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.

I went here with my partner for a good fish and chips and we were not disappointed.
The staff could be friendlier, but the food was very good and cheap!
They have plenty of choice and you don't have to wait too long for your food.

We found this place accidentally and decided to give it a try! I ordered a calamari with chips and it was excellent!!! The burgers were not so great though. The staffs were very nice giving us tips on which sauce to go with which kind of food!! If you like fish and chips it is a good place to go to!

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 that only properly prepared British fish and chips can satisfy.

This may only look like a dead basic chippie but the quality and consistency is rock solid and both the fish and the chips are pretty much perfect in the traditional manner. No fancy stuff here, just the real deal that hits the spot every time.
