Went to the stall in Camden Market: Had the cod bites and and chips which £5.30 and massive! Four large pieces of cod and the same amount of chips that you would get with a normal meal. Cod was a little dry (however I did go to get it quite late in the afternoon so I assume it under the heat lamps for a while) and all in all, hugely good value.

Really good food here! A little pricey but the portions are large! Also such nice decor and the staff are really good!

Food good, super fun decor its silly 70s Abigails Party style but would be great for a big group lunch if you don't mind being super tired after from all the delicious beige plate.

I had the battered sausage which as well as being great for innuendo if you're lunching with the right crowd was perfectly cooked- very crispy, salty and actually good quality tasting meat within. 

Portions are huge, theres a cute take out window, there no reason why this place shouldnt be as successful as its brick lane bro.


I went to the Camden chain of Poppies Fish & Chips last week and wasn't disappointed! I'd visited the Spitalfields restaurant in the past and I would say this was even better. We shared a traditional cod and chips and a haddock and chips, both hot, fresh and delicious. However, the staff weren't particularly chipper and we got the feeling they wanted us to hurry up, but that can be forgiven because...chips. The only negative was a bizarre doll display!. The toilets were a strong 7/10!

pricey, the calamari was absolutely awful I told to the waitress and she goes: "I knew it, I said we should not serve it but they did not listen to me." - it is not a way they should run a business. Fish was tasteless, chips were lukewarm. not going back.

Big new fish & chip place in Camden - clearly aimed at tourists, although quite why it's designed as a 1950's American diner (jukebox etc) I'm not sure. The food isn't special - didn't look like they were cooking the fish to order (ours was just sitting in the hot box) and the chips were very bland and plastic. Pricey compared to other options round there and not really for locals.
