It's just been announced that we've made the shortlist for the top 3 businesses in the Best Multiple Foodservice Operator Award, as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards. Our Fish & Chips are a true British classic, made with our very own London Pride beer batter and served with a generous helping of chunky chips. So if you haven't been in to try them, now is your chance... They are soon to be award winning (well, fingers crossed!).

Garfunkles in Irving St (this is located at the bottom of Leicester Square) offer good food at a fair price for London. The staff were very polite and helpful without trying to upsell items you may not want. We had Gammon which was to my surprise really was a slice of gammon not as we had in a other resturants...
