Nicky McLoughlin, a fisherman like generations of his family before him, opened his shop on the West Pier in 1961 to supply the local community with the best of the fresh catch. Soon joined by his brother John and cousin Joey, they added the Open Fire Smokehouse, so they could smoke the finest salmon to perfection over a perpetually glowing fire of Irish oak.
Today, we remain a proudly independent family business: here on the West Pier, that oak fire still smouldersand our lively shop is much the same as ever. Nicky’s son Martin – who started helping out at 9 years of age, standing on a fish box to see over the counter – is now at the helm, helped by brother Kevin and brother-in-law Brian, along with the third generation.
