Smoked salmon – cured in Crouch End

Walter Purkis smoked salmon sold through our shops is smoked in the century old smoke house at the rear of the Crouch End Shop. In fact it is the oldest working fish smokehouse in London using nothing but natural wood (with no chemicals added).  We cure using traditional skills and recipes that have been handed down through the Purkis family for at least six generations. What you see on our counters are truly local food products. See more about our smokehouse here >>

All our smoked salmon is prepared by hand and can be purchased in packs or as unsliced whole sides
