In the business for more than 45 years, Walter Purkis must have scaled, gutted and filleted a fair few fish in his time. While he’s at the helm of the Muswell Hill branch, son John runs the Crouch End branch, which also has an on-site smoker that keeps both shops stocked with smoked salmon, haddock, kippers and mackerel. The Purkis family focus on supplying fish from Devon and Cornwall and opt for wild where possible. Highlights of the summer months include wild Scottish salmon, sea trout and fresh samphire.

A long-time family business, they really know their stuff and the products are always very high quality. They also do their own smoking (of fish!) and sell smokers. Everything a traditional fishmongers should be.
Helpful staff with a great selection of fresh fish every day. They have a large live lobster tank where you can choose and they will cook it for you.
