Lovely food in here, traditional fish and chip shop style food. Can sit down or get it to take away. I sat in, they didn’t have a table available at the time but quickly found us one. Reasonable prices in here as well.

After a full day of sightseeing, we so looked forward to our fish and chips dinner, and was it ever good! Well worth a few minutes wait for the halibut to join our cod and chips (not 'fries'). Service was very friendly and portions were...More

Cute little restaurant, found while roaming the streets of London. Service was prompt, ordered the fish and chips, and the kidney and steak pie with a side of coleslaw, both of which were good, and came out rapidly. The kidney pies,to my surprise, were prepackaged...More

We had lunch here: fish (haddock) and chips with coleslaw. It was very tasty and not expensive at all. The service was good, but not superb.

Over many years (decades even) I must have sampled almost all the noted fish and chip establishments in central London. There are plenty of good ones, but I always gravitate back to the Halibut when I want a plateful that really feeds that particular craving...More

Chose this fish and chip place because of it was close to Westminster Abbey. I wasn't disappointed. This was my first British Fish and Chips.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
