The people were warm and friendly and the atmosphere was good, but I wouldn't say that the food was great. We had starters of fish soup and prawns - both "OK" but nothing fantastic, then both had the fish pie, which was Ok but not...More

I’ve been here a couple of times in the last eighteen months and it has been fine. Quite expensive for what it is and the front of house personnel kept changing (a warning sign), but fine. Dropped by last night at 9pm: two tables occupied,...More

Geales always offer good food, service was a bit rushed this time but I really do care more about the food, so a big thumb up, will be back soon

Anybody who remembers the family-run Geales in its heyday; a no-frills place that was sometimes unpredictable, often chaotic and always terrific value, will be very disappointed to encounter it now. The bean-counters have moved in now, with an eye on the unwary tourist to boost...More

Geales has been a fixture in Notting Hill Gate for longer than the forty plus years I've eating and drinking there. It's had its ups and downs with changing times and different owners, but it's still serving up good classic fish and chips. Prices have...More

Geales has been London's most loved neighbourhood fish restaurant for over 70 years. Since 1939 this reputable restaurant has been a firm favorite with devoted locals and celebrities' alike. Geales offers a menu that retains the great British chip shop mentality... No frills, just fresh fish and fabulous service. The updated historic site provides a rustic yet chic local diner with a relaxed, nostalgic nod to the brand heritage.
