SquareMeal Review of The Sea Shell

Some say this famous Lisson Grove chippie is ‘the best in London’; 40 years down the line, it’s certainly one of the better known outlets in town and gets regularly rammed with noisy crowds of tourists and families with raucous kids. The Sea Shell prides itself on sustainable sourcing and procures its catch exclusively from Billingsgate – whether its cod, haddock and skate or more exclusive Dover sole and sea bass. You can have your fish battered, fried in matzo meal or grilled – in which case new potatoes or mash might be preferable to chips. Fishcakes, fish balls, steaks, sausages and salads ring the changes, and desserts keep it sweet with spotted dick or apple strudel. If something stronger than tea is required, dip into the creditable wine list, order a beer or sip a Pimm’s.

Best fish and chips shop in London. Fish was fresh and portion was generous. Lots of families with children though, so be prepared for noisy environment,
