London fish and chip shop named one of the best in the UK

Fish and chips are a dish that many of us love and look forward to. As a fish and chips-loving nation, we take it very seriously. The batter must be perfectly crispy, the fish must be succulent and flaky, and the chips must have a nice crunch on the outside but soft on the inside – so you can imagine how good it would have to be to win an award.

A West London chippy has been crowned the tenth best in the country at The Fry Awards. There is no gold medalist as the best restaurants and fast food places were all put together.

The Fry Awards sent thousands of mystery diners out to fish and chip shops across the land. The judges marked each venue for the quality of its food, cleanliness, staff knowledge and professionalism – as well as other factors like social media presence.

They then devised a list of the best 50 takeaways and 10 sit-down restaurants. The winning takeaways had to score 96 per cent or over, and restaurants had to achieve 95 per cent and above.

What The Fish has four restaurants, but the most notable one is in Hammersmith at 262 King St. It found its way into the top 10 restaurants. A quick surf on their website and you’ll see that they only serve fresh fish that’s delivered to them on a daily basis.

A meal of haddock and chips at What The Fish will cost you a total of £11.50. That’s £9 for the fish and £2.50 for the chips.

TripAdvisor reviews would definitely suggest that this place is a gem. One happy diner wrote: “The cod was cooked to perfection with a crispy light batter and the fish was just moist it almost melted! The chips were crisp and not a drop of oil in sight! If you are ever in Hammersmith I thoroughly recommend you give them a try! Excellent food and lovely surroundings.”
