e 2At the Mersea Island Fish Bar cooking fresh fish and chips to perfection is not our only talent! You can take advantage of our Fresh Fish Bar to purchase a wide selection of the highest quality fresh fish available locally.

We have traditional cod, haddock and skate as well as freshly prepared scallops, lobster and crab. In addition, our bar also stocks peeled and shell-on prawns, cockles, mussels, roll-mops, mackerel and crayfish. This is just a sample selection of what we have available. As our fish is fresh, availability of varieties of fish changes depending on the season. We would be happy to advise on what fish we have in stock and what is best this season.

The team at Mersea Island Fish Bar have a wealth of knowledge which we are happy to share. So if you wish to try something new, want a new recipe from your usual cooking choice or are planning a special dinner and want to show off your culinary skills we would be happy to advise how to prepare and cook your chosen fresh fish or shellfish to bring out the flavour to its very best.
