Absolutely brillant. I was told this restaurant was rated #1 in the U.K. 3 years ago and I understand why. The BEST Fish & Chips I've EVER had! I had the cod (recommended) with chips. It was fresh, succelent, not greasey and just melted in your mouth. The side of pickeled onion matched well. You also get fresh baked baguette... More

Great food, cooked to order. Takes 10 minutes or so for piping hot grub. Slightly more expensive than most, but worth it.

The chips are crispy, moist and tasty. The cod is sublime. The service is quick and organised and there is even a restaurant. What more is there to say? Try it - you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely fabulous! This place is the best in Croydon, the best in Surrey, and the best in England. That's my opinion and I am serious too. The service is speedy, where they take your order even if you are outside in the queue. Their chips are tasty. Their cod in batter is very tasty, with crispy batter and beautifully cooked... More

The fish is of the highest quality and beautifully cooked. It is expensive but you are getting an excellent product so it is worth it.

I'd heard some great reviews of this place but wondered if it would live up to its name. In terms of location, a few minutes walk from the local buses or 10 minutes from Gravel Hill tram. Large car park if you are driving there. The restaurant itself is a large fairly plain room, simply furnished and decorated. There is... More

There is a good reason why people queue out of the door at this takeaway. Skinless, boneless tasty fish cooked to order it is the best !

My partner and I have eaten in the restaurant many times and also use the take away service, the fish is cooked as you order as are the chips so everything is fresh on the plate or the bag on take away. We both have the cod which is so white and fresh it falls apart in your mouth, the... More

Food great shame about rude member of staff. (Short brown haired lady on the till) My wife normally collects the meals and has a loyalty card. I was passing so ordered the takeaway. When paying I presented the card (Had 3 stamps already) Cod and chips and saveloy and chips. When the card was given back it was only stamped... More
