Fresh and frozen fish and shellfish for home delivery




The last bank holiday of the year is coming up!
A long weekend - tim
e for some great fish!
Barbeque tim
e is running out!

Try one of our kebabs or make your own!



We've just had a delivery of middlecut tuna, it's down from £9.35 to £6.25 for 200g, that's a bargain in anybody's book!

Another reason that the British summer is so great - SARDINES
The weather is good, the boats are out!
Like crabs, sardines are at their best at the moment, and down in price to 50p each, that's from 85p!  
So, a bargain and delicious as well.  Ideal barbeque food!

Crabs are great for outdoor eating!  All you need is some crusty bread, a salad, some mayonnaise, cold white wine and you're sorted (maybe add some friends to help you enjoy). 
We've a great line in cooked crabs - order them as they are or ask us to open the
m and crack the claws.  
And new dressed crabs from Devon, only £6 each.
To make life really simple, try some of our Indonesian white crab meat, it's fresh, and half of the price of English white crab meat, very sweet tasting.

British crabs are always the best crabs, and they are at their best at the moment.
They are 400-500g in size, 
so you'll get at least a 400g crab, but you might be lucky and get 500g!  
They are only £5.00 each! These are cooked by us. 
What could be better than sitting outside with a glass of white wine, some brown bread and butter and a CRAB.  
If you're not used to preparing crabs, we will do it for you! 
No need for expensive shellfish tools, there's always an old teaspoon to be found at the back of a drawer - if the teaspoon's got a square end, that's all you need!


Just delivered - a new line in
DEVON dressed crabs.
They are 170g and
down to £6 each for a limited period.
They look good with a crab claw placed on top
(see photo)!

Fresh Indonesian crab meat is down to £10 from £14.50.  Vacuum packed, keep it in your fridge, ideal for serving fresh in a salad or in cooked dishes.  Very sweet tasting.

French samphire is back!  
It's from the valley of the Somme, and reminds us
of that luscious, crisp samphire that we used to get from England.  
Now's the time to buy - it's at its best.

Fishmonger
Fresh fish to your door from The Smelly Alley Fish Company
The Smelly Alley Fish Company is a real traditional town-centre fishmonger, so you can order from an enormous range of fish and shellfish, from salmon to scallops, from lobsters to lemon soles, from turbot to tuna, from cod to cuttlefish.  The Smelly Alley Fish Company specializes in fresh fish, and it's prepared by us according to how you want it, from portions of salmon to skinned fillets of seabass to whole, cleaned whiting, they are not pre-packed, ready-made frozen portions. Your fish will be delivered when you want it. It arrives in a sealed box,clean and odour-free. All fish is individually vacuum-packed, with ice, ready to cook or put straight in the freezer.

What's in a name? We're in a street that has had food shops in it for hundreds of years. In the 1600s it had an open sewer running down its length, so it became known as Smelly Alley, and that's what local people call it. Now there is just one fishmonger, one greengrocer and one butcher, and we are in Reading, Berkshire.
Wonderful fresh and frozen fish and shellfish just waiting to be delivered to you!
