survey result

Summary

“Excellent fish, and particularly good chips” are the hallmarks of this “grand little chippie” in Bloomsbury (“with old-fashioned home-made puds if you have the stamina”). Once “so dated it was almost charming”, regulars are now split over whether the recent refurb has “smartened it up” or “lost some of its former character”.

Summary

“Some of the customers may look on their last legs, but for fine fish ’n’ chips at fair prices” seek out this old-fashioned Bloomsbury chippy, whose “faded ’70s décor has its own character”.

Summary

“The fish is as fresh as the decor is tired”, at this “old-fashioned-plush” Bloomsbury chippy; who cares if it sometimes feels “like an OAP daycare centre”?

Summary

“Still one of the most reliable – and most popular – chippies in London”; “reassuringly”, this Bloomsbury veteran “hasn’t changed in years”, so such aspects as the “hideous” lighting have to be deemed part of the ‘charm’.

"Not sure whether their standards are slipping because of their popularity. Or I remember it as better the last time we visited."
