Trawler Trash Opens in Islington

Trawler Trash is a new, Islington seafood restaurant making the most of the lesser known treasures of the sea, the fish that often get forgotten, like the old bargain CD section you use to get in Woolsworth where you’d find a gem, if you will. Just because it is the so-called ‘trash’ doesn’t mean that you won’t be served the best, they’ll only be serving fresh fish delivered that day (that’s why it’s closed on Monday as the trawler men don’t work then) except rather than ‘traditional’ catches you’ll find the likes of pilchards, coley, sprat, grey mullet and cray […]
