“Great traditional fish and chips”“still done very well” – have made this chippy a “cabbies’ favourite” for decades. Strangely, though, for an institution tracing its origins back almost a century, the interior of its Lisson Grove premises is dull and “without atmosphere”.

“An institution for decades” – this famous “fish and chippery” in Lisson Grove traces its origins back almost a century and took its current name in 1964 (but don’t go expecting period decor – the interior’s not unpleasant, but anodyne). “Eat in or take away, generous portions and freshly cooked”.

“If you just want good old fashioned fish ’n’ chips”, what is probably London’s most famous chippie (certainly one of its oldest) “is the place to come to introduce the national dish to your foreign guest”. Top Tip – “it’s best for take-away – the restaurant area is good, but somehow the food’s not quite the same”.

One of London’s best-established chippies is, say fans, “still difficult to beat” and “a great stop-off for fresh fish ’n’ chips”. Aficionados feel that “the restaurant section lags behind its standout takeout”.
