This is a traditional restaurant serving simple fares, mainly fish. The food is nothing exceptional although the prices are quite so i.e. good value for money.

Planned on dinner but arrived early and was starving so we went in. Lunch goes till 5 pm and was a bargain. Delicious large serving of cod and chips and peas for £6.99 and a house wine for £1.50! Service was friendly and restaurant was spotless. Diners started arriving after 5, looks like it would be busy later. Dinner menu... More

Used to love eating their fat chips as a treat, the portion served me as 3 meals, usually accompanied by baked beans...but since my health kick I have had to give them a wide berth. Had never eaten in before, but my lovely neighbour suggested it as her preferred place when we wanted to treat her and a friend to... More

Decent sized cod, well cooked in a non greasy batter. Great value especially when a house beer (often London Pride or Budweiser) is only £1. Time Out got it wrong and there are no Venison and red wine pies, but the other pies are apparently good.

We were looking forward to a good fish and chips dinner while visiting London and we found it! The portions were huge and authentic. We loved our dining experience here which had a real British vibe as it was full of locals. Great dining experience. They also had a take out service next door. The pies looked delish!

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
