J Monks was recommended by some friends from England and I decided to try it out. It's strictly take-out and they have quite an extensive fish menu as well as many other favorites, burgers, meat pies, samosas, chicken, etc. The 2 piece haddock dinner I had was really excellent. The fish pieces were a really good size, the batter tasty and the french fries are like heaven. I also had a side order of English mushy peas. Great!
The cook was a very pleasant gentleman. It's open from lunch time through supper.

What can I say? Moved here 6 months ago and drove past this plaza thinking it was a bit 'dumpy'. My parents tried it and recommended it, now I won't go anywhere else. Price: reasonable; Quality: I haven't had piece of halibut that thick since being in New Brunswick. Haddock a good size piece. Chips they do extra crispy if you need. Pleasant owners serving. The place is CLEAN, TIDY, ORGANISED, menus on the chalkboard are legible! Crowded at lunch with kids from local high school gorging on poutine. Changes: needs to push the municipallity to let him put chairs/bench/covered seating, even if only seasonal (the benches outside are flimsy, and have a large wasp-drawing garbage bin in between them.
Forgot they have a great range of salads. Value AND Quality.... and I'm very pick about fish and chip places.
Next equivalent, perhaps a bit better due to atmosphere only ( a full sit down restaurant with beer, so not really a good comparison) is Olde York Fish and Chips on Laird St., Toronto.

Do not go here. The fish and fries were soooo greasy, it was actually seeping through the bag. The oil was not at the right temperature causing the fish batter to be soggy and gross! While waiting there were dance moms in there with their yoga bodies, I'm not sure how they will keep their bodies in shape with all of that nasty grease!!!

This is our goto place for fish and chips. The fish etc is always cooked how you request it and there are plenty of alternatives to select from, plus they have Mushy Peas to round out the British flavour.

Friendly staff and excellent value for money. The two piece fish and chips easily feeds my wife and myself. The fish pieces are so big they are put in a separate box from the fries. Nice homemade salads to complete the mill.
