We’re yet to find someone who doesn’t love good ol’ fish and chips, but even if your tastes do err on the classier side, the capital has plenty of seafood-celebrating restaurants to choose from.
Read on for SL’s cream of the crop, from the most innovative fish restaurants to new pop-ups that prove you don’t need to be living by the coast to enjoy fresh fish.
Eating lobster on the side of the street, oh the irony. Bob’s Lobster is without a doubt one of the coolest dining experiences in London right now. Offering a selection of lobster rolls, burgers and even Lobster Eggs Benedict, this is one posh pop-up you don’t want to miss out on.
Bonnie Gull Seafood Bar
Bringing the beach shack to the city, Bonnie Gull Seafood Bar offers a menu of fresh seafood caught locally in the UK, including Smash Your Own 1kg Crab, Beer-Battered Haddock with Beef Dripping Chips, and Fresh Oysters from the Raw Bar, all of which can be washed down with a Bonnie Mary.
Fish Market Fisherman's Cottage
D&D Restaurants have turned an old factory into a mega-complex of dining, drinking and retail. Our favourite is Fish Market, a restaurant headed up by chef Barry Macmillan, who cooks sustainably caught fish in clean, light and fresh flavours. On your next visit, dine out on the Fisherman’s Cottage Terrace, where you can enjoy a glass of white wine and take in city views.
