had oysters, that were not very fresh, same for the scallops, sole was untasty and bland. Service was good, though. Don't understand the hype around this place. There are way better seafood places in London.

Tacky decor and unprofessional staff. The famous fish & chips is a big disappointment. They bring it too greasy with a soft batter. The haddoc was strangely flacky and the chips were also greasy and soft. Very loud place. Not to repeat.

Yes I would reserve a table. Fri/sat are fish & chips nights and if there are no tables there is not much else very close by for you to go to.
