Where can you find the best fish and chips in London?
Fish and chips are an absolute must if you want to make your trip to England’s capital city perfect. So you don’t get bogged down in the vast array of offers, we’ve compiled our four favourite fish and chip restaurants in London.
England’s culinary delight
Fish and chips is one of England’s national dishes; it consists of fried, battered fish – usually cod or haddock – and traditional thick-cut chips. Add salt, vinegar, ketchup and tartare sauce and you’ve got the original British meal! Nowadays, you can get fish and chips on every street corner for any price. Here are our four favourites in London town.
1. The Golden Hind in Marylebone
The little restaurant The Golden Hind in the heart of Marylebone has an inviting cosy atmosphere to go with its traditional fish and chips. Not only is the quality of the food here amazing, so is the quantity! In addition to the great value for money, there’s also a great selection of side dishes. You can also order takeaway, which is very practical as you often have to wait a while for a table. The restaurant is also unique in that you can bring your own drinks with you – the staff will even provide you with glasses! The nearest underground station is Bond Street.

2. North Sea Fish Restaurant in Bloomsbury
Just like The Golden Hind, the North Sea Fish Restaurant offers great quality food, but with an even larger selection of fish. Here the national dish is served with homemade tartare sauce and either traditional chips or boiled potatoes. This family-run restaurant also offers a separate chippy, where you can order takeaway to enjoy on the streets of London. Due to the variety and the quality of the food, prices are in the upper range. The restaurant is located on the corner of Leigh Street and Sandwich Street. The closest underground stations are King’s Cross St Pancras and Russell Square.

3. Masters Super Fish in Waterloo
It’s usually a good sign when you see the locals frequenting a restaurant – then you can be sure that both the price and the flavour appeal to English tastes. Masters Super Fish is one of these establishments and serves wonderfully large portions. As well as chips, ketchup and tartare sauce, they also serve onions and gherkins on the side. There’s a restaurant area and a takeaway section, which often attracts a queue around lunchtime. The restaurant is located close to the London Eye. It’s just a 5–8-minute walk from the underground stations Waterloo or Southwark.

The food is fried in beef dripping, which gives it its incomparable flavour. Eating in and experiencing the authentic interior is an absolute must and value for money is ideal for the area.

The charm of fish and chips on the catwalk
In the current Autumn/Winter collection, we used the charm of the traditional fish and chip restaurant to bring across our collection theme “Fish ‘n’ Popscene” and the Brit Pop mentality that goes with it. We shot on location at the Fryer’s Delight; the red tables and the black-and-white tiles were in perfect harmony with the collection’s winter styles and colour tones. It was a great production with lots of attention to detail.
