After a bit of research I came across a blog of the best fish and chips in London and Fryer's Delight was highly rated. To work up an appetite I walked a mile to get here after work last Friday to grab a takeaway. I was bitterly disappointed. It was absolutely disgusting. The fish didn't resemble anything I'd eaten from a fish and chip shop before - and I've had lots of fish and chips! It didn't cost the earth but was a miserly offering. It had a greasy, soggy batter which looked like it had been under a heat lamp for days, never mind hours. The chips were limp, greasy and definitely not fresh from the fryer. Fryer's Fright more like.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS; the place looks & feels old, but not in a good way. It's fairly cheap so I gave it a try as fish'n'chip outlets are not that common in the city. The chips were hard & had a synthetic oil taste, but worse than that the sausage I ordered was undercooked so I returned the lot. The older Mediterranean guy behind the counter who refused to give me a refund was rude & argumentative. Save your money & time, you're better off in McDonalds.


Poor chippy the more expensive chippy in endell street is much better!!


Worse chippy ever... Overcooked fish and cheap continents they charge you a bomb for! Don't get the hype at all, was very disappointed


I'm from San Francisco, where we actually have one great chippy. When in the UK we are looking for better. It wasn't until Fryer's Delight that we found one. Exceptional cod and chips! Fine textured, crunchy batter. The staff was English when we were there - and very helpful and informative. We hope to make it to another chippy or two on this trip, but we Have To get back to Fryer's Delight,
