To be fair this place seems very popular, the atmosphere is nice and the service was friendly and fast. But. The food was not up to it. We ordered three meals for the family and none were special. The platter had few pieces of each...More

Chips were soggy. Was really excited to try this out, thinking that it was one of the best fish and chips in London. Was terribly disappointed.

A cool place with nice and attentive staff, but the place is VERY expensive. You can easily spend double what I'd expect to pay for classic fish and chips. The place is very nicely set out inside and you can eat in or takeaway. A...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Let us take you back to the 1940s/50s London with award-winning, traditional British fish and chips.

Enjoy mouth-watering, fresh, sustainably-caught fish, cooked in crunchy batter and served with golden chips and classic mushy peas. As you enjoy your meal, you'll be surrounded by authentic 1940s/1950s memorabilia including a jukebo and Second World War posters, lovingly curated by Poppies owner Pat'Pop' Newland.

Pop has been serving fish and chips in the East End for 60 years, and brings his passion for this much-loved dish to you. In addition to fish and chips,you can choose from other traditional British favourites, such as pie, fish cakes, saveloy, battered sausage, and that East End love-it-or-hate-it special - jellied eels.

For those with a sweet tooth, we've included some traditional English puddings such as apple pie, Cartmell's award winning sticky toffee pudding from Cumbria and ice cream from the Minghella family business on the Isle of Wight.

To wash it all down, choose from our selection of drinks which include traditional English cloudy apple juice, ginger beer, wine, beers and local ales.

Our take away food comes wrapped in newsprint boxes or cones, just as it was in the old days.

While reservations are not a must, we do recommend you book in advance as it can get very busy.
