Squaremeal Review of Poppie's Fish & Chips Spitalfields ?

The 2012 London Olympics may have help to regenerate east London, but there are some parts that don’t need a shot in the arm – witness Pat ‘Pop' Newland’s legendary family-run chippie. Step into Poppies' white-tiled premises, and you're overwhelmed by wartime memorabilia, newspapers from yesteryear and a classic jukebox – although the food never plays second fiddle to the nostalgia. Hot seafood platters and homemade fishcakes are warm-up acts for “beautifully and generously prepared” fish and chips from sustainable sources (with homemade tartare sauce), plus free-range rotisserie chicken, pies and pasties. Cheerful, nattily dressed waitresses are as sweet as can be, and you can even brush up on your Cockney rhyming slang by memorising the phrases emblazoned on the walls. Finish with Cartmel sticky toffee pudding or apple pie.

Bad Customer Service

by   (1)

Dec 2015

I had an exchange of emails with Poppies about booking a table for 13 people on a Saturday night, a month before the actual day. I have to say they answered their email quite quickly saying they could accommodate us and there would be no problem with a table for 13 people and all I had to do was drop in with a deposit of £5.00 each, which I did on the 3 November (the table was for Saturday 28 November). I didn’t think to contact Poppies again as we had made no changes and they had not contacted...

Poppies, Spitalfields

by   bronze reviewer (7)

Nov 2015

Editor's pick Poppies, Spitalfields – 13 years living in the UK and now when you say Friday, I think fish and chips. But it need not be a Friday for fish and chips; certainly so, for Poppies. This place is filled almost every day of the week. Families, friends and even, tourists. And this is because of the glamour of Poppies merit. The interior is very simple but there it lots to look at; the wall space is not wasted. Populated with photos, miniature soldiers statues and cockney rhymes were engaging. Poppies...

This jewel of a true English restaurant is a singular find with first class food, in an area of London otherwise overwhelmed with foreign food eateries. Arriving at 8 p.m. with a un-booked a party of 5, we were soon found a table by the manager. Cheerful waitress service ensued, no wondering if /how we should catch their eye – we were very well attended. A great choice of traditional fish & chips beautifully and generously prepared really convinced our Italian guests of the qualities of British...

Editor's pick First of all, the fish is fab – moist, tasty and in the lightest but tastiest batter I've had in a long time. That said, we did have to wait quite some time before it arrived, so much so, that one of my lunch companions remarked that we may have been served quicker in the takeaway queue! The chips may well have been “chipped” on the premises, but we're not too sure where they left their taste. I got somewhat embarassed by how much table salt and vinegar I had to add, but even then, I really could...

    Andrea's Passions :: Poppies Fish & Chips: Hands Down the Best Chippy

    There is nothing better than munching down a (good) takeaway in your PJ’s, in front of the telly, with a friend or loved one when you fancy a cosy night in. Am I right, or am I right? Last Saturday, Michael and I treated ourselves to exactly that! Having adorned my pin-striped suit and picked a chick flick, all that was left to do was choose from today’s infinite options what cuisine we fancied. Having lived in East London for well over a year and heard only truly excellent things about Poppies, fish and chips became the menu for the evening rather quickly. Poppies is pretty famous in our end of London town, as one...
