If you were unable to get a decent piece of fish in a restaurant attached to a top-quality fishmongers then it would be a poor show but, thankfully, the Easy Fish Company take its job seriously. Apart from gigantic portions of super-fresh fried cod and thick chips, you might find stylishly presented pan-fried John Dory with saffron potatoes, samphire and shellfish bisque or sesame-crusted tuna accompanied by miso- and soy-glazed vegetables, crispy noodles and Malaysian curry sauce. Shellfish sharing platters (including lobster, mussels and tiger prawns) are deliciously formidable. There's a second branch in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
