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.
Best fish and chips ever. Trip advisor didn't lied about this place.
You should visit The Golden Chippie, order "all-in" menu (fish, chips, mushy peas) and give them a generous tip if you'll love the meal as much as we did.
We were really happy with the food and also with the personnel and owner himself. There is really friendly atmosphere in this place.
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.
This has been my local chippy now for a while, the fish is always super fresh and chips are lovely. The staff are always friendly and ready with a smile. This place is a must visit nothing beats good old fashioned British chippy grub! Top marks!
Fish lives up to the hype!
On our last day in London before departing on a bicycle trip to Amsterdam, we found ourselves staying at a hotel just around the corner and looking for English fish and chips. Just our luck that Golden Chippy was nearby! We got a table, ordered haddock and cod plus a few side dishes, and enjoyed every bite. The batter was crispy, the fish moist, the chips perfectly done, and the service was great. Excellent meal!
