There has been a Griggs at Hythe beach for over 170 years and we are proud to carry on that tradition. We are fishmongers based by the seashore in Hythe. We supply the finest quality fish to all our customers direct from our shop or via our wholesale delivery to chefs all over Kent. We pride ourselves on selling fish landed from boats that pull up on the shore right by the fishmongers counter as well as further afield. The fish counter itself is based inside a beautifully preserved old lifeboat station.
You can buy fresh fish, a range of smoked fish and deli products from pates to potted shrimp. Our fully trained team smoke our own fish on the premises as well as filleting and preparing the wide array of fresh fish that you will find on the counter.
If you are feeling peckish why not enjoy freshly cooked fish to eat outside overlooking the sea. From a kipper in a bun and fish and chips to mackerel escabeche – there’s something for everyone. Brunch on the beach is a must.
Our experienced fishmongers are happy to talk you through the different fish available, cooking techniques and recipe ideas. We welcome questions and are always happy to help.
