This one of the best fish and chip, places in London. It has a restaurant as well, cheap and large portions.
Always full in the take-way and the restaurant is a lovely bistro style place, staff a good laugh. The Asian guy who owns it is very funny...
Three of us ate at Christy's Fish Restaurant last night and we had a superb meal at very reasonable prices. We chose from the fish specials on the board - two of us had lemon sole, deep fried in batter and one had scampi and chips - the fish was very fresh and moist. We were given a dish of smoked fish pate and shrimp to enjoy while ordering. An excellent bottle of wine completed the meal - none of us could manage a dessert afterwards. We will be back soon to sample the fish pie and skate wings! The dining room is tucked away at the back of a takeaway fish bar and unless you knew it was there, I guess you would drive past, but the dining room was very pretty with a bistro atmosphere, and I should imagine that at the weekends it would be buzzing with fish addicts like us.

The best fish and chips shop anywhere. I have tried other favourites in London, including Olleys in SE24 and the Seashell in Lisson Grove, and this beats them all. The fish is always succulent, the chips full of flavour and crisp. The prices are low by London standards and the service friendly and impeccable.

An excellent old school fish and chippy, Greek run, superb mushy peas, crunchy yet substantial chips, golden batter.
Fluorescent interior with liberal use of formica and dog eared posters advertising frying oils. Close proximity to the fabulous Uxbridge Arms boozer.
Hillgate Street, just off Notting Hill Gate.
A welcome haven for Wigmore Hall goers who don't fancy the hall's basement restaurant and can't afford the Wallace, in the Wallace Colection, Manchester Square. The Golden Hind is an art deco period piece which has thrived under a succession of Italian ownerships since the First World War. Booking is advisable; quality of the tucker and friendliness of the service reliable.

Straightforward, no-nonsense fish and chippy with both takeway and sitdown service, opposite trendy Lambs Conduit Street and the Holborn cop shop. Popular with cabbies and barristers alike despite the bum-numbing inconvenience of the bench seating at formica-topped tables fixed feeding in feeding stall fashion. Fresh fish, well-chosen big spuds, decent cooking oil, big portions and low prices keep it very, very busy. Unlicensed, but no corkage charge.

A good variety of fish - huge haddocks, crispy cods and well-battered salmon. Quality mushy peas and gherkins, too. Prices are, as they say, reassuringly expensive. But the portions are to die for — eat the lot in one sitting, and you probably will.

Good range of fresh fish always really well coooked in beef dripping and the best chips I've tried in a long while. Hilarious staff (though not always intentionally). Worth the queues if you are craving a saturated fat batter-crunch marvellous takeaway. Fish Bites come highly recommended.
Portsmouth Road, Thames Ditton - just outside Kingston.
Olleys is simply the best fish and chip shop in south London, if not the world, and it's got the awards to prove it. It's had positive reviews from everyone from the Financial Times downwards...
Conveniently situated next to Brockwell Park, and near to Herne Hill station, it offers great service, a wide range of exquisitely cooked fish and high standards of cleanliness. It has a proper restaurant but the true glory is phoning in a takeaway order and reliving one's youth with perfectly battered fish in paper...

On a dark evening last November, my husband and I stumbled upon this takeaway on our way back to our hotel. Brightly lit and with the smell of fish and chips wafting out into the cold night air we went in and were served by the friendliest young man in London (a huge Tottenham supporter). Freshly cooked, the fish was moist, the batter crispy, the chips golden, the servings generous and the price cheap. We ran back to our hotel with our wrapped dinner and ate every morsel. There is also an eat-in restaurant beside the takeaway which was doing a brisk business.

Great no frills restaurant or takeaway, with fantastic battered fresh fish and thick-cut chips. Also recommend the mushy peas and fish cakes.

Just up the road from trendy gastropub The Eagle and around the corner from the cosmopolitan tastes of Moro, but a timewarp away, the family-run Golden Fish Restaurant has tiny faux wooden formica tables and benches that give you about as much elbow room as an in-flight meal. Still the best mushy peas I've had this side of the Watford Gap, though, great hunks of lightly golden cod or haddock, and perfectly formed chips.
102-104 Farringdon Road
Best chippie in north London - everyone raves about Toff's in Muswell Hill, but the fish at George's is better and everything is expertly cooked to order. Be prepared to wait a few minutes - it's worth it.

The best fish & chips on the planet, real food made the traditional way. Lightly battered flaky fried cod and perfectly cooked chips. Oh ... and the mushy peas are a 'must try'.
