Hiked quite a distance with my fiancé to have the fish here! We ordered completely different fish and were wonderfully surprised that we could actually taste the difference! Very fresh and clean taste, cute and cozy space with retro feel. Would definitely recommend to friends!!

Very nice small traditional fish and chips place direct at the Oxford Street. Small but very nice and clean place with a unique decor. I can highly recommend this place especially if you want to try Haddock and Code Fish.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
