Enjoy a taste of the British seaside this summer without even leaving the capital. Fish Market’s outdoor terrace reopens today 1 May with a brand new beach inspired menu served from the venue’s crustacea bar and compiled by head chef Barry Macmillan.

Tongue in cheek menu highlights include Smoked haddock Scotch egg, Fish finger sandwich with tartare sauce, Jelly and ice cream, Knickerbocker glories and nostalgic flavoured sundaes including Banoffee, Strawberry and Chocolate.  But if you must rush back to the office, simply pick up a portion of takeaway fish goujons and chips to go. Fish Market sources the freshest fish and shellfish from the British Isles.

Light bites are also available alongside Champagne or wine from the 80 bin list which focuses on white wine in particular from classic English varieties to those from around the globe including South Africa, Chile and Australia.  All producers have been carefully selected for their gastronomic or convivial character.

Fish Market is located inside the city’s oldest surviving warehouse, The Old Bengal Warehouse which was originally built by the East India Company between 1768 and 1771 to store spices, tea, cigars and port and was immortalised in a poem by John Masefield that described it as holding "the wealth of the world and London's power." 

A welcome respite from the offices of the Square Mile, the sun-filled terrace can seat up to 40 guests. Don't forget your bucket and spade.
