If you want fresh caught fish of all descriptions Pengelly's is a must. They only way you would get it fresher is if you fished it out of the sea yourself.

Purchased a couple of Monkfish fillets, although not cheap they tasted superb and were super fresh, caught the same day. The range of seafood available was just stunning, and I succumbed to a pot of cockles, with salt, pepper and vinegar. A real treat!
