, which means we’re not carrying stock and fresh deliveries arrive from the coast every morning. It does also mean that choice in the afternoon will be limited. For customers wishing to visit later, we highly recommend you place an order and that way if its on your ‘must have’ wish list, you won’t be disappointed
Over the years we have stayed true to our core values, ensuring that every single product we source is the freshest, best quality available and we are proud to be able to showcase the very best of British seafood. We work closely with a few carefully chosen 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.
Of course, not everything is sourced from around the UK, as there are many species that aren’t indigenous to our waters. We have a great range of stunning seafood sourced from farther afield, like our Sashimi Grade line-caught Yellowfin Tuna to our stunning Ecuadorian King Prawns.
One of the things that entices some of our more ‘nervous’ fish lovers are all our freshly prepared ready to cook products. These are hugely popular, using all our wonderful fish and shellfish, with a little extra ‘pizzazz’, making creating the perfect meal super easy, without compromising on taste or quality.
