Squaremeal Review of Vintage Salt Islington ?

Vintage Salt Islington closed on 01/17

Posh – but not too posh – this trendy Islington chippie is reckoned to be bang on the money, not surprising since it’s the brainchild of Des McDonald (a former CEO of Caprice Holdings). Vintage Salt (along with its City sibling) offer high-quality fish and chips (and a few more things besides) in a retro-style space that matches painted panelling with modern artworks, smart leather seats and simple wooden tables. The fish is fabulous (haddock in a beery batter, maybe), but if you like your seafood as naked as the day it was born, choose rock oysters (when available), diver-caught scallops with seaweed and hazelnut butter or roast cod with creamed sprouts. Meat eaters might fancy beef rib pie with mash and parsley liquor, while mulled wine trifle is a typically traditional pud. Drink beers from the Camden Town Brewery or pick from a short wine list with everything available by the glass.

From the amazing reggae music, friendly and efficient staff, great food and great atmosphere. after a hard morning demonstrating products in a local store Vintage Salt was just the place to be. Fantastic welcome and really great staff. Food was served hot and very tasty. I would recommend to anyone
