There’s a captain’s-cabin feel to this no-nonsense fish & chippie, which has been serving south London locals for 20 years. If you’re not planning to rush home with a takeaway, settle at one of the pine tables & order outstanding renditions of battered fish, chips & mushy peas. Cod & haddock are still the most popular choices, but eco-conscious diners can opt for hake or mahi-mahi, & calorie-counters can have their fish steamed or grilled, served with new potatoes or salad. Curiously, there are some celebrity-endorsed combos like the ‘Cilla Black Experience’ (haddock & chips, prawns, scampi, pickled onions), but why mess with the classic formula? The short wine & beer list matches the food, & includes oak-aged Innis & Gunn ale: ideal with haddock or lemon sole.
