For fresh fish and shellfish throughout 2018, head to Bishops Waltham’s Anyfish shop...

Our Tiny Marketing Co

2018 has begun with us in our fully kitted out new look fishmonger shop, raring to go.

We're all ready for another year of selling the freshest, tastiest fish, most delicious shellfish and our own fantastic smoked products to the excellent people of Bishops Waltham and beyond.


At Anyfish, not only are we always keen to provide great fresh fish and shellfish, we also strive to showcase interesting (and sometimes a little challenging) fish which you may not have tried before. We always make sure our fish is as sustainable as possible and that we use as many local suppliers as we can.

We have all the popular fishy favourites like haddock, bream, bass, mackerel and salmon, but we also champion some old school favourites like skate, kippers, turbot and rock. 


If you’re aiming for a January health kick we have an array of healthy fish for salads - just add your favourite superfood accompaniments. If you’re a fan of Asian recipes we can provide the perfect fish or shellfish for you… shrimps, crab, tuna - whatever floats your boat, we can provide exactly what you’re after.

If you like a hearty fish stew, we can recommend a myriad of excellent ingredients and if you’d like to rustle up a fish pie for the family - we can provide the ingredients, ready chopped and prepped specially. In fact, our fish pie mix makes creating a fabulous fish pie a breeze and we can even suggest an alternative fish pie recipe or two, like this one from our very own, in house culinary expert Stu.


For special occasions we have plenty of delicious options too. If you’re looking for something spectacular or a little bit romantic, how about lobster, scallops or tiger prawns? If you fancy creating your own ceviche or tartare we’ll find the fish to suit.

We have trout from Hampshire, mackerel from Cornwall, clams from Selsey, mussels from Shetland and smoked salmon from  - our very own smokery just up the road! 


There are also plenty of ready prepared fish specials that we can provide. Our dressed crab, garnished whole salmon, mackerel paté or smoked salmon mousse would all go down a storm at a party and you can order in advance to make sure we have everything ready for you, whatever you’re celebrating.

At the Anyfish fishmongers shop we have plenty of fish-flattering accompaniments to choose from. The Anyfish deli is always well stocked with olives, sun dried tomatoes and prosciutto and we also sell fish stock, sauces, spice blends and plenty of other ingredients to bring your recipes to life and add even more flavour to your fantastic fish suppers.


Our friendly fishmongers shop is conveniently positioned just by the main car park in Bishops Waltham.

The Anyfish shop is not all that Bishops Waltham has to offer either. You can buy bread at the bakers, pop to the veggie shop or post office, have a coffee at Josies cafe, buy gifts for friends and get your hair cut too so it’s well worth a visit. 

When you pop into the Anyfish shop, you’re most likely to be greeted by Stu. Not only will he help you select your fish, prepare it exactly as you like it (and so it suits whatever fish recipe you’re planning to create) he can also come up with cooking recommendations, other complimentary ingredients and a host of tips and tricks of the trade. He can show you some recipes, advise on freezing and storage and give you some hints on ensuring your fish and shellfish is always safely prepared and cooked to perfection. Just ask next time you pop in.


Whether you like fried fish on a Friday night, you want to get a little bit more experimental with your cookery or you've spotted a great recipe on the telly which you’d like to try, we can provide the fish, supply the additional ingredients and help you out with the cookery techniques. We’re always priced competitively and choosing to shop locally is really all that keeps small businesses like ours in existence. If you’ve never visited the Anyfish fishmongers shop before, why not pop in? If you’ve not been for a while, why not take a peep at our new look shop and see if anything takes your fancy? If you’re a regular - thanks very much and see you again soon! Here's to a happy, busy 2018.

Best wishes  Pete.

Bishops Waltham Bites - and our delicious Anyfish recipe...

Our Tiny Marketing Co

A few weeks ago we took part in the Fabulous Autumnal food fest which was ‘Bishops Waltham Bites'.

Bishops Waltham Bites was a showcase of the local foodie businesses that provide the people of Bishops Waltham (and beyond) with a veritable feast of eatables every day. Some of the other  local businesses which took part in the event included Sweet Corner, The Crown Pub and Piccola Roma restaurant and the proceeds went towards cookery equipment and the vegetable garden at Bishops Waltham Junior School - an excellent (and very relevant cause).


Tickets to the event were £5 and for that you got to enjoy a taster or tipple in each or the participating outlets (and a chance to tour around, ask questions and pick up tips). At the Anyfish fishmongers shop, we were very pleased to be involved and had plenty of enthusiastic visitors popping by. Stu had rustled up one of his signature recipes - delicious Smoked Salmon Muffins and was on hand to offer advice on selecting fish, preparing fish, choosing sustainable fish and cooking fish to perfection. It was a great opportunity to show off our snazzy new shop fit and to promote our special range of home smoked salmon and other home smoked products - all of which we prepare ourselves at our local Anyfish smokery.

