Great traditional fishmonger

This shop's been going since the 1930's so it's got the classic charm of a proper fishmonger's. The fish comes from local fishermen in Lyme Bay as well as Brixham and Newlyn markets, so there's always a good selection and there's advice on hand for how best to cook them.

This shop is great as you can be confident the fish has been locally sourced and very fresh. They even go that step further and can prepare your fish with herbs/butter etc then seal it in an ovenproof bag, ready for you to shove straight in the oven - genius!
