Authentic East End fish and chips. Nothing more, nothing less. Channelling a 50s vibe, Poppies serves up top quality fare made from some of the freshest ingredients around. Pat 'Pops' Newland (the proprietor) has been working in the fish and chip industry since 1952, and he brings all that experience to bear on his tasty menu. Cod, haddock, mackerel, seafood platters, skate and calamari are all available, and you can either have your fish grilled or fried, whichever you'd prefer. There's even jellied eels for that old-school feel. With all the seafood caught using sustainable fishing practices and filleted by the in-house fishmonger every morning, Poppies is just as progressive as it is tasty. And not a soggy fish or oily chip in sight.
Ready to take your fish and chip eating to the next level? Hook offers an updated take on the traditional fish dish. Hailing from Dublin, their food is innovative, vibrant and tasty as hell. The fish is seasoned with handcrafted herbs and spices and cooked with tempura batter and panko breadcrumbs, giving it a unique flavour that captures the essence of this beloved classic, while also giving it a 'new-school' kick that just makes the whole dish sing. Ready when you are.
Sutton & Sons
For an all-round seafood experience, Sutton & Sons is the way to go. They serve tasty and traditional fish and chips alongside some of the most mouth-watering seafood delicacies around, including rich lobster, juicy prawns and zesty calamari. Crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside, this is moreish food made with love, made in London, made for you.
With over 100 years' experience, it's no wonder the Golden Hind has fish and chips down to a science. Cooked in homemade batter, it's the freshness that hits you first. Then the taste. The cod is so soft it breaks apart in your mouth, while the treacle sponge (served with lashings of syrup) couldn't be any more indulgent. It's probably fair to say that the Golden Hind hasn't changed too much over the years, but with food like this, it really doesn't need to.
Kerbisher & Malt
Kerbisher & Malt honours the fine tradition of British fish and chips. Strip away all the bells and whistles, this is fish and chips as it's meant to be. The chips are twice-cooked (for twice the yum) and the simple menu delivers exactly what it says on the tin – tasty food, fresh catches, big flavour. Dinner's sorted, then.
