For about two decades this was an Eating House with the proprietor being Mr John Mills. He was still running his eating house at the age of 72 in 1881. The next occupier was a wheelwright and coachbuilder- John Tombs. For a while I believe the building was unoccupied.
For almost 60 years this was the business of the Fletcher family. Charles Frederick Fletcher had a business in Great Norwood Street and moved his business to this property in 1907. The shop continued in the name of Fletcher when Charles’ son Maurice joined the business, continuing here until the mid 1960s.
The next fishmonger to occupy these premises was F W Moody Ltd who where here until the late 1970s. In 1980 Keith Brittan named the shop Ocean Fayre and sold takeaway fish and chips. In 1998 the shop underwent refurbishment and expanded its menu to include chicken and vegetarian dishes.
