The Best Fish and Chips in London – The Best Places to Check Out

After combing the streets of the capital, we have compiled a list of where to find the best fish and chips in London.

When you think of certain cultures and certain cuisines, which foods and dishes first spring to mind for you?

India is famous for its curries, Spain is famous for its Paella, and the UK is largely famous for its fish and chips.

There’s just something quintessentially British about fish and chips that simply cannot be beaten, particularly outdoors in the sunshine or by the seaside.

If you happen to be in London and are craving fish and chips, you’ll be very pleased to hear that there are numerous fish and chip shops, cafes and restaurants in the nation’s capital that offer delicious fried fishy goodness to hit the spot.

For the fish and chip lovers amongst you, here are the best places, or should that be Plaices (sorry, bad pun alert) that we think you’ll love.

Bonnie Gull

Address: 21a Foley Street, London W1W 6DS

The first fish and chips offering we have for you is the Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack.

Located in Fitzrovia, if you enjoy true British fish and chips cooked the way they should be cooked, this is the place to be.

Here, you’ll find North Sea caught beer battered Haddock and chips, fried in beef dripping.

The batter is amazingly crispy as it is made from ice-cold beer and Japanese tempura batter mix for a light and decadent crunch.

Most would agree that mushy peas belong with fish and chips, but homemade ketchup? Well, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! Don’t forget to give your fish a generous squeeze of your caramelized lemon slice to complete the taste.

Golden Union

Address: 38 Poland St, Soho, London W1F 7LY

Located in Soho, this chippie has a selection of sustainable fish options, all cooked to order and fried in their secret homemade batter recipe in a unique blend of fats.

From the outside, this fish and chip shop won’t win any awards for décor, but once you taste the light and fluffy golden chips and the sweet and meaty fish, you’ll realise that taste is much more important.

If you don’t fancy fish for whatever reason, there are also delicious hot pies on offer too.

Toff’s

Address: 38 Muswell Hill Broadway, Muswell Hill, London N10 3RT

Not just considered one of the best fish and chips shops in London, this eatery has been named the UK’s best fish and chip shop on more than one occasion. So, you know that you’re in for something special when you eat at Toff’s.

Located in Muswell Hill, Toff’s has been around since the late 1960s’.

It is a no-nonsense, no-frills, does what it says on the box chippie that offers crunchy, light, non-greasy batter, meaty and succulent fish and light and fluffy golden chips and we love it.

The Chipping Forecast

Address: 29 All Saints Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 1HE

This fish and chip restaurant deserves a mention purely for the name alone, though thankfully the food served here is also exceptional!

Now located in Notting Hill and Soho after moving from Berwick Street, here you’ll find a nautical chic décor and a selection of sustainable fish from the stunning county of Cornwall.

Made with Brewdog beer batter, and served with sides such as mushy peas, curry sauce, and pickled eggs, you’ll be blown away by the food on offer here.
