When in London its must to visit this typical fish and chip shop. The fish is really fresh and very tasty. Typical English food at its best and very good value for money. Highly recommended

Friends who live in London recommended this place. So glad we ended up here. Really crispy Cod with great chips. My wife ordered a vegetarian pie which was surprisingly delectable. If you're in the area, make sure to make a quick visit :)

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

This traditional fish and chip restaurant has received great reviews from the critics. locals and tourists alike. With afternoon offers and home made pies and sides, this restaurant is a must for anyone who lives or is visiting London.
