Sharky & George Fishmongers
John George and Martyn Breen run this mobile fishmonger’s stall supplying fish direct from the docks.
They sell a mixture of fresh, smoked and shellfish sourced mainly from Cornwall and Lowestoft and collected the same morning (they start at 3am). Some fish also originates from Icelandic and Scottish waters.
Sharky & George only sell fish caught using sustainable methods that’s in season to ensure best prices and quality.
You can find their stall at Kimbolton market every Friday 10-4 and Cambridge city centre market every Sunday from 8-4.
Orders can be arranged for nearly any sea fish and samphire is usually on offer too. On a recent visit I purchased a fabulous whole wild brown trout!
If you don’t fancy cooking the fish yourself, pick your fish of choice from Sharky & George and take it into the New Sun Inn in Kimbolton High Street (on Fridays). For a small charge they will cook it to order and serve with salad, chips or new potatoes and vegetables (this service was available at the time of writing but things change so please check with the New Sun Inn first!).
