The Golden Hind. London, United Kingdom

This is the place to enjoy some of the best fish and chips in London, and my husband and I have been regulars for many years. The Golden Hind has been serving customers since 1914 and is only on its fifth owner, so I dare say they have more than a little experience preparing this traditional dish!

The classic order is fried cod, chips and mushy peas. The fish is fresh, not frozen, and cooked to order (many places will simply serve you pre-fried fish that's been sitting under a hot lamp for ages), while the tartare sauce is homemade and the chips hand cut. You can also ask for your chips to be 'well done' as they tend to under-fry them here for some reason. But if ordered 'well done', they'll come out golden brown.

Despite recently expanding into the space next door, the restaurant is always busy, so do book in advance. They also do takeaway, but I think it's best to eat your fish and chips piping hot in the restaurant. And it's BYOB or Bring Your Own Bottle, which means you can take your own alcohol for a small corkage fee, as they don't have a licence to sell alcohol.

lunch Mon-Fri 12-15.00
