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.

I work in a local business and visit this local fish and chips restaurant with my clients regularly. It's always been pricey, but I gathered that was normal in covent garden. I was shocked yesterday to discover that the prices had risen astronomically - a fish cake that used to be £6 was now double the price - £12!! And the fish and chips itself had gone up from £14.50 to £19.50!!!!
Not only this, but the portion sizes had got smaller!
I'd booked a table for 1pm for a party of 4 and it was clear upon arriving that no table had been reserved for us and we were left waiting for one to vacate. With no apology or explanation. Then a service charge was added automatically!
This place is a massive tourist trap and scandalously overpriced- you can get fish and chips in my local takeaway for about £7. Tourists - DO NOT PAY. £20 for fish and chips in London- you are being conned.
Needless to say I shan't be going again.
