I'm not a tourist and know a good chippy when I see one. And this is definitely a good one. Chips are chips at the end of the day, but the fish is fantastic and cooked fresh by the owner. Staff are really friendly and welcoming. If you're anywhere near the Greenwich area definitely give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
Best Fish & Chips I've had. Greeted by very happy staff who cannot do enough for you. Service was fast and attentive. Food cooked fresh and fast. Reasonably priced too!
When visiting London, you won’t want to miss the Golden Chippy. Your search is over for “the best fish and chips in London.” Set aside 4 hours of your schedule, take the 30-minute river cruise from Westminster down the Thames to Greenwich. In Greenwich, take 1-2 hours at the Royal Observatory Greenwich (Prime Meridian, museum, and associated sights) then take a stroll over to the Golden Chippy. It’s a quiet 20-minute walk from the Royal Observatory through neighborhoods. Upon arrival, you’ll find a corner shop with a red awning , a walk-up glass case inside, a few seats, and some tables on the sidewalk. My husband and I opted to sit at a table outside and enjoy our meal. We shared the large cod plate, a side of coleslaw, and a side of pickled gherkins. Not only was every bit of food fabulous but the wait staff was attentive and genuine. The owner even strolled by each table to ask how we were doing. We didn’t leave one crumb on any plate and 100% agree that it was the BEST fish and chips in London…or anywhere for that matter. Being from Boston, we can enjoy fish and chips whenever we please. We would, however, make the trip year after year to the Golden Chippy. Do yourself a favor and take a stroll down the unbeaten path and uncover London’s best.
Amazing food, fresh ingredients and fantastic customer service. I had a great chat with one of the sons who works there. Loved it and would highly recommend. Great value food for the price as well.
Sorry, golden chippy, but the fish was dry and didn’t taste very fresh at all. I suspect all the amazing reviews are from tourists who don’t know any better. The chips were good though. Pretty average overall.
