SquareMeal Review of Fish Club

If only all chippies were like this. Sparklingly fresh, sustainably sourced fish are cooked to order here. You can choose traditional fish & chips – with coley, haddock or fishcakes as the star attraction – but the menu encourages customers to try something different: prawn and chorizo kebabs, perhaps, or squid and cuttlefish with sweet chilli sauce. Crayfish cocktail or oysters might provide the opening to a meal, and a glass of wine or two (from a limited but well-chosen list) the lubrication. The picture isn’t entirely rosy: diners can get cramped in the small room at the back, and occasionally there’s a wait to be served (all this cooking to order takes time). Most people opt for takeaways. There’s a roomier branch in Clapham High Street too.

Fish Club is for fishes and not pies and their kind (they've been advertising the arrival of pies on the London Underground for sometime now). Of course, if you are fond of a onion feast inside your pie you might like their steak and ale pie better than me. I appreciate the fact that they have something for their not fishy customers, but Fish Club does their, grilled, battered and fish cakes best. They have battered haloumi and wonderful salads for those who enjoy greens. The battered fish are perfectly golden, fluffy and flaky. The grilled variants are melt-in-the-mouth fresh and the fish cakes are light and never too oily. I like their clean and simple decor and the canteen style seating at the Clapham Highstreet branch. The Battersea branch is slightly smaller but they offer eat in, takeaway and home delivery services. The Clapham Highstreet branch is more popular for the less lazy eat in customers who also take away bags of food for their friends and family. This also means that the staff are sometimes rushed, but you will be served before you start fretting!

Pricey but oh so worth it for the best fish & chips in town. Tuna steak with sweet potato chips is my top recommendation, but really you can't go wrong. Decor is humble, shared canteen style tables & benches and the staff are always cheerful without being cheesy.
