The best hand-picked fresh Grimsby fish in Coventry
I’m on Grimsby Fish Docks (I live in Grimsby) to load up my fishvan early on monday mornings selecting the best fish from several merchants along with smoked fish from Dave Atkinson’s smoke house. I hand-pick my fish as it is cut to ensure you get the best quality available. Main varieties include haddock, cod, plaice, salmon, seabass and trout. Kippers, smoked haddock, smoked mackerel, herring roe & fishcakes. Also depending upon availability and market-price are silver hake, tuna, halibut, lemon sole, mackerel, whiting, Pollock, monkfish tail, red bream, swordfish, dover sole, megrims and witches. My journey to Coventry starts at 4.30am every tuesday morning.
I started driving my fishvan from Grimsby to sell fish in Coventry over 25 years ago when the previous fishman retired. Bill had covered seven years before me and the round was set up and run for 18 years by Norman due to the railway deliveries stopping after the government’s Beeching Report shut down the fresh fish supply lines from Grimsby in 1964. I still have a good number of the original customers from the 1960's & 70's
My customers tell me that mine is the best fish they’ve ever tasted –
