I'm a bit torn on this one. We ordered two dishes - fried cod and scampi - and an order of chips. Figured we couldn't go wrong with that.

The cod was good. Borderline "very good". The batter was crisp, light, had a nice flavour, and more importantly remained fairly crisp even towards the end of the meal when it cooled down.

A welcomed addition to Upper street, The Fish & Chip Shop has been quietly holding it's own for a bit over a year now. On a Thursday night, we found the place to be busy but not heaving, which for me is perfect. Without reservations, we sat at the back bar which was comfortable enough and out of the way.
