“Perfectly cooked skinless cod, crispy batter, excellent chips, fresh bread & butter, little dish of pickled onions and gherkins, homemade tartare sauce” – no wonder Tony and son Sean McDermott achieve outstanding ratings for their veteran New Addington chippie (est 1987).

“McDermott’s is a Croydon phenomenon”: albeit one “set in a dull, suburban shopping centre”, it “consistently serves the best fish ’n’ chips”. The ambience – or lack of – has “improved no end” after a recent revamp, and if anything the always “brilliant” staff “seem to have doubled their efforts” too.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
