Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
This “hipsters’ take on the urban chippy”, founded six years ago in Brook Green, now also boasts branches in East Sheen and Clapham (Ealing and Islington are no more). They’re “unpretentious, the fresh fish is superb, and the chips aren’t half bad either”.
“Fun and trendy chippies”, which are “traditional and yet modern at the same time” (“if that doesn’t make sense you’ll have to go and see for yourself!”). Service is “lovely” (even if it “could be slicker”), and they offer “really well-cooked, no-nonsense fish ’n’ chips”.
“Flaky, fresh fish, and proper fat chips” – plus funkier menu options (eg fennel salad!) – have fuelled growth at this chippy-chain, which fans say is “traditional where it counts, but stylish and modern too”; the design can seem “a bit dull” however, and sceptics say they’re “only a bit better than an average chippy”.
“Exceptionally fresh fish, lightly prepared” wins praise for this modern-day reinvention of the chippy; there’s some feeling it “promises more than it delivers”, though, and critics find the cooking no more than “OK”.
