Which Fish?


High in protein and low in fat, fish and seafood are important sources for vital nutrients like vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine. Eating fish regularly helps prevent against heart disease, as well as a whole host of other health benefits. All that in one portion of fish and chips… no wonder it’s the nation’s favourite.


As an island, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by the sea. When it comes to fish, we’ve got plenty of choice from well-known varieties to some rather more unusual ones. We use local fish wherever possible and our scallops are always hand dived. While people will always associate cod with fish and chips, there are plenty more fish in the sea, and we hope that our menu gives you a chance to try some of our favourites.


Pollachius pollachius

Look past the name and you’ll find this locally-caught whitefish is a great alternative to cod. The texture and taste are virtually identical, making this fish a cheaper and more sustainable substitute for the over-fished cod. Supermarkets may have tried to squeeze this fish into its French nom de plume colin, but we say pollocks to that. We’re proud to have this local fish on our menu


Pleuronectes platessa

Found all around UK shores, plaice are right-eyed, oval-shaped flatfish with characteristic red-orange spots and a pearly white underside. The orange spots are an indication of freshness; brighter spots mean fresher fish. Plaice are growing in popularity as their subtle, sweet flavour makes them a perfect match for some alternative batters – our tempura works really well.


Scomber scombrus

Rich in flavour, and rich in omega-3 fatty acids, this local superfish is not to be sniffed at. When it’s cooked well, this fish turns deliciously moist, flaky and almost buttery in texture. We think it’s hugely underrated and hope that this tasty local fish floats your boat too. The mackerel on our menu comes from local fishermen and we like to serve it lightly grilled, with chips lemon and parsley.


Merlangius merlangus

As part of the same family as cod, whiting is a good economical and sustainable alternative. With its fine flakes, this delicate fish works well in all fish and chip dishes, and on the Seafish menu we like to turn it into homemade fish fingers for our Fish Finger sandwich. They taste even better with some of our Seafish Tartare sauce…
