V Mattacks is Leigh-on-sea’s premier traditional fishmonger. Located at 44 Elm Road for over a century, we continue to source the very best in fresh, wet, and smoked fish for our loyal clientele across Essex. Over the decades we’ve cultivated relationships with Britain’s best suppliers and fishermen, so there’s no reason you can’t expect the same quality in your kitchen as you find in your favourite restaurant.
With new stock delivered daily from all over the UK, you can be sure everything we sell is going to be in season and sustainably fished. We have an extensive selection of white fish, oily fish, prime fish, and shellfish so you’ll have plenty of choices to make a meal out of.
Thanks to the unique way we source our fish, our selection goes beyond your ordinary salmon or mackerel. Our daily catch means all sorts of unique and unusual fish find their way to our shelves. If you’ve never heard of a John Dory or Ray’s Bream before, just pop in and ask. We’ll always have something you won’t expect to see.
V Mattacks is equipped to prepare your fish however you need it. Our staff are happy to fillet, scale, or gut your purchase ready to take home. Or if you’re in a rush we’ll always make you something to go. Our hot-smoked mackerel or locally-caught cockles are perfect to enjoy during a walk of Leigh’s historic seafront.
So if you’re in the area please do drop by. We’re open Eight till Five, Tuesday through Saturday. If you have any special requests or want to check our availability please feel free to call ahead on 01702 478932. Just let us know what you’re looking for and how you like it prepared, and we will do our best to have it ready for pick up that very same day.
