Some say it’s “the best fish ’n’ chip shop for miles around”, some say it’s “one of the best inside the M25”. Whatever the hype, it’s generally agreed that the chippie Tony McDermott opened 35 years ago in the outskirts of Croydon serves fish of “exceptional quality, well worth going out of the way for”.

"One year on and the service at McDermotts just gets better. High quality fish, usually cod, haddock and plaice, served everyday, supplemented by scampi and chicken dishes. Very personable ambience and worthy of repeated visits throughout the year. Great value for money."
