It’s all change at this chip shop-cum-restaurant. While the tiles and takeaway prices of the chippy front space remain the same, the rear dining room has had a makeover. A long cream-coloured leather bench lines one side of the restaurant, and the rear wall is now all exposed slate, nicely mixing the chic and rustic. A jaunty soundtrack of Hellenic bouzouki music chirrups away in the background.

The menu has remained constant: a mix of fish and chips and Cypriot cuisine that sees side orders of pickled eggs sitting alongside dishes of moussaká. A portion of dolmádes was filled with a pleasingly moist tomato and meat mix in typical Cypriot style, and a portion of herb-packed sheftaliá was nicely smoky.

A Sunday offer of two courses for £10.95 sounded like good value. However, the serving of mixed starters was comically niggardly: a two-person portion of potato salad consisted of just one new potato cut into six chunks; and one course arrived with a side dish of only eight chips. Ordering à la carte has proven more successful in terms of portion size in the past.

We ordered takeaway to be delivered. Asked when was latest order time which we did. Food did come within time but was really disappointing and extremely dry. I realise it was the end of their day but we spent a lot of money and half was thrown away.

Went to George's fish and souvlaki restaurant on Saturday and I must say that we had a great nigh!!! The staff were really friendly and professional and the food was amazing. This was a recomandation even though we live in Surrey but the trip was well worth it.

Big shout to George and his crew.


Just been to Georges fish bar - (as a local, it was quite good if not lacking in customer service) but on this visit I have to agree with last review - over priced with small portions and very poor customer service. I will avoid this place in the future!

George's Fish & Souvlaki Bar is possibly the worst fish & chip restaurant i have ever visited. The fish was poorly cooked & oozed oil. The chips were definitely the worst ive ever had. Tasted old, very old. Can you believe this though: when the waitress asked "How was your food?" I replied: "Horrible", to which she said "Im pleased to hear that" .... shocking! Thats George's Fish & Souvlaki Bar for you. Safe to say we will NEVER return to this establishment again ALSO: If u read the other review here you will see that it is highly unlikely that the other reviewer gave it 5 stars. I suspect that the other reviewer gave it no stars. I have given George's Fish & Souvlaki Bar 1 star because i suspect that if I leave the stars section blank it will allocate 5 stars.
