The traditional East End chippy isn’t dead. It lives on, revived & revamped, in the form of Fish House in gentrified Victoria Park Village. The business has a takeaway on one side & a sit-down restaurant on the other, allowing it to service locals in search of a quick fish supper as well as the family parties that descend on E9 for an inter-generational weekend lunch. Dark-wood flooring & white-tiled walls are jazzed up by a startling close-up photo of an octopus. Expertly fried fish – be it cod, haddock, plaice, scampi, rock or skate, with proper chips – can be eaten in or out, with the requisite extras (pickled eggs, thickly buttered bread, & a banana split for afters: all present & correct). For more dressed-up occasions, there’s a list of seafood-friendly wines (rising to £22.20) & blackboard specials such as lemon sole with shrimp butter, & scallops with asparagus hollandaise.
