SquareMeal Review of
Marylebone’s much-fêted fish & chip shop has settled into its sideways extension, allowing more punters to enjoy its famous frying. The add-on echoes the original room’s plain interiors (think
tiled floors and wood panelling) and the advice remains the same throughout: if you want to enjoy the main event to the full, swerve the calamari and king prawn starters and refuse the jam
sponge with custard for afters. Cod, haddock, halibut, plaice and rock salmon – plus homemade fishcakes – are all on offer; the beautifully golden batter has been known to discharge rather too
much oil, but the accompanying chips and peas are impeccable. Ever-present crowds generally obscure views of the famous vintage fryer, and queues often stretch out of the door. Service is
brisk, and there’s a BYO policy for those eating in.
