If you want to enjoy the freshest fish this is the place! We enjoyed our lunch here and my portion of scampi and chips although delicious was enormous. The service was excellent and we will go back soon.

We were at the restaurant. Excellent fish, good service, not expensive for the quality being offered, compulsory choice if you want to eat fish in London!

This is local to where I live and is consistently comforting whenever fish and chips cravings happen! I always have the lemon sole goujons and find them and the cod bites crispier than the cod whole fish and chips. Nice place with a homely feel....More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