No doubt here’ll be another ‘Bishops Waltham Bites event in the future… we’ll keep you posted of dates. In the meantime, perhaps you’d like to try out Stu’s scrumptious salmon muffin recipe. Simple to create and posh enough for serving up at a festive party - they’d make a delicious addition to your Christmas menu plan. Smoked salmon’s always available to buy at the Anyfish shop and it’s always competitively priced too.


Stu’s Cheesy Anyfish Smoked Salmon Muffins, stuffed with cream cheese & dill.

(Stu uses cups rather than grams for ease here but if you don’t have a cup measure, just use a standard teacup).

INGREDIENTS: 3x cups self raising flour, 1x cup minced or finely chopped Anyfish smoked salmon, 1x finely chopped medium onion, 1x cup grated tasty cheese (Stu uses Devonshire red but a tasty Cheddar is perfect too - and you can buy either at the Anyfish fishmonger shop), 1x teaspoon baking power, zest of 1 lemon, 2x large eggs, 200ml milk (for a more luxurious touch, substitute half of the milk for cream or yogurt)

METHOD: Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the milk and eggs together (with an electric or hand mixer if possible to get a bit of air into it). Gently combine the milk and egg mix with the dry ingredients. Fold in carefully and do not over mix (don’t worry if it looks a bit lumpy!) The mix should be soft enough to spoon out but not so liquid it falls off the spoon. If it seems too dry - add a splash more milk.

Spoon the mixture into 24 paper muffin cases in a muffin tray (or you can use smaller cake case if you want to make them more bitesized). Stu uses 2 dessert spoons to distribute the mixture with minimal mess.

Bake your muffins in a pre heated oven @ 180c for 15 mins until nice and golden and well risen.

Allow to cool before filling, Stu uses cream cheese with fresh dill and the juice from the zested lemon. If you’re feeling super posh you could scoop out the top of the muffin with a teaspoon, pipe in your cream cheese and then perch the top back on.


When it comes to fish recipes, Stu is full of great ideas.

Pop into the shop for ingredients and tips as well as our great range of fresh fish, smoked fish, poultry and shellfish. We can prepare the fish for you too if you like so the cooking is as straightforward as possible. Just ask.

A brand new look for the Anyfish fishmonger shop!

Our Tiny Marketing Co

The Anyfish shop has been undergoing a make-over for sometime now (it certainly feels like a long while!)

We are now (drumroll please!) excited to say that we’re nearly finished. We think our Bishops Waltham fishmongers shop is looking fantastic - and well worth a visit!


We’ve been based alongside the main car park in Bishops Waltham for more years than we care to remember now but never before has our fishmonger shop front looked so smart and our interior so welcoming.


The front of the shop now has a smart new Anyfish sign, made from rustic wood and metal.

(The sign is the combined effort of a couple of brilliant local businesses - give us a shout if you'd like to know more). Now you can spot us from the other side of the car park, but we don’t stick out like a sore thumb. We’ve also added some characterful illustrations to our front windows, just to remind passers-by that we’re more than just a fishmonger - we run charter boat trips, have our own smokery and sell a selection of delicious deli items too.


We’ve still got some of our trademark blackboards outside the fish shop (partly so Pete still has the opportunity to air his latest views and grumbles!). It’s a good idea to keep a close eye on these boards because we update them with special offers and interesting new fish varieties as and when we have them in the shop.


Inside the Anyfish shop, one of the only things that’s the same is Stu!

We’ve had some tip-top new flooring laid down, a shiny new coat of paint and some glorious rustic wood panelling. There’s our fab wall mural to view and a space in the shop where you can have a quick sit-down and rifle through our recipe books if you’re feeling in need of inspiration.


The rustic blackboards in the fishmonger have been specially made (by a local business of course) and everything’s set up to show-off our fabulous range of fish to perfection.

Our new look is finished off by the snazzy stickers on our Anyfish home smoked salmon (and other home smoked products) and we’ve even got co-ordinating chill bags available to buy if you’d like to keep your purchases super cool ’til you get them home.


Our shop re-fit has been quite a long time coming but we’re pretty pleased with the results now.

We’d love to show you round (our shop, and our fish selection!) so please do pop in if you’re passing by.

We’re taking part in the gourmet food extravaganza which is Bishop’s Waltham Bites on the 7th October too, so if you’re coming along, we look forward to seeing you. If you fancy the idea, but don’t have tickets yet, head over here for more information.
