Harden's survey result
A “great institution” – this “very traditional” family-run Bloomsbury chippy is one of the best around the West End, and a safe bet for “good fresh fish, grilled or battered, with proper crisp chips”. “You don’t come here for the ambience” – it’s “had a facelift” but “never really changes… thank goodness!”.
“One of London’s better chippies” – this “traditional family-run” outfit in Bloomsbury remains hugely popular thanks to its big variety of “very fresh, totally reliable fish” (all deep-fried) in “large portions”. It has “generally freshened itself up since the new generation took the reins”, bringing a “slightly smarter ambience and decor”.
“Excellent fish, and particularly good chips” are the hallmarks of this “grand little chippie” in Bloomsbury (“with old-fashioned home-made puds if you have the stamina”). Once “so dated it was almost charming”, regulars are now split over whether the recent refurb has “smartened it up” or “lost some of its former character”.
“Some of the customers may look on their last legs, but for fine fish ’n’ chips at fair prices” seek out this old-fashioned Bloomsbury chippy, whose “faded ’70s décor has its own character”.
