The Troutlet, in Easton Lane, will also sell fresh and smoked trout as whole fish and fillets. It will be open weekly from October 5, on Thursdays and Fridays between 12pm and 4pm. There is plenty of free car parking and good disabled access.

Managing director Richard Butler said: “Our customers have been asking us to open a shop for ages and we are excited to be bringing them the Troutlet. As proud members of Hampshire Fare, we are also hoping to be selling products from other local producers in the Troutlet soon.”
