Pengelly's Fishmongers


Pengelly's have a long tradition of sourcing and serving the finest Cornish fish available anywhere in the UK.

For almost half a century Pengelly's of Looe have been supplying local people and the finest Cornish restaurants with the freshest selection of fish and shellfish from the day-boat fleet of Looe and Polperro.The unique

conditions in Looe harbour make the fishing community entirely dependent on the tide in order to set out and return to the quayside. As a result a fleet of small day-boats developed over the years, with the fishermen departing and returning the same day. This means that the fish sold on Looe Quay is among the freshest and highest quality in the United Kingdom. Most of Pengelly's fish is line-caught in small numbers, and our net-caught fish are captured using small, non-destructive, netting techniques. Rob and his team source their fish direct from the quayside next door to the shop, which means that the fish is as fresh as possible and of the highest standard.
