Fish & chips flavour at the Golden Hind

Opened in 1914 by an Italian family, Golden Hind in Marylebone, serves one of the best recipes of this typical London dish. In a no-frills décor and friendly atmosphere among regulars who have made this place their daily stop, enjoy generous servings. If you must, you may ask for a steamed fish fillet, drizzled with herbes de Provence. Order your fish & chips with a large gherkin pickle which adds a nice sour touch. Different fish make up this dish. At the Golden Hind, the chef recommends cod or haddock. Either way, the fish is caught fresh in Grimsby harbour, in the Humber estuary.

Sit outside, right in the heart of Covent Garden. Enjoy watching the busy London passersby on each side of the small terrace as you wait for your treat.

North Sea Fish, a family affair

Bought back in 1977 by Ian Edward Beauchamp, the North Sea Fish was taken over a few years later by his wife. The family tradition continues today as their son now runs the business. The servings are huge, and one can choose between cod or haddock, coated in airy breadcrumbs. In pure tradition, this dish is served with fries presented in a small basket, but if you prefer, you may ask for boiled potatoes. Of course, the tartar sauce is homemade and the ketchup flavoured with vinegar.
