Portion sizes are great! I mean, even too big, but why would I complain about more food? All menu items are good, you also get student discount. Takeaway possible of course. Will return even more frequent henceforth.

This small restaurant is one of my favourites. Service is fast and the food is excellent. It's certainly one of the best fish&chips in London.

Kennedys is a great neighborhood restaurant filled with locals, and all the staples on the menu. Great fish and chips and many other options. Drinks were good, prices were right and I'd recommend it to anyone in the area.

I went there to get regular fish and chips and they had the rudest manager working there ever. The food is good but I'd never give them a single penny of my money again in my life. They evicted me and my friend (I'm 8...More

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
