Great place to have fish and chips in Camden Town. The food was so tasty and the chips are home made, not fake chips. Plus points for that! Also interesting décor inside!

Fish wise, its as fresh as it gets. The cod just flakes off and almost melts in your mouth. They are usually cooked to order but I am unsure if they still do it now as sometimes when I pass by the takeaway, I can...More

The fish and chips is quite nice. Portion is big and moist. Fish is fresh. The service is also quite fast, with nice environment. Reasonable price.

We went here for lunch and having heard a lot about Poppies we were disappointed. The decor is retro and 50s but will dull coloured tiles and small uncomfortable tables and chairs. The 50s was a period of austerity so not sure an accurate replica...More

...it was even worse than previous visits. The staff rush you, the fish is bland and tasteless and the chips are underdone. To get condiments, you pay through the nose for tiny portions and the staff don't seem to think this is an issue. I...More

Enjoyed the chicken, the 1/4 was plenty. The seafood platter is a good choice as a meal as well. The apple pie was a hit for dessert.

We chose to eat good old fashioned Cod and Chips from Poppies despite all the other wonderful choices at Camden Lock Market. I can only say that it was definitely the right choice, The chips were excellent, fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside...More

Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High

Have a question, hoping PopsN can help me out. :) Would be very interested in allergy information, traveling with two young boys with multiple food allergies. (Nut, Treenut, Coconut and Shellfish)

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. You'll enjoy your meal surrounded by authentic 1940s/1950s memorabilia including a jukebox 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, following the success of the first Poppies restaurant in Spitalfields, brings his passion for this much-loved dish to Camden.

Customers can find the same great quality food and service here, and the venue has live jazz/swing/pop/blues bands playing every Friday and Saturday at our Fish 'n' Gigs nights.

In addition to fish and chips, you can choose from other British favourites, such as pie, fish cakes, saveloy, battered sausage, and that love-it-or-hate-it East End 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 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.

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