Description: Local favourite Geales is an old-fashioned fish and chip restaurant which has been frying up its simple, delicious seafood dishes for over 68 years. The subdued décor adds a hint of Notting Hill glamour to this otherwise straightforward restaurant, but it's the fish that everyone has come for. Specials come fresh from Devon and Cornwall, and there are plenty of favourites such as dressed crab, salmon and leek fishcakes and oysters straight from the bar.

We didn't stray from the fish and chips and we were not disappointed at all! Great service (our family of four showed up for lunch at 11:45 when they open at 12:00, and they opened up to seat us immediately) and great fish and chips. Our rule is not to stray too far from what a place us known for,... More

We were asked to wait as there was a 'better' table - we were given one in the meantime whilst the waiter checked if some people sitting outside wanted it. Then a group of bright young things came in and were promptly given the 'better' table - guess that's a hazard of not being 25 any more! Food was completely... More

When I went to write this review I saw some of the comments left by other people and can only say that everybody's experiences are different - two people can both eat in the same place at the same time and have totally different opinions. I'm not local to Notting Hill and so am totally new to Geales and am... More

I guess this is a fish and chip shop and if you stray from that seems disappointment will be yours. Starters were absolutely tasteless, although the mussels were fleshy, there was absolutely none of the flavours described. I ordered salt and pepper squid and perhaps I have had worse but could not remember when and the mayo was a load... More

I have been visiting Geales in Notting Hill from the age of five with my parents however today me and my partner decided to go for a lunch as we haven't been in a while. It was as incredible as the first time I went as a child. The staff made us feel like we were royals. Everything we could... More

Having grown up in the area, I have been visiting Geales on and off for some 30 years, and it used to be fabulous. Great fresh fish, 'wallies', Brakspear on tap and the most amazing apple crumble in London. all gone now sadly. Its gone all up-market, with grilled options and fancy shellfish and the food is dreadful. sadly Costas... More

December 27th. Having not been to Geales for many years and despite its pretty terrible Trip Advisor ratings, we decided to take the plunge. It was a mistake. We ordered cod and haddock, both with chips and a glass of white wine. In the case of the latter, to charge £4.95 for a glass of house white wine is quite... More

Geales nottinghill never fails when it comes to producing quality food. I hadnt booked, so on a friday night when i popped in with 4 other guests I was delighted when they could fit us in. I have been coming here for years and cant find anywhere else in London that comes close to the fish and chips.

I dined at this restaurant with a friend to celebrate a special evening. As this place is known for sea food we went for oysters ( the waiter was remarking the quality and freshness of their products). On Friday both my friend and I fell sick with the typical food poisoning symptoms and were badly unwell until Sunday. If you... More
