The Catch of Chiswick

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This upmarket fish and chippy on Chiswick High Road brings a bit of sophistication to the enduring British favourite. True, there's a classic frying range keeping things warm under halogen lights but there's a bistro feel to the restaurant proper - wine bottles fill a cabinet, the menu is handwritten on blackboards and the wood flooring is positively brushed.
Fresh fish - deep fried with egg matzo batter, or grilled - is their bread and butter, with cod, haddock, rock, skate, halibut steaks and sea bass some of the swimmers on offer. They're served with a side salad and chips of course. It's not just about the fish though, with burgers, sausages, chicken, pies and various salads bulking out the menu. Takeaways prove popular, too.
Keenly priced beers sit alongside a short wine list covering well-known regions from across the globe. More than half are available by the glass, too.
