Birthday Celebrations For Poisson
Local fishmonger is a year old
A local couple who gave up their careers in the media to run a fish shop are celebrating their first year in business.
Simon and Katie Osborne opened Poisson Fresh Fish on Northfields Avenue, last December. Katie says:
'' As a small business we have survived our first year despite the current economic climate and it seems fresh fish is still on people's shopping lists. It's been hard work but we feel we are true asset to the community now and have met a real need on the high street.''
Poisson sells a huge variety of fresh fish, most of which is caught in British waters and Simon prides himself on selecting only the best quality. He buys it directly from Newlyn Harbour in Cornwall and from Billingsgate fish market in Canary Wharf.
From sardines to seabass, mackerel to monkfish and cockles to cuttlefish, the shop also boasts a small delicatessen which is stocked full of sauces and fish accompaniments.
The past year has seen the business expand and grow, with the shop’s homemade fish pies and fishcakes becoming a firm favourite among customers.
More recently, Simon has launched the Oyster Lovers’ gift box and a range of hampers. Luxury seafood platters have also been a hit.
Customers can also hire fish kettles to cook their own whole salmon and Simon is always available to offer help and advice on how to prepare and cook the fish.
He says: “Customers at Poisson have been delighted with the range of produce I stock in the shop and I can get hold of pretty much anything I am asked for, as long as I am given 24 hours notice, I am passionate about what I do and customer satisfaction is my top priority.”
To mark the birthday, customers shopping on Wednesday 1st December will get 20% off.
