A well-loved Carlisle fishmonger has been nominated for another national award.

Bells fishmongers in Carlisle have been nominated as a finalist in the ‘Fishmongers of the Year’ award by the National Federation of Fishmongers.

Bells are up against fishmongers across the country including the Isle of Man.

The Carlisle fishmongers have been trading in the city since the 1970s and are viewed as a Carlisle institution with hundreds of loyal customers.

Being so close to the Scottish border enables Bells to source from Scotland, England and the Shetland Islands to bring you the best Shetland Mussels and fish in the UK.

In a statement on social media, Bells thanked its customers for their ‘continued, fiercely loyal support’.

Proud to announce we've made it the National Federation of Fishmongers Fishmongers of the year finalists,” said Bells.
