SquareMeal Review of The Rock & Sole Plaice

Forgive the cheesy punning name and get ready for a true Brit experience at one of London’s oldest chippies. The classic combo of crisply battered cod, chips and mushy peas is a deservedly popular first choice for most customers, though other species (haddock, halibut and of course rock, sole and plaice) make fine alternatives if you’re in the mood. It doesn’t offer the most consistent frying in town and prices are on the steep side, but a steady stream of locals join the hungry tourists at picnic benches on a shady corner of Endell Street for slap-up lunches washed down with cans of pop or bottles of beer. Functional tables inside and berths hidden down in the gloomy basement are less appealing, although service is snappy enough.

Built in 1871, the basement room in what is now The Rock & Sole Plaice used to serve as a meeting place for community volunteers to plan where provisions would be distributed throughout London during World War II. Now, The Hemingway Room, as it’s known, can be hired for private lunches and dinner for up to 34 guests, who will have access to a private bar within the space.
