Excellent and plentiful fish & chips, with a large selection of different fishes, in addition to the classical cod and haddock, for example my wife enjoyed the plaice. Desserts were also excellent. All very easy to digest. Not cheap for a fish & chips, but cot effective, given the quality and the quantity.

This place is dedicated to the Fish and Chips dish. Here you can get it with a variety of fish types. It was good but I'd pass on the onion rings...they were terrible. They did serve Budvar for anyone who's interested in what the original Budweiser tasted like. The place itself is fairly cramped but it has seating in the... More

There are many Fish and Chip restaurants in London, but this restuarant stands head and shoulders above all others. The courtesy and attentiveness of the staff was worthy of one of the main London restaurants. The size and quality of the food was truly outstanding. The next time you are visiting Theatre land in the West End I highly recommend... More

This is a very small but traditional Fish & Chip shop. The staff are very friendly and although we had no reservation, we managed to get a table. The fish was delicious - fresh and a very crispy batter. The chips fat cut and the sauce and mashed peas all home made and really tasty. This place is a must... More

We only stop here for a light bite and a cuppa..... The chips were amazing, not had chips like that for a long time and a nice large cup of tea. Service was good and from what I saw the fish look good too. Would definitely go back, when next in London.

Rock & Sole Plaice is awesome! We went to the restaurant around 4pm for a break after doing some shopping – no queue, we were happy about it. The restaurant is not close to the tube station but easy to find using Google Map. We ordered regular cod to share between two of us. Very big portion – we were... More

When you want a tasty, straightforward, no frills but solid plate of fish and chips, this is where it's at. I came here about 3 years ago and remember loving it then and the same was the case now. Super fresh fish, battered and fried to perfection. And he chips are amazing! Plenty of potato but still crunchy on the... More

Located in a reasonably pleasant London street, it was actually a pleasure to eat al fresco. Menu is short, to the point and easy to understand. It's a Fish and Chips shop so what do you want? As I have mentioned its a but pricey compared with the local pubs but I would say its well worth it. Nice portions... More

We make a point of dining for lunch here at least once per trip to London. Accessible to central London. Traditional fish and chips. One can dine outside for lunch, limited space inside.
