Latimer’s Seafood is widely regarded as the best fishmongers in the area, and the best plaice to buy seafood you can find.
We are an independent family run fishmongers that pride ourselves on the quality and freshness of our fish and shellfish. We are utterly thrilled to have been awarded the national accolade of “Fishmonger of the Year 2015” by the prestigious Farm Shop and Deli Awards
Robert Latimer (owner) is self taught at the art of fishmongering, he has had a passion for all things fishy since he was a kid – lobstering on the beach right in front of the where his seafood deli is now! His last job before starting his fishmongers in Whitburn was as a lone creel fisherman working off the small Scottish island of Luing.
Robert felt it was such a shame that no one was selling his beautiful crabs, lobsters, langoustines and dive caught scallops in the UK and decided to set up on his own as an independent fishmonger. Using all the contacts and friends he had made through out his career is how he manages to stay one step ahead of his competitors when it comes to getting the best and freshest seafood into his counter and ultimately into your shopping bag.
