Fish on silver tray

The Fish Deli, Ashburton

Uniquely for a delicatessen, the Fish Deli is, as the name suggests, all about fish. The local, seasonal catch is prepared exactly as the customer requests and recipes are available to encourage shoppers to try less familiar species. Round off your visit by browsing the cookware, gifts and cookbooks, or pick up some delicious olives and local wine to complement the fish.

Devon Fish Box

Delivering Devon-caught fish across the UK, much of the catch (including King Scallops) comes from Devon Fish Box’s own Brixham-based boat. The contents of each box vary depending on what comes in that day. You can’t say more seasonal than that.

The Devon Fishmonger

With a shop in Honiton, the Devon Fishmonger also offers an online service, delivering West Country fish and shellfish within 24 hours. Sourced from Brixham, Clovelly, Dartmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis, you can expect super-fresh fish straight off the boat.

David Walker and Son, Brixham

Located on the Brixham quayside, David Walker and Son are but a hop, skip and a jump from both the sea and the fish market. Where better to pick up Devon’s finest, freshest fish?

Brixham Fish Market Tours

Getting to Brixham for a 6am start may seem daunting, but it’s well worth it to see the sheer scale of the catch going under the hammer, as well as the drama and action of the bidding. The £12.50 fee includes a market tour with an expert guide, as well as English breakfast and a donation to the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
