Great big portions, chips cooked in dripping, freshly cooked haddock, doorstop bread and butter with builders tea. Perfect traditional chippy - comfort food at the end of a long day

it doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it's clean and very much 1960's style - and this is a good thing as far as I'm concerned - it makes a welcome change from the industrial chic prevalent these days. So I had a...More

Much needed food after spending day at hospital with our son. Great service, piping hot freshly cooked fish and chips. I had haddock and my husband had cod with two cups of tea £17.10p. So good we are going back.

The atmosphere has remained unchanged for many years. Small & unpretentious, the service is good in a straight-forward & friendly way. The food is very tasty, a distinctive chip flavour from beef dripping - & invariably a wide selection of fish. Good choice of extras...More

As a Northerner, I have high expectations for fish and chips: the chips should be piping hot, and mainly soft, with crispy edges and ends, and the fish should be firm, very white and a proper size, never mealy. Also, chips shops should never be...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
