If you are not local, and want to try some great local fare this is your place. Eat where the locals eat. This place was within easy walking distance of our hotel and we wanted to do some fish/chips. Given the majority of the reviews it was obvious this low key restaurant was going to deliver on food and service. When we arrived there were at least six people in line getting take away, line out the door.

I had the scampi (shrimp) and chips and the hubs got the Haddock and chips. The service was on point, quick and very friendly. The food came fast, but not too fast and was fresh (never thought I would describe fried food as fresh but whatever) and super tasty. I had to try that HP sauce and I guess it was not bad... hard to describe. At any rate, we loved our meal at this local gem and the price including tip was fantastic (especially in contrast to other restaurants we tried on this trip).

Our favourite take away was served up with
michelin 3 stars, it was faultless. I was in a hurry, late lunch and what a surprise beautiful.
I consider myself an expert on making good chips so my marks on them should be in context. What potato they use I'd like to know. The fish batter too was perfect. Great to see a dish still being to carefully prepared thanks.

Great local chippie in Wesminster. There is nothing fancy about it with maybe 10 tables on the inside. Fish and chips fried to order. You know it's a good place when the locals come in and chat with the workers and the workers ask if they'll have their usual today.

Decent local fish and chips. Came at 7pm which was an hour before closing so I guess that's why the fish and the chicken felt a bit dry and soggy as it wasn't just out of the fryer but has been cooked a while ago. Overall service is good and fast, staff reasonably friendly too. Maybe best to come during peak times so food is hot and fresh

Good food! It is really one of the best fish & chips restaurants. The interior needs to be retouched but this becomes completely unimportant after you taste the food.
