|Time for the last catch of puns. After which there will be no fish left in the sea.|

|Hi TOB - yes, Howard de Walden have done a good job with the new(ish) Moxon Street food retailers and generally around the high street. Blagdens had managed to persuade the family to stay in the business (they probably weren't much good at stockbroking!), survived Waitrose opening down the road and the congestion charge, but Fishworks finished them off. As you suggest, reopening something similar just wouldn't be viable.|
|ironic if loch fyne get the restuarants, seafood and fishmongering is still viable
or somebody might buy the company for a squid.|
|Well, I hesitate to say 'I told you so...'; but I told you so...
Verulamium, if the Marylebone site is owned by the Howard de Walden Estate, there's every chance they will look for another (better quality) foodie tenant, but the real problem is more that young people don't want to do jobs like fishmongering. And I say that as someone whose family once owned a fishmongers, which none of us wanted to join after school or university.|
|What took them so long?
Now can they close down their Marylebone High Street branch, and can we have back the proper established fishmongers that they drove out of business? Ah no, of course not...|

|Looks like they've had their Chips and Battered investors have been done like a Kipper. ;-))|
|Hmmm, things starting to look distinctly fishy. Looks like all the punsmiths on this thread are about to be made redundant.|
|I was thinking it looked pretty dreadful, actually. Net assets almost wiped out; reviews of restaurants not so flattering (see http://www.london-eating.co.uk/33859.htm and http://www.london-eating.co.uk/6851.htm for example), must be operating on a knife-edge by now with £2.5m of trade & other receiveables plus assets held for sale supporting £5.2m of debt, trade payables & liabilities of business held for sale. Wouldn't want to be their bankers, with discretionary expenditure under pressure and possibly fewer people eating out over next 12 months.|
|Quite positive statements in the final results today.
Although there are large write offs,it looks as though the under performing side of the business is being kept under control and closed down or sold.
They have managed to reduce borrowings.
The new format at swallow street can be tweaked to perfection whilst market conditions are poor. Any new rollout would require more equity raising. The directors say that the bank is happy at present presumably on regular reviews.|
|Expect some bad news in this sector which may affect a number of quoted chains - I hear that at least one very well known restaurant group has not been paying key suppliers for the last 2-3 months and is struggling, a failure there will be very bad for sentiment generally.|
|Those shellfish MMs are really leaving shareholders floundering.|
|Down again today and not looking good - 1.25p bid and someone dumped their holding at that level, so the MMs are presumably not short of stock.|
|Doubtless investors will feel like they have been rogered with a fishfork|
|1 normal fish and chip shop down the road from the Marylebone High Street branch does far better fish too....at half the price.|
|bail out off this pile of poo!! what i here the management . do not care about shareholders and have not got a clue. its going bust. 10 normal fish and chip shops would make more money than this.|
|you have to point your fish finger at the management. Well and truely kippered shareholder value. Dont want to carp on about it though ;0)|
|Down 32% today, admittedly that's just a penny off, but....|
