    Not to be missed - Cherry on the Cake of a Brilliant Weekend.
    What an amazing little gem. Swallowfish is tucked in the quaint backstreets of Seahouses a couple of minutes' walk from the harbour. Me and my hungover dive buddies wandered into the unassuming front door of the obviously old and authentic smoke house on Sunday morning to the amazing smell of smoked seafood. Various cool pictures of celebs such as John Torode, Freddy Flintoff, & Robson Green visiting the place up in a little cranny in the corner. We were greeted by a friendly and professional young lady who gave us some of the history to the place and we purchased and were greeted by a friendly and professional young lady. Between us we purchased a mixture of smoked fish, mussels, scallops, prawns, & crab claws. The owner wandered out and said hello then we headed down to the harbour and tucked in. Blimey all of it was BANGIN! I spent under a fiver and know if we were in some knobby place down south you’d pay five times the amount. Definitely on our list when back in Seahouses next year. We’re gonna grab fresh bread, a couple of bottles of local ale to go along with our hall and make it a proper banquet.

    The absolute best quality!
    I had smoked salmon, haddock and kippers delivered (to London). They arrived perfectly packed and on time. And they are absolutely delicious! I poached the haddock in water for a couple of minutes - so simple but the best i’ve ever tasted.

    Best crab bun ever
    Had researched places to go in Seahouses before we went and this kept coming up as a hidden gem. We were not disappointed. Both decided to have crab in a bun. What a treat - beautiful crabmeat. Sat eating them overlooking the harbour just perfect. Fish in the shop looked amazing. Would highly recommend.

    Well worth a visit
    Well worth a visit, always visit when up this way on holiday. Never disappoints. Had a yummy dressed crab, lindisfarne oysters and kippers all delicious. Good choice in shop. Not dog friendly which is fine, a little nook outside would be good, crab net was useful to try dog lead too

Hidden gem in Seahouses. Fantastic family run business. Fanastic selection of fish but they smoke their own fish. Such a selection of fresh fish hard to chose which to have. The staff are happy to vacuum pack the fish for you. Also a frozen section with ready meals and fish. They also have homemade pate’s made by themselves.
Staff very friendly and are happy to offer helping on the cooking of fish.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area you won’t be sorry.

Excellent, if only I had a shop like this close by. All of the fish looked fresh and lovely. We had a lovely crab bap, a dressed crab, crab claws and packs of kipper fillets. We had the kippe4s for tea tonight and they were lovely. The service from the shop was excellent. Highly recommended

We bought smoked mussels (green-lipped and not), smoked prawns, and some smoked salmon (not the usual type you can buy at the supermarket, but lightly smoked). The big mussels were moist and delicious. The smoked prawns were a new thing and we loved them. We had the salmon as is for dinner with some potatoes – wonderful!
Whilst there, we bought hot kippers in rolls and ate them as we walked around Seahouses. Delicious!
This place is the only reason I would go back to Seahouses.

The best tasting, freshest fish and prawns I've ever had the pleasure of eating. The lady who served us made sure all our questions were answered. On our next trip this will be our first stop to buy more fish.

Just received another delivery of crab meat, we live in Pembrokeshire on the coast but this is the best picked crab in the country.
So we have enjoyed the best crab tagliatelle ever, Giorgio Locatelli would be proud.

Best kippers I have ever had - by far.
Also bought fresh hake which was also very good. Prices reasonable, quality excellent. Will be making a beeline for this place when we visit the area again for more kippers!
