The chips have changed and not for the better. I ordered a late meal and couldn’t wait to dig into the lovely chips. They’re also delicious fluffy and soak the salt and vinegar up nicely. This time it was crunchy like fries and that delicious...taste was missing. The fish was nice, hubby enjoyed his Cajun cod but the chips were awful. It’s as if they had been coated and they were not nice. Go back to the old chips!More

I went to a meal at skipjacks with my family and the service we received was exceptional. The waiters were friendly and efficient and maintained high standards. The food is the best in London without a doubt, I had the cod and chips and it...was amazing. Overall, a very good experience and I will definitely be returning again! The restaurant was very clean.More

We've had mixed experiences here and it's gone from being one of our top 3 chippies to below average. Once in a blue moon the chips are nice but the fish and other elements are very variable. The last experience was the last straw. The...ribs were dry and the wrong order and the chips were stale. I was misled about the type of rib so I am not impressed. After having dried out fish previously costing £37, for 1 portion of chips and 2 pieces of fish - we decided not to go back again. There are better fresher places that charge less.More

I've been frequenting Skipjacks for years, probably at least about 15 years since my Harrow school and college days. I remember asking periodically whether the chips are fried separately to other products such as haddock, sausages etc. I was told in no uncertain terms that...there is a separate fryer dedicated to only chips. I was told by non veggie friends that this is not the case and the fact they could taste sausage/fish with their chips. To my absolute surprise visiting on a busy Saturday night and observing all fryers through the well lit window for 15 mins, simply there is no dedicated fryer just soley for chips. I'm hugely disappointed by this personally. Appreciate this won't make a difference to non veggie folks which is fine but personally I don't like being lied to in the pursuit of profit. I'm on the hunt for a veg friendly chippy in the Harrow area...such a shame.More

This used to be our usual fish and chips place. But following 2 very disappointing take away meals this is no longer the case. On both occasions the fish was wrapped in a way that made it stick to the paper and just fall to...bits. The portions are smaller than they were and it's very expensive too. Sorry but we won't be returning.More

It was good to hear the takeaway has opened and they continue to produce good food and lovely friendly staff. They are trying to open the restaurant soon under new rules. Looking forward to eating there again.

My wife and I have been going to Skipjacks for years. I do not eat fish out at any other restaurant as nobody produces anything close to theirs. The fish is consistently superb and I guess that is why it is always busy. May they...continue to reign supreme for many years to come.More

The place is trading on it’s previous reputation. The chips are not bad but everything else is average. The batter is too thick on the fish, the grilled fish can be good but the standard is not consistent. On the last occasion it tasted off....The service is poor. We ordered over the phone. When you call the advertised number the chap taking the call is irritated and wants you to call the ‘takeaway line’. I don’t why don’t they don’t advertise this line. They forgot to give us our order but we were charged £23 for one portion of chips, a piece of grilled fish and 2 portions of mushy peas. We rang to ask about our fish and they couldn’t care less! We won’t step foot in here again!More
