Visited the Whitecross Street branch and I had what were simply the best chips in London! Very reasonable prices too.

Simply the best fish and chips Ive ever had. Living in Cornwall, surrounded by the sea and fishing I would not of expected Kennedys, not only to be better, tastier and have bigger portions but also cheaper! Could not fault it. The cod portions (standard regular not large) were huge. The fish was prefectly cooked. the batter crisp. The chips were chunky, crispy and plentiful. The mushy pea came in extra big pots. Ive payed more than double (Steins Falmouth, Padstow) and received far less. Will return and recommend wholeheartedly.

Firstly, they've replaced the great laugh cockney girls with rust European 'robots' so all the banter is gone.
I fear it's been sold to foreigners as some key points are now missing ,

No fish knives !

Black pepper instead of white

Fish improperly battered so one end was fresh, the other burnt .

Lemon served on plate

These are all no-no's in the British fish and chip experience

Not cheap either
I won't be back
Another bit of old (better) London bites the dust…

Black pepper instead of white

It's a nice lunchtime drop in. Always pretty crowded and the food is good. Service was lacking on our visit and the drinks were flat. Might just be a one off thing. I want to try the pies, which I'm told are very good. Will go back it's just what it says it is.

I often go to the White Cross Street branch and am a great fan They also have healthy options like grilled fish and salad and some yummy fish cakes worthy of a go..Their pies are legendary and they do variants such as butternut squash and chicken if you so fancy it The White cross Street branch has a good set of tables and takeaway as well as dine in are both equally pleasant Service is friendly and warm as well as efficient...
