This was at the top of our list for best meals. Fried fish but not too greasy. The chips/fries were thick and crispy. If we had stayed in London longer, we would have stopped again!

Fresh fish (no fishy smell thankfully) with manually cut fries. The vinegar malt adds some strength to the taste. Cozy place that accepts credit cards also.
