Seafood
Designed for seafood lovers – Saltwater Fish Company, situated in Fenwick Foodhall, operates as both a Fish Bar and Fishmonger with a ‘we cook what we sell, we sell what we cook’ philosophy. There’s no fuss – just a passion for seafood, simple yet creative cooking and friendly service.

With counter seating for 19 people and an open kitchen our Fish Bar offers casual seafood dining – we’re talking oysters from different beds, small dishes to delight, large plates to satisfy, French-style Fruits de Mer Platters to share and a blackboard full of daily specials. Champagnes and wines, too, of course – all fish friendly.

At our Fishmonger’s counter it’s all rather simple. We sell the finest selection of seasonal fish and shellfish whilst sharing tips and recipes and our well-stocked wet fish counter provides the raw materials for our regularly changing menus.

We visited during the evening and enjoyed good seafood, service, wine selection and a good choice of dishes. Being in a department store it lacks the ambience one might experience in a restaurant but that would not deter us from going again. It has a relaxed, quality 'vibe.

Definitely recommend this. It was recommended to me just the day before so I count myself very lucky to get two bar stools when I wanted to eat by booking online at dawn. The food exceeded my expectations, the fixed price menu had super choices and I could have happily ordered any of the starters or mains. My mackerel pate was outstanding and salmon superb. Too full for a dessert but I had hoped to! Very friendly, helpful service, cannot fault the Saltwater Fish Company and will certainly return.

Made a booking for Saturday 09/11/19 and despite of asking for usual sitting area the man who attended us (not the usual pleasant lady) refused to accommodate us other than in a v busy seat at the entrance. A big disappointment on one of our fav restaurants. Result, booking cancelled and moved to a more accommodating restaurant. Hugely disappointed!!

A "go to" destination for excellent food, set in the bustle of Fenwick's food hall. Delightful fish and well prepared and cooked to order as you watch. Recommended.

Great food and nice atmosphere in the food hall, which was fun to wander around while we were waiting for our table. Good deals on for 2 or 3 courses and nicely attentive staff waiting on

A really nice place to eat. We enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the kitchen in action. The hake was fabulous but the fruits de mer less so. It was described as having lobster, langoustines and cockles but none of these were present. Instead lots and lots of cooked mussels, which are lovely when hot in garlic and white wine but don’t work as well cold. The king prawns, although big on size were not big on taste - small cold water shell-on prawns would have been so much better. All that said, we still had a great time.

I was so disappointed to find that I had booked on line - when I arrived I was seated as a pair facing the wall which I did not really like - there were 8 empty seats at the main counter - the waiter told me they were reserved - on as a party of 3 and two parties of two. I asked as we had arrived before the other two parties of two if we could take their seats and they be allocated ours - he said no - this was not possible with barely any explanation. I then said that we did not wish to eat in that spot and would go elsewhere - the waiter could not of cared less - FABULOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE NOT!!!!!
I did complain to the manager and to be honest we are good customers spending an average of £150 for lunch if you can afford to loose us then so be it
