THE ISLE OF MAN STEAM PACKET COMPANY HISTORY
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is the oldest continually operating passenger shipping company in the world, having began operations in 1830.
THE ISLE OF MAN BEFORE THE STEAM PACKET COMPANY
Prior to 1830, there were other shipping companies serving the Isle of Man, before the Steam Packet Company was formed. The smuggling trade (causing considerable loss to the British Revenue) led to the Crown purchasing the Isle of Man from the Atholl family in 1765 and the Redcoats moved in. Two years after this, Westminster organized a weekly packet boat service between Douglas and Whitehaven, thereby providing a lifeline to the Garrison on the Isle of Man.

The Fish House is the brainchild of Patrick Croft who is probably the Isle of Manís most famous fishmonger! Patrick has always had an interest in the sea, having lived in Port Erin and Port St Mary in the south of the island most of his life. He has worked for over 20 years as a fishmonger and has won numerous awards for his fish filleting skills.
Patrick has always had a passion for provenance, high quality local seafood and is a pretty mean cook as well! With all this combined he thought why not open somewhere in his home village and so the Fish House was born.
The Fish House is relaxed sort of place where you can buy fresh local seafood including the famous Isle of Man Queenies. If you want to take more time out you sit in the diner area and enjoy something freshly prepared from Patricks very own menu which is served all day. If you want to grab something on the move you can as he also offers a convenient take away service selling freshly made sandwiches and baps to go.
The Fish House is in the heart of Port St Mary located on the corner of Station Road and The Promenade. Car Parking is free and can be found at the rear of the property just opposite the village Town Hall. There is a bus stop almost opposite on the main road into Port St Mary and we are only five minutes walk from the steam train stop at Port St Mary train station.
