I cannot believe that I have never been here despite it being only 5 mins walk from Marylebone Station. Very attentive and professional waitresses. Menus and drinks orders dealt with immediately. Orders again taken promptly and politely. Starters of Garlic prawns just wonderful. The halloumi cheese went down a treat. A main of grilled Rock Salmon and new potatoes was... More

I've been using this chippy since the 1980s and it is unrivalled. If you want the best fish and chips in London visit the Sea Shell – just a short walk from Marylebone Station. And the Globe pub on the opposite corner is good too!

A queue starts evenings from 7pm with hungry cab drivers parking their black cabs next to this dinner style take away restaurant. Great fried food at what for London is still a good price, stumpy style large chips with good choice of fried fish. Hectic but fast service from the young behind the counter team, always busy.

I walk from the Edgware Road area to Marylebone station every week evening and therefore sometimes pop in for a fish and chip treat. I genuinely didn't realise that there was a sit down area other than outside - inside there seems to be counters with an absence of stools so one has to stand to eat in - with... More

Hi Dan! Many thanks for your feedback. We're delighted to hear you're a big fan of the chips! Indeed we do have a sit down restaurant, as well as the takeaway. For that reason i suppose we like to keep the takeaway part as more a grab & go, and allow customers to sit back and relax in the main... More

I usually find fish and chips tasteless and either over fried or soggy with chips that are nothing worth discussing and tarter sauce that I never touch. I was THRILLED to visit the Seashell after multiple recommendations from friends. The fish was fresh and the panko crusted goujons were FANTASTIC - the chips were fab too! The service was very...

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
