This is the quintessential British fish-and-chips shop.
They offer several different kinds of fish that are skillfully fried. Portions are large and very good value for the money. Every time I am in London I seek this place out for a good meal. I enjoy the plaice, haddock, or cod depending on my mood. The fryers really do know their craft!
