Since its inception back in 2011, Hook has been a byword for super-fresh seafood and sustainability, its fish coming straight to the restaurant from the boats every day. A recent refit of the Camden dining room has also seen a shift in the menu focus. There’s still the fish and chips the place is famous for – catch of the day (cod and seabream on our visit) in a variety of flavoured tempura batters or seasoned panko options – but there’s also a more varied menu for both starters and mains, with inspirations from all over the world. The vegetable tempura, drizzled in honey and served with a ginger dipping sauce, is not to be missed, but aside from the odd meat option, it’s fish all the way. And where there isn’t fish, there’s seaweed, infused into the cream for the mashed (not mushy) peas, flavouring the house-made pickles, and sprinkled over the chips, which are really more like wedges, but hey, your traditional Friday night fish supper this most definitely isn’t.

Such a missed opportunity of a restaurant. Poor customer service, mediocre cooking at best. They are trying to imitate high quality sustainable fish restaurants like Lure Fish Kitchen, but running it like a tired mid-market chain restaurant that hates customers.
The menu is badly thought out. Embarrassingly overcooked sea bream. I ordered some tacos to takeaway for my wife at home and cancelled the order 60 seconds later, but because the chef had “started preparing” some tacos (no evidence of this from the open kitchen), they insisted on charging me full price for something I didn’t want. Pretty silly, really. Ruining an already “meh” customer experience by just being ridiculous.
