For someone who is obsessed with seafood, I feel super lucky to live so near to this incredible fish mongers. Since finding out that I was coeliac I have been stripped of most of my favorite fishy treats, particularly taramosalata, white bait and calamari. By living near to such an amazing wide ranging fish mongers I am able to recreate these favorite dishes of mine easily and they taste all the better for it. I always wonder if they ever realise it's the same three people (me, mum and dad) requesting smoked cod roe on a weekly basis when I'm home as I absolutely love it and will guaranteed buy it all if I know they have it! Alongside my personal favorites they sell lots of different fresh fish from turbot to crab as well as lovely shell fish and condiments. So, if like me you are head over heels for responsibly sourced fish and want to get it from somewhere that really takes pride in providing excellent fresh fish then check out this fish mongers in Crouch end and Muswell Hill. 

Excellent fresh fish and wonderful, professional staff that know how to clean/cut the fish.

Wonderful to have a proper wet fish shop in the heart of Crouch End! Friendly staff are happy to cut you just a small fillet, or to advise you on different fishes to make a fish pie. Their hot-smoked salmon is to die for!

Really knowledgeable guys here that always help me to navigate the sometimes confusing world of fish.
Everything is sushi grade too which is perfect.

An excellent local fishmonger who stocks only the freshest fish in season. Also excellent local smokery.

Brilliant fresh fish, knowlegable staff and their own smoked fish that is cured in the smokehouse at the back of the shop

Great fresh fish and staff can answer questions about cooking when I try something different.
