Fresh Fish in Croydon and Bromley from Friendly Fishmongers

Based on Lower Addiscombe Road, The Prawn brokers has been selling fresh fish and shellfish – cooked, raw and live – since 1998. Our customers know what they want when it comes to quality and freshness so our fishmongers, as part of a family-run business, really put in the effort to provide the best. And it isn’t just customers local to Addiscombe, Croydon and Bromley who pay us visits - people are prepared to travel much further afield for our carefully selected fresh fish and shellfish.

Our fishmongers begin their day early in the morning – no later than 2.30am – sourcing our products from Billingsgate Market. Remember the old saying that “the early bird catches the cod, lobster or tiger prawn”? Leave it late in the market and the quality buys have gone. Whilst our customers in Addiscombe, Croydon and Bromley are sleeping, our fishmongers are busy selecting, preparing, sorting or cooking the best fresh fish and shellfish that money can buy.

During the day, we receive “ship-to-shore” calls from trawlers operating off the South Coast advising us of their catches. Lobsters and scallops from Rye. Dover soles, mackerel and witches from Newhaven. Bass and lemon soles from Brixham in Devon. By the time it reaches The Prawn brokers, it has only been out of the sea for 24 hours – that’s what we call fresh!

A wide choice of fresh fish and shellfish is always available to our customers in the Croydon, Bromley and Addiscom be areas. Out of the ordinary requests can be sourced by our fishmongers with 48 hours of notice. We try our hardest to ensure all of our products are ethically caught – hook and line, netted and in season from small day boats only out fishing for 24 hours.

The Pawnbrokers provide catering for whatever the occasion may be – our customers don’t really need an excuse! Shellfish platters can be made to order to suit all budgets. Whole dressed salmon are a favourite – seven days of notice is a must, please. All catering is done to suit individual requirements.

The range of seafood products at The Prawn brokers is second-to-none in our opinion. We also supply fresh smoked products – haddock, salmon, mackerel, kippers and roe – to customers local to Croydon and Bromley and also to many from outside the area.

A wide range of frozen products is also available, from whole prawns and lobster tails to whitebait and much, much more. The “Best of the East End” can also be found here – jellied eels, cockles, whelks and winkles are on sale every day and not just on a Sunday.

Pay our fishmongers a visit, or contact us by phone or by email. We will be pleased to hear from you and we are sure it won’t be long before you too regard yourself as a regular.
