J Earl Seafood - Amazing local fishmongers. Local, fresher than fresh fish. Run from a private residence on the way down to Chapel Porth Beach. Part of it's charm is it's slightly ramshackle appearance & ad hoc opening hours. Usually Thursday - Sunday, depending on the weather & catch. Fresh lobsters, crab, mussels & sea bass are our summer favourites.
