Popped in for lunch time for take away cod and chips. Batter was soggy, fish was barely warm, and the chips seemed not to have had their second fry. For the price (almost double compared to my local in Walthamstow) expected much better.

Proper fish bar. Great service, great product. Chips that taste like chips 'used to, back in the day' and the same with the fish. The home-made fish cakes are also excellent as is the curry sauce.

The food and staff are first class. Food was very fresh, well served and of excellent quality. I thought it a little pricey for Fish and Chips but I suppose that's central London for you.
