WELCOME TO RIDLEY'S FISH & GAME


Appearinging at the New Edinburgh Grassmarket Saturday Market and the Stockbridge Sunday Market.

"Whether fresh from the sea, river, countryside or kitchen, Ridley's provide a quality second to none."

Every now and again a business emerges that just does it well. Ridley's Fish and Game is dedicated to achieving the very highest standards. Quality and freshness really do count

It also requires a lot of skill to handle such a wide diversity of foods. Ridley's expert team and knowledgable, and hugely experienced, management achieve that day in day out.

Based at Acomb near Hexham, Northumberland, Ridley's are happy to give a complete guarantee of quality and freshness - because you will always receive the highest standards.

We make all of our food to our own recipies using our own produce with a selection of local fresh ingredients including milk from the pedigree dairy in Slaley and free range eggs from Matfen and Haydon Bridge, all small local producers.

All our Homemade Fayre products are hand made and fresh, changing weekly and more importantly changing with the seasons, truly the best at the time.

All our game is from Northumberland, usually within a 15 mile radius of our unit in Acomb.

All you have to do is enjoy! Perhaps that's why it's always a sell out when we go to Borough Morket in London - the top "foodies" market in the country.

Ridley’s Fish and Game is a specialist retailer, wholesale supplier to the trade and producer of top quality fresh fish, seafood, poultry, wild local game and delicious homemade foods.

"Not your average kettle of fish" - Top Quality Seafood, Poultry and Game
Ridley's is based at Acomb, near Hexham in Northumberland and stocks an excellent range of top quality seasonal, fresh fish, seafood, poultry and local wild game.

Recommended by Rick Stein, this family-run concern was established in 1991 and has quickly become known for outstanding quality and service. The business actually dates back to 1914. Ridley's bought the former Murray's Fish & Game on Battehill in Hexham from Ronnie Murray in 1991 and devloped this business into today's Ridley's Fish & Game.

GREAT BRITISH MENU - DAVID RIDLEY SAVES THE DAY WITH LAST MINUTE MACKEREL!

Ridley's Fish and Game supplied the mackerel for the Great British Menu Banquet Fish Course in the presence of HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Due to inclement weather it was not posssible to catch any Mackerel on the North East coast as planned. However, David Rdiley managed to save the day with line caught mackerel he caught off the coast of Cornwall at the very last minute.
Michelin-starred chef Kenny Atkinson won the place to cook the fish course for the Great British Menu Banquet. Kenny, who won the Hotel Chef of the Year recently, is at Rockliffe Hall, a newly-created luxury hotel, golf and spa development in Hurworth, County Durham, in December 2009. Congratulations, best wishes and thanks to Kenny from all at Ridley's Fish and Game!

"Save a Red - Eat a Grey!"
The Red Squirrel is one of the UK's most charming and threatened indigenous animals. The problem is caused by the ever-expanding population of Grey Squirrels who invaded from America.

It turns out Grey Squirrels are really delicious to eat.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage programme showed how to cook them and how tasty they are. Ridley's have supplied lots of grey squirrels - many to top local restaurants. This is helping to save the hard-pressed reds.

Northern Red Squirrels
Northern Red Squirrels is an umbrella group networking local groups across the north of England. Our primary focus is to increase the population range of the red squirrel in order to save it from extinction in the UK. We work very closely with the new Red Squirrels Northern England Project.

RIDLEY'S TRULY LOCAL ROE DEER VENISON

Ridley's Fish & Game venison is local, fully-traceable, fresh, prepared and butchered by ourselves at our unit in Acomb, near Hexham, Northumberland. Our Venison is truly local roe deer from the immediate area. That's why we won a three star gold award last year for our Venison Striploin and hope to follow it up with something this year. The entries are now being taken for the Taste Awards and we are choosing our products to send away.
