If you didn't know where this restaurant was you would miss it! Tucked upstairs on top of the fish and chip shop. Once you are up there the service and the food was superb, lovely fish

Well this experience was a bit different. Have heard this brasserie was really nice so maybe our expectations were a bit too high. Our starters were quite nice (crab, prawn & advocado). The main course was a bit confusing we ordered grilled fish with chips sticking with traditional however when the dinner arrived it had what seemed like Sundays veg... More

Good food friendly staff very good price. A great night out not only was there a good fish selection there was also meat and a veggie option. This is a small restaurant but with atmosphere. Will go again.

With starters at £2.95 and main courses from about £7, this restaurant is definitely worth a visit. The food is mainly based on the traditional fish and chips, with a few extras. The grilled skate was lovely as was the battered fish. With wine around £10 a bottle, this is an all round great value venue. There is also chicken... More

As other people have said the menu is much smaller than before but its good no nonsense fish and chips, that being... More

Mussels were nice and good value, avocado prawns were OK . Mains were Fried fish - all the usuals plus chicken or scampi and chips... More

Just reopened as The Ongar Road Fish and Steak Bar.Refurbished with new tables and chairs in a simpler layout and with a much simpler menu - fish, steak scampi and chips or salad, a few starters and a couple of desserts. The main thing is that the food is still great, plentiful and delicious. If you want a lot of... More
