We are London’s No.1 independent seafood supplier. We aim to be the most trusted and admired seafood company amongst the customers we supply and in the areas we serve.
In an environment of rising wholesale prices for fresh fish, we know that our prices are competitive.
Price is, of course, very important but value for money should be more so.
You will not find a fishmonger with more knowledge of the seafood market, seasonal species or sustainability issues.
We will work with you and give you honest advice and prices that won’t change without advance notice or explanation.
The majority of our stock is responsibly sourced from sustainable areas whenever possible with local landings from UK coastal areas.
Our fishmongers are renowned in the trade for being the best. We hand fillet all our fish in-house and our team have 180 years combined experience preparing fish. We train Chefs in fish preparation and fish know-how.
Our drivers are checked, trustworthy and courteous. In fact in a recent independent customer survey 82% assessed our drivers as excellent or above average.
As we are located in Vauxhall (Zone 1) and Coulsdon. Our delivery responses are fast and reliable. We work within your requests, whenever possible.
You’re in good company – we held a Royal Warrant as Fishmongers to HM The Queen until her passing.
Our stated promise to supply coastal-fresh fish means that our quality control procedures have to be extremely robust.
When we receive our fish, our very experienced buyers will thoroughly check it for appearance, odour, freshness, size, condition, packaging and composition; if it does not meet our exacting standards it will be returned to the supplier. Consequently, we consistently receive high-quality fish.

This means you can have full confidence that your products have been impeccably handled and should a query arise from your customers, we will have all of the traceability paperwork to hand for you.
