This is an old school fish place. It still has a bunch of 60s fixtures in here. And if it was in L.A. it would have a "Film location available" sign placed somewhere. It's really kitsch or whatever that would be in England. The owner's are the third pair of hands to run this place. I do wonder does it take three blokes to run this small shop?

We ordered fish and chips of course. We skipped on... more

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!

Inside is clean, tidy, and vintage. Formica obviously... more

As other reviewers pointed out: this is traditional fish & try shop, they are good at what they are doing. This is first time I tried English style fish & fry, they taste bland, even with ketchup, salt & pepper. Anyway, Fish was fresh, fry was crispy. more

Really great spot. Delicious batter, moist flaky fish and great chips! The flavor you get from frying in beef fat is worth a special trip. Also, I ate an entire meal for less than just the fish at many of the more touristy places I've seen. You can even get to go in paper if you feel a need for nostalgia. more

Portions are huge. Tried mushy peas for the first time here, which is a pretty big thing in London and it was interesting. It wasn't amazing but it's something worth a try if you're in London. I really liked the chips. Unfortunately you have to pay for tartar sauce? 40p a pack. It's a small little place but that's where I hear you get the best fish and chips! more
