Maybe I got unlucky, but I had mild food poisoning (i.e. lasted only 4 days rather than more serious cases that can last over a week) from this place. I shared all my other meals from the 48 hours prior to eating this meal so there was no doubt it was this (and it wasn't novovirus either).

Called by for a fish and chip supper, with mushy peas, a gherkin and a pot of tea £13.60p. Good value and tasty.

Great fish and chips. Took quite a while to arrive but was worth the wait. Good piece of fish and nice big chips, all non greasy. And it came with a salad (or mushy peas). Good value, as it included a free coffee. Alternatively a glass of wine was £1. The seafood spaghetti was also good, but more expensive. Nice... More

Great selection of fish, grills and pies and the best chips anywhere in the city. Special mention to Aridi who always has a smile on her face and makes sure me and my colleagues are looked after and keep coming back, no matter how busy they are. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! :)

Best chippy in the local area by far. Staff are friendly, the standard is very high and portions are huge (for London!).

Typical fish and chips place. Very popular in the area especially on Friday at lunchtime. Food was good and cheap. We had to wait for a while to be served. Furthermore they brought the drinks with food, i.e. 20min later. I'm not disappointed and I will definitely advise it

I don't usually have fish and chips and certainly wouldn't go to a restaurant and have fish and chips - except for Kennedys. Great value amazing quality and really good prices. Where else can you get a free bottle of wine with fish and chips?? i can also recommend the Scampi and also the lemon sole which both come with... More

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
