We’re dedicating the rest of February to finding the best fish and chip shop in London.
The London Walks guides have cogitated and debated, and here are their recommendations…
Please feel free to get your own vinegary fingerprints all over the debate.
Pepe was first up, with a recommendation in the East End…
There is a new fish and chip shop in Spitalfields, called Poppies, it is 6-8 Hanbury Street. The chips are particularly excellent and they give you a modern day (passed by health and safety) version of newspaper to eat it in.
I pass it on my monthly Street Art tour.
From 5th May, the Street Art tour goes every Sunday. More info click HERE.
In the same manner, Nick’s in the same manor…
"Corner of Hanbury Street and Commercial Street for food and décor."
London Walks guide Justin adds…
“Perfect if wanting to avoid meat after a grisly Ripper.”

Pepe’s Rep Walk on Street Art has proven so popular that it’s going out every week from the 5th May. See the link above for more details. A savvy local, Pepe's got great connections – knows the scene as well as the artists themselves. It ends at a street artist's studio and gallery.
Nick, a swashbuckling National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, West End stage and silver screen actor (and Jack the Ripper on television!), is an authority on Indian cookery and a professionally qualified Greenwich Guide. Click HERE to listen to Nick guiding in The Painted Hall in Greenwich.
