I was very impressed with the list of fish available on a board outside. Langoustines!. Jellied eels too which surprised me so I felt the need to go inside and learn more. They were indeed available but some notice was required. I had to admire...More

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!
