Harden's survey result
With “fish fresh from Billingsgate” and enthusiastic family ownership, this substantial South Woodford chippy is a “good local standby”, well worth a sit-down meal rather than take-away.
“Fresh fish cooked well” is the mantra at this South Woodford chippy with a proud tradition of doing things properly. The current owners sold up their successful west London chippies after almost 30 years five years ago, but ‘fell in love’ with the Ark and returned to the trade in late 2019. “Everyone is so friendly, it feels like you’re visiting relatives”.
Solidly high ratings again in the last survey for this South Woodford chippy, whose owning family are fish ’n’ chips royalty (having previously run Lisson Grove’s famous Seashell); fish comes daily from Billingsgate.

For 32 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).
