Bought take away fish and chips. The customer service was awful, rude and slow. The fish and chips were expensive for the average taste and the portions were small. Will not be recommending to anyone nor visiting again

Went here for lunch. Expensive (~£9.50 for cod and chips) and the cod was really small. The chips portions was a good size though. Quality/taste and service was good. I recommend Fishers of Fulham or Seafish in Angel as cheaper (~£7.50) and larger portioned places...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods

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
