Featured Croydon Restaurants
1. McDermotts Fish & Chips Fish & chips restaurant in Croydon 5-7 The Forestdale Shopping Centre Featherbed Ln - CR0
Tony & Sean McDermott “deserve all their awards” at this “great fish ’n’ chippie (est 1987), on the outskirts of Croydon”, but “worth going miles out of your way” for; it’s “always packed”, so expect to queue.
2. MEATliquor Burgers, etc restaurant in Croydon 99 George St - CR0
“Irreverent pop-art-meets-punk surrounds” are the hallmark of this cult chain, home of the ‘Dead Hippie’ burger, washed down with ‘Grog’ (“powerful rum cocktails”), showcased by a new West End flagship just off Oxford Circus. “I thought I might be bored with yet another dirty burger-style place, but these are so good” for “when you need a ‘filthy’ treat” that’s “tasty as hell” (and, moreover, “much better than GBK, Byron and so on”).
3. Five Guys Burgers, etc restaurant in Croydon 7-11 High Street - CR0
“When all you want is an old-school burger”, these US-based arrivals of recent years really “hit the spot” – you can “build your own”, with “tons of accessories”; plus “seriously addictive fries”, “thick milkshakes”, and “more soda flavours than is reasonable”. “The eat-in experience is as depressing as McDonald’s”, though, in fact perhaps more so – “some branches have a strangely gloomy ambience” – but fans feel that “if you don’t mind 1980s-rock, a trip can still be surprisingly fun”.
