The humble British chippy has had a bit of a makeover recently and among the best of this new generation of fish and chip restaurants in Oliver’s in London’s Belsize Park. Proudly cosy, seating just a few lucky guests, this bustling wee dining room is just packed with character reminiscent of mid-century British style, a time which could be considered the heyday of the fish supper. So you’ll find brick tiling, aluminum seating, and scrubbed wood tables alongside black and white flooring and the all important glass bottles of Heinz ketchup cosied up to salt and vinegar dispensers. Blending traditional fish and chips with Mediterranean seafood dishes, Oliver’s is dedicated to freshness and quality with ingredients very carefully sourced for every creation, from hearty main meals to the smaller snacks available throughout the day. Booking in advance is highly recommended to guarantee a spot in this charming restaurant growing in popularity every day.

My fish and chips ordered I was told I had a 7 minute wait (ooh such an exact time, I...more
I had my annual fish and chips 8 Feb 14. The fish was fresh, properly fried and nice, as the the people working there. The tartar sauce is lovely.more
They have a stand at one of the food markets in Camden. While I walked around the entire place, feeling like it was a United Nations food bazaar, I kept coming back to Oliver's. Fortunately I was with someone else who was opening to sharing.
The fish and chips in the cone were fantastic. I mean, the batter was great, not overly oily, the fish was nice, and the chips perfect. This was the best...more
Not changing my rating, but I did go back last night with a small group and the service was a lot better. I tried the matzah meal batter, two of us had the regular batter, and one person ordered the grilled yellowfin tuna steak, rare. We shared the dipping trio, chips, coleslaw, and mushy peas.
The matzah meal isnt something I'd order again as it was denser than I'd like but, to be fair, I...more
