It has been 20 years since friends Ian Mayo and Tony Wood opened the doors of Cheshire Fish in Macclesfield. And two decades on, it is still as popular as ever. It is hardly surprising as fish is sourced from across the country from some of the best fishermen in Cornwall, Grimsby, Aberdeen and Fleetwood and from abroad too.

Ian’s brother, Neil Mayo, the shop’s manager said: ‘We are very lucky to be able to get fish from some of the best people.

‘And it’s all very fresh. The fish will be with us within 18 – 24 hours of it being caught. This is something we’re very proud of.’

And rightly so. The quality of the fish is so high that customers travel from across Cheshire and Manchester and they also have a loyal local customer base. Their efforts were also awarded last year when Cheshire Fish was named Independent Retailer of the Year at Cheshire Life’s Food & Drink Awards.

‘People know they are getting a good service with us as well as great fish,’ said Neil. ‘We’re different to supermarkets. We don’t have sell by date or days we have to reduce items. Our products aren’t pre-packed. If something isn’t good enough, it goes in the bin.

‘We will do anything for our customers. We’re all trained in the best ways to cook certain fish so we can advise people who come in here. It’s important to us to give a good service. They are long days – I am up at 5am each day – but it is so worth it.’ =
