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 Cornish 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. The shop was originally owned by a Mr Frost, so it was Frosts Fishmongers (still it's official name), then it was owned by a Mr Haddock (yes, true), but it's been owned by Kevin for years and years and he's been a fishmonger for 50 years.

Wonderful fresh and frozen fish and shellfish just waiting to be delivered to you!
