More than 255 million portions of chips are sold in fish and chip shops each year so it's safe to say we like 'em. Fish and Chips is a traditional English dish so you want to try it at least once but you want the best. So, where do you go? Well, it's been hard but I've tried out loads of fish and chips shops and restaurants and have chosen this list of the Best Fish and Chips in London.
Sea Shell of Lisson Grove has been around for 30 years. There is a restaurant and a takeaway fish and chips shop. Sea Shell has a good reputation and is popular with locals and visitors so be prepared to queue. I recommend getting a takeaway and going to sit in Regent's Park which is only 5 minutes walk away.
The Golden Fish Bar on Farringdon Road, EC1 has been around for 150 years and is still popular. There is a restaurant and a takeaway fish and chips shop. It has a real traditional working class feel about it and is very popular so I recommend getting there early for lunch.
Masters Super Fish is close to The Old Vic Theatre and the Imperial War Museum. The restaurant may not look nice but the food is good quality and the portions are massive. The fish comes daily from London's Billingsgate Fish Market. Eat in the restaurant and you'll receive complimentary prawns and pickles.
The Golden Hind serves good quality fish and chips in a small unassuming restaurant in central London. It's a small place and is always pretty busy. While there, check out the decommissioned art deco fryer by F Ford of Halifax and the celebrity photos on the walls.
Rock & Soul Plaice is London's oldest fish and chip shop. Established in 1871, Rock & Soul Plaice is popular was locals and tourists all day long. The outdoor tables are lit by strings of lights in the trees which makes it a good choice for a summer's evening.
