I don’t see why this place has so many high reviews. It was nice enough, but nothing special. My large Haddock seemed a similar size to regular haddock that I’ve had in many other places. The chips were very crisp, unlike the classic ‘soggy’ fish...More

This is more of a take out type place. We hit this place up while walking through the westminster part of the city. There wasn't much opened. The fish was good and fresh and well fried. The portions are sizeable. It's a good local hole...More

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,
