The quality of the fish and chips was excellent and we didn’t have to wait long to be served. It is as others have said a little pricey made worse by a 10% service charge.

This is a great place for Fish and Chips, situated just 5 mins walk from Camden Tube Station. We ordered Cod and Haddock. Food was really really good. The batter and the chips are proper and although the "medium" size fish is quite big it...More

Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High

the main dish they serve is straight-forward fish and chips. Obviously the fish will be covered in batter, and both that and the chips will be cooked in fat. I cannot imagine that any of the allergies you mention would be a... 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. You'll enjoy your meal surrounded by authentic 1940s/1950s memorabilia including a jukebox 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, following the success of the first Poppies restaurant in Spitalfields, brings his passion for this much-loved dish to Camden. Customers can find the same great quality food and service here, and the venue has live jazz/swing/pop/blues bands playing every Friday and Saturday at our Fish 'n' Gigs nights. In addition to fish and chips, you can choose from other British favourites, such as pie, fish cakes, saveloy, battered sausage, and that love-it-or-hate-it East End 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 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. Reservations are not a must, but we do recommend you book in advance as it can get very busy.
