Walter Purkis and Sons reviews



By Daphne B.

The shellfish I get from Walter Purkis is really very good. I have tried other fishmongers and supermarkets and haven’t found any as good as here. I shall continue to shop here for many more years to come.


By Tiffany R.

Don’t get me wrong, I am far from being an expert on fish, but the sheer amount available here is incredible. The quality is exceptionally superior to any that I have tried in the past; they also stock a great range of different sauces and accompaniments that marry perfectly with the fish that they offer.

If it’s smoked fish that you love then this is the place for you! I love the smoked haddock that they produce here (if I’m correct they actually have a smoking room in the basement) and you can really taste the difference as it’s very fresh. Some fishmongers have that really fishy smell, so you know that the produce has been there too long, but not at Walter Purkis and Sons. Can’t say a bad word about them.
