While the shop has been around since 1973, it changed its name from G & A Spink in spring 2013 when manager Michael Gazeley took the reins. He knows the business pretty well, having been working here since 1976, and is keeping the same format of half fishmonger, half deli for this and the second branch in Broughty Ferry. Much is made on-site, including quiche, flans, coleslaw and popular Arbroath smokie paté, which sells well with thick-cut oatcakes from local baker JM Bakeries. Cooked meats come from the nearby butcher, hot smoked salmon sides are kiln roasted locally, and there's a whole range of wet, smoked and shellfish.
This delicatessen and fishmonger started life in 1973 but was taken over by the manager in 2013. The popular range of fresh fish alongside the deli counter has remained, with local pies and bridies sourced from Nicolls and Mathews’ potted hough. The butchery counter offers black pudding, bacon, sausages and lots more. Curries, rissoles, sandwiches, breakfast rolls and other hot foods are also available to take away.
