I love fish and chips, i will always drive the extra miles for my taste. I live in Shirley and our local shop is closed for holiday. Googled the next closest and McDermotts came up......award winning does not normally equate to ones expectations. Love it Love it love it. Wednesday lunchtime food tasted like Friday food, fresh clean crispy light... More

McDermott's continues to thrive. It never steps outside the narrow confines of being "a chip shop with a restaurant attached", but it does what it does very well indeed. It is invariably busy. The place is clean and the staff are warm and friendly. The menu is essentially fish and chips or fish and chips, with or without peas, pickles... More

I have been to the famous McDermotts's a few times now. Always put off going as thought it might be over rated. Not so. First rate fish and service was top notch. I wish I had this business.

Even though it is quite a drive to go there we regularly go to get a dose of fish and chips. They have really got it well set up and everything is cooked to order. It may not be the cheapest but is definitely the best in the area.

Wow...quite possibly the best "Chippy" in England, certainly the best inland. The fish was superior--large portions and very fresh. No leaving the bottom side on the plate, quality through and through. Coming back again...

We went there on Sat 02/08/2014, it was our first time. The place was relatively busy. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Both of our waitresses, both called Lucy, were very friendly and helpful. I have tried many highly rated Fish and chips places in London and I must say I was impressed by the freshness of the fish and the... More

We come to London a couple times of year to visit family. We always come here for a hug and a kiss from Lucy. The best fresh fish and the mushy peas aren't too bad either.
