Great chippy

Chose the restaurant as they provide gluten free fish and chips. Very welcoming (was kissed by waiting staff on arrival). Portion size just right. Tasty "normal" fish and chips. Mum had the GF version and she really enjoyed it. Would definitely visit again.

Food is... More

We have been to McDermott's a few times and it really is the best fish and chips we have ever had. It was recommended to us by friends and we dont go anywhere else now. The fish is cooked to perfection every time and the chips are perfect. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much... More

Visited this fish and chip restaurant with friends tonight. I have never tasted fish and chips like it. The batter was perfect- crisp and tasty with no hint of grease. The chips were lovely too and the service was friendly and helpful. It's a long way from our home but I'm sure we'll be back

The food is always freshly cooked to perfection and no wonder it is an award winning restaurant it is "simply the best around". Only the best and freshest ingredients are used and your meal is cooked while you wait so it is fresh and piping hot. Fish and Chips as it should be. We are so lucky to have it... More

Whether take away or eat in this has got to be the best fish and chip restaurant in Croydon. They are incredibly organized and take your order as soon as you walk in the door. Everything is cooked fresh and non greasy. Great chips. No wonder you have to queue but the service is really quick
