Modern Clean tidy restaurant with excellent staff and service. Clever short menu and they are very good at it. The fish is the best I have ever had, not the cheapest but it is good. McDermott's are licensed and their bottle of Chablis goes very well with the food. I only wish they were closer to where we live. Plenty... More

We found this place after looking at reviews for the top fish and chips restaurants in the country! It's fantastic! The staff and Service are amazing and they serve the food with wonderful pickles, fresh crusty bread and crab and prawn nibbles. We enjoyed the food so much we have been back a few times and never been disappointed! If... More

Quite simply McDermott's serves the best fish and chips in the Croydon area, and I wonder whether there is a better traditional chippy in the whole of London that is better? On a busy night there may be a wait for a table or take away, but that's a testament to the food. The only thing missing is seaside, but... More

This is a restaurant / take away, serving the best cod and haddock I have had anywhere. I have eaten fish and chips in some of the most well known restaurants including Rick Stiens in Padstow but this in my book can't be bettered The service is fast and efficient, and Lucy ( the manageress) is constantly on the ball,as...

I usually get a takeaway from this place on, or just after, payday because this place is quite pricey. However, you just cannot beat the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. I have never had an average meal from here - it has always been excellent! They definitely deserved to win Best Chippie in 2012.

Still the best Fish and Chips Restaurant in London, we have enjoyed their high quality Fish Chips and of course not to forget the Mushy Peas on every one of our yearly visits form Canada. Keep up the good work Lucy!

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
