“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”.

For 30 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).
