James Knight reviews

Nothing like Chalmers & Gray, whose staff were unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable. By contrast, James Knight staff told me there was no such thing as wild brown trout, that I was mistaken. They did not know what sea trout was either...

What a selection of the freshest fish. Very friendly, considering I am not very good at cooking fish. The result was a fantastic chunky fish pie. Yum!

I think James Knight are one of the best fish suppliers around. You pay for the pure quality of the fish you get, and there's such a great selection. I'm very impressed with the outlet they have in Selfridges, not just for the quality of the fish but also the huge sashimi range which they have recently introduced and for the quality of service you receive.

Some of the other reviewers must be shareholders or employees. I remember James Knight as a wholesaler with a great shop in Shepherds Market; it is far from that now. Chalmers and Grey was a far better shop and continued the tradition of quality and service almost lost when Blagdens ceased trading in Marylebone. The prices are insane and the quality of fish very variable. The service is among the worst I have ever encountered. Fishworks may not have the variety but there is more interest, warmth and joy for what they do. With shops like James Knight supposedly leading the way, the supermarkets have nothing to worry about.

The salmon is the best - much better than any supermarket, including Sainsbury's.

Excellent fish and great service, best I have had in London. If only they had this in SW18. Keep up the good work.

Unbeatable in London. But you pay through the nose.

As per the two previous reviews, the quality of the fish is excellent. But it simply matches the price you pay and the service is appalling.

Best we've seen in London, and we moved from the coast of Massachusetts in the States where we bought fish from the boats. Great selection, always fresh and the service is first rate.

Not the cheapest, but the fish is first-rate & always very fresh. Good knowledgeable service.
