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.

Cozy small place specializing in fish and chips. A lot of choices to choose. Price is reasonable considering they are in Convent Garden. The place seemed pretty popular. The fish and chips tasted good but if you are small eater it is advisable to share as their portion is pretty huge. Good value for money.

Amazing fish and chips with great choice of fish and freshly cooked to order. Hot tea in pot with jug of milk. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and wonderful food.

Very nice food, quite expensive! Located centrally near Covent garden. We had a normal portion of cod which was more than enough. Ideal for lunch after shopping.

Googled "fish and chips London" in traditional chinese and the first three results that popped out are all recommendations of this restaurant. I really looked forward to dining here and this diner lived up to its reputation! Would love to visit again.

I hate to give other than great reviews but felt I must comment to help improve. This is a good-looking restaurant, clean, friendly with great décor. BUT the fish and chips we had were absolutely tasteless. My friend had the plaice and I had the giant prawns. These were obviously frozen and had no flavour whatsoever. The batter looked great...

Fast service As we were leaving we met a woman who's Grandparents had started the restaurant. Learned a bit of history. Their family has since sold... More
