Visited for our first taste of an Arbroath smokie and was not disappointed. The kind gentleman doing the smoking let us see the fire pit and how they were smoked. The fish was still warm and delicious.

Whereas most of the other "smoky shops" in town have modern, traditional shop fronts, th S one is situated up a ginnel and is almost rough and ready looking. What's important however is the quality of the fish, and this place is top notch.

Great Quality Fish
Sep 2017 • Couples
I manage to get to Arbroath a few times in the year and when I do I head for this place. Generally by the time I get here my freezer is low on fish so I take the chance to stock up. I could rave about the different types of delicious fish but I particularly enjoy the natural smoked haddock and of course the world famous Arbroath Smokie. As a family we've been coming here for years and will continue to do so for years to come. Its great watching the fish being smoked.

If I am close to here I have to take home a fix of smokies & salmon. Been coming her for longer than I care to remember.If you love fish don't miss it. If you are lucky you will get a smoke when it is still warm.Don't take it home take a seat in the yard & enjoy.

Delicious hot smoked salmon
May 2017 • Family
My parents were introduced to this place over 40 years ago & we still return regularly, placing orders for ourselves & friends from home in Glasgow. Although smokies are a popular order I can't get enough of the hot smoked salmon which is delicious & great value! Can't recommend this place highly enough, make sure u visit & enjoy.

First visit 10 years ago

We have been visiting or buying from M&M Spink for the past ten years, on one visit we saw Mr Spink and Rick Stein's photo as they sat side by side on his bench. He is one of Rick's Local Hero's. As for the food, I have tried most of the products on their list and I have never had a mediocre product, everything has been of superlative quality. I remember tasting my first bite of his smoked salmon (I was not a fan), it was first class. The skin was crunchy and the flesh was so melt in the mouth delicious, I was a convert, don't go to Arbroath without visiting the hardest working man there.

A must do if in Arbroath

A trip to Arbroath is a must for any foodie. Delicious smoked haddock on offer at a good price and in a cute setting down by the marina.

First ever Smoky :)
Jul 2015 • Couples
Walking past the harbour in Arbroath with my husband, sister and her fiancé, we spotted M & M Spink Arbroath Smokies. As my husband lifted his camera to take a picture he was met with the sight of the gentleman posing with his Smokies for him. We decided here would be the place to try our first Arbroath Smoky. The old man invited us to the back of his smoke house where he told us to get our cameras ready. He opened the smoker and told us to look in and take pictures... Amazing to see. Really enjoyed my first ever smoky and would definitely visit again when we come back this way.

Incredible Smokies by one of the best characters in Scotland
Jun 2015 • Couples
We called M&M Spink on a Saturday while we were still a distance out during a tour of Scotland, knowing that we would only be able to arrive there just after closing time. On the other end of the line was a man with a very, very thick Scottish accent - so thick that my Canadian ears couldn't pick up anything he was saying. I passed the phone on to my girlfriend from the UK, and she was able to understand that he had just finished a fresh batch and that he'd stay open for us. He offered us directions, and we ended up in his kitchen an hour later. He showed us how to de-bone a fish, told us tales of how he was on the BBC and how he's been in the business (along with some of his children) for over 50 years. We ate some fish on the docks, and turned some into Cullen Skink (a soup superior to clam chowder). Also bought the best smoked salmon I've ever had.
