Fishmonger

I'm Gary and own a Fishmerchants and Game dealers which has been in our family since 1889. I have run the business for 30 years. We supply hotels, restaurants, pubs and caterers alongside any other establishments which requires our services. We also serve customers in our shop too. My experience and expertise have developed over time and I am now a very competent and skillful fishmonger. We have to prepare a lot of orders specifically for our customers, and these are skills which I feel more chefs, catering students and caterers would benefit from learning. It’s a skill and art form which is slowly dying out with less and less people choosing to prepare their own food. We have created our training for those that would like to develop skills which range from dressing your own crab to filleting fish.
