Our fish

We get the majority of our fish from straight off the Quayside market at Looe. Because of the tidal nature of the Looe estuary, our small boats cannot stay at sea long, and must cycle between the fishing grounds and harbour quickly, giving us the finest and freshest fish in the UK.

This fleet regularly returns local cod, mackerel, gurnard, lemon sole, hake, whiting, bass, plaice and red mullet. Much of this fish is caught by line, and all of it is caught using traditional, sustainable fishing techniques.

Our shellfish

The Cornish coast and estuaries are rich with a delicious selection of shellfish, and we have some superb suppliers keeping our shelves groaning with the pick of the crop.

We've got seasonal Cornish lobsters and brown crabs, including unpasteurised picked meats and dressed shellfish. We have wonderful local scallops, prawns and shrimp, and our rope-grown Fowey mussels are delicious with a white wine and garlic sauce. We also have seasonal oysters and razor clams. Get in touch to find out what's on the menu today!


We have some of the finest and most healthy stocks of fish and shellfish in our waters, and at Pengelly's we are proud to support fishing and aquaculture practices which sustain these stocks.

Many of our fish bear the Seafood Cornwall sustainability tags, showing that they were line caught and allowing you to track each fish you buy to the fishing grounds it was caught in, and the vessel which caught them.

This is key to our policy of sourcing the finest and most sustainable fish and shellfish possible.

Our History

For close to a century, the Pengelly family have been involved in the Looe fishing industry either as captains or hands on the dayboat fleet, or as fishmongers in and around the town.

Today the two Pengelly sisters manage and run the Looe and Liskeard shops, keeping up the traditions and standards that has made the name "Pengelly" synonymous with the highest quality Cornish seafood, supplying fish-lovers and restauranteurs across the globe.

Online shop

You can now order some of our great fresh fish, smoked fish and shellfish online.

Our new online shop allows your to place orders on a variety of products, check out using debit / credit card, or Paypal account, and receive your order within 24 hours delivered by courier in chilled packaging so it's even fresher than picking it up in the supermarket!

Mary Portas' Queen of shops, and the Lipsmacking Liskeard project.

In an attempt to save our high streets from extinction, the Prime Minister turned to retail guru Mary Portas to prepare a report offering solutions. The final suggestion in Mary’s report was to pilot her ideas, and the government have decided to give it a go.

Liskeard Fore Street was one of the pilot areas, and Pengelly's was one of the three high street shops given the Mary Portas treatment. This culminated in the Lipsmacking Liskeard project, combining the efforts of the three local produce shops to bring customers back to Liskeard Fore Street.

The show airs on the 22nd May, 9pm on Channel 4.
