We ate here tonight because of the great reviews on this site. The compliments are well deserved. I have never eaten better fried fish or chips. Service was friendly and efficient. We will be returning soon.

I went here with my grandparents, parents, brother and girlfriend for lunch on Saturday 15th November 2014. We were seated very quickly as the restaurant wasn't full and our orders were taken quickly too. Service was good but seemed to be quick and relaxed, not fine dining standard! We all ordered the Cod and my brother and I ordered the... More

Great quality food and flawless service. I've had the cod, haddock, skate and pies here and all are very good. The staff make you feel unbelievably welcome and service is also quick. The Croydon brewed ale/bitters are excellent too. The only gripe is it's quite pricey for what is essentially fish and chips served in a restaurant, but still cheaper... More

McDermott's has been serving Forestdale and surrounds for years and has expanded the business based on good fish and chips , takeaway or restaurant service , cooked to order. So if that is what you fancy then it is worth a visit. Loyalty card means every 6th fish and chips is free.

The best place for fish and chips, the service is top notch and the food is outstanding, I have been a number of times to both the take out and the sit in part of this one of a kind chippie. Always cooked to order and always a prompt. Prices are a little higher than a traditional chip shop but... More

great fish and chip take away normal order of Haddock and chips is excellent. restaurant is worth a visit although a bit pricier than your normal chippie the food and service are excellent. one downside on the takeaway service is that fish seems limited to Cod and Haddock and no rock which is disappointing. but a minor gripe.

We arrived at 6.30pm knowing they could be busy. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and we were shown to a table immediately. We ordered and our meals arrived freshly cooked, hot, and were absolute perfection. We each had a different fish dish and they all looked superb, tasted superb, moist, succulent fish with a light crisp batter served... More

I was aware there was a fish and chip shop there but only went to try it the other day, and what a treat. The restaurant itself is very modern inside, with subdued lighting, warm decor and comfortable seating, nothing like your usual fish and chip shop. You cannot book and we were perhaps fortunate that we didn't wait long... More

We usually use the takeaway which is really good but thought as we had friends round we'd try the restaurant. It was very busy but we were seated quickly by a nice waitress. The fish and chips is excellent, really crispy batter and the little extras are a nice touch. It's fully licensed and my husband enjoyed being able to... More

I come from Southend-On-Sea (one would think the home of good fish and chips) but it's so hard nowadays to find anywhere half decent. This is by far one of the best chip shops I have ever been too, possibly even slightly better than Golden Union in Oxford Circus and that is also incredibly good. We took mine and my... More
