Best fish and chip take away in Croydon. Great fish and good chips, always prepared freshly to your order. Price slightly over the average, but you always pay for what you get an in this case good value

Much more than a fish and chip shop restaurant. Food, service and ambience second to none. Worthy of its Fish and Chip Shop restaurant of the year award.

This is a restaurant adjacent to McDermott's Fish and Chip shop. The restaurant is spacious and clean and the staff are very friendly and efficient. It is full waitress service. You certainly feel like you have had good value for money.

We visit this Fish & Chip restaurant often and have never been disappointed. Friendly staff who welcome you and though they have known you for years (well I suppose they have really). Perhaps a little bit pricier than your average Fish & Chips would be, but as you always know that it will be freshly cooked and consistently good, it... More

Haddock and chips almost as good as from Yorkshire! Our waitress Lucy was superb an asset to any business! Try the bottled Croyden Cronx ales.

Have eaten in this restaurant many times and have never had a bad meal the fish is always fresh and when cooked has the perfect white flesh. Staff have been with the restaurant for many years, always greeting you with a smile & if Lucy is showing you to your table you could have a kiss on the cheek. Can... More

Tucked away off Gravel Hill in Forestdale the locals use it expensively -almost always a queue which speaks volumes about the great quality. Really friendly staff - quick and smiley
