FEBRUARY 2020: We’ve revisited the capital’s top chippies and are happy to report that they’re all in fine fettle. Soho’s Golden Union Fish Bar remains our fave in central London, but several neighbourhood spots also deserve a special shout – especially The Fish Lounge in Brixton, Seventeen in Balham and Sutton & Sons’ original branch in Stoke Newington.
Rare is a dish as comforting as a plate of fish and chips. When done right, that irresistible mixture of steamy, crispy fried fish and chunky potatoes, humming with salt and vinegar, is up there with London’s best dishes. There’s a chippie on every other street in London, so we’ve rounded up our favourite spots – from anachronistic British fish bars to those with vegan-friendly menus (yes, really). Hell, there’s good reason some even appear on our rundown of London’s best cheap eats. Some things just never go out of fashion.
Can't decide? We’ve selected five of the best in our video below:
