We had a great time, fantastic food only down side was had to wait 10 mins for a table even tho it was empty. But it was a fantastic experience and will be returning. Lots of old classic music, decor, and traditional fish and chips

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

No, it's not only fried fish - they serve fried potatoes, too! And, as others have said, they also serve pies and chicken ... It kind of sounds like fried, battered fish isn't really your thing, so you should probably... More

Let us take you back to the 1940s/50s London with award-winning, traditional British fish and chips. Enjoy mouth-watering, fresh, sustainably-caught fish, cooked in crunchy batter and served with golden chips and classic mushy peas. As you enjoy your meal, you'll be surrounded by authentic 1940s/1950s memorabilia including a jukebo and Second World War posters, lovingly curated by Poppies owner Pat'Pop' Newland. Pop has been serving fish and chips in the East End for 60 years, and brings his passion for this much-loved dish to you. In addition to fish and chips,you can choose from other traditional British favourites, such as pie, fish cakes, saveloy, battered sausage, and that East End love-it-or-hate-it special - jellied eels. For those with a sweet tooth, we've included some traditional English puddings such as apple pie, Cartmell's award winning sticky toffee pudding from Cumbria and ice cream from the Minghella family business on the Isle of Wight. To wash it all down, choose from our selection of drinks which include traditional English cloudy apple juice, ginger beer, wine, beers and local ales. Our take away food comes wrapped in newsprint boxes or cones, just as it was in the old days. While reservations are not a must, we do recommend you book in advance as it can get very busy.
