“The Fish Deli is unique. A superb deli, specialising in mainly fishy things.
Fresh fish is sourced responsibly from local day boats. Customers are encouraged to buy the daily catch of what is available and in season. The deli was recently featured in the Marine Conservation magazine. Gentle advice is given about buying and trying more sustainable varieties.”
“Nick, Michele and their dedicated team also make wonderful fish dishes to take home such as Fish Cakes, Fish Pies, Bouillabaisse, Escabeche, Zarzuela, Curries, Fish pates and dips.”
“A fantastic friendly service, nothing too much trouble, the fish is offered whole, filleted, butterfly filleted, pin-boned, whatever you would like. The deli has been highly recommended by Seafish and the fish dishes have won Great Taste awards.”
“There is a wide range of dry stores, outstanding Olives, delicious bread, classy cookware, cook books and wine, that includes more unusual labels than what is usually available on the high street, and specially selected to compliment fish.”
“It is an amazing shop bringing together all sorts of people from all walks of life to really enjoy/appreciate good food. The shop has been operating since 2004 and has a huge local following; it has also been featured in a number of national newspapers and Country Living magazine.”
Many customers remark that it is a feast for the senses, with wonderful cooking smells to tempt you in, and an array of well laid out fresh fish, home- made pates, dips and fishcakes in the deli counter alongside a table brimming with glistening Olives.
What Nick has to say: “We source many regional products such as wines, chilli sauces, sea salt etc, but combine it with a large range of well sourced Mediterranean deli products to keep the shop looking fresh, full and interesting. Practically everything we source we taste first, to make sure it is of good quality and are able to advise customers if they are not sure of what to buy. Staff members are given full product training and we frequently have tastings for staff and customers. I have given a number of talks on filleting fish and sustainability, and have helped out at the local schools with cooking and lectures. We have a good choice of recipe leaflets available which we change with the season. We can also offer information on product traceability and pin up small story shelf talkers to give background information where appropriate.”
Our mission is to continue having a full and exciting shop, where customers hopefully find helpful smiling staff and a feast of delicious food.
