We are determined to keep safe during this turbulent period. We have undertaken detailed risk assessments to work to mitigate the risk of Covid-19. One of the most important and notable precautions that we have taken is that we have taken our entire restaurant outside for a complete Al Fresco experience. You will be enjoying the best seafood in a beautiful outside space in Borough Market once again!

----

We love fresh fish.

Since 1998, my family has tried to share that love with all of our guests through our fishmongers, restaurant and street food.

Like our entire business, our restaurant focuses on getting the best fish and keeping things simple.

We source all of our other products from the Market and tend to only use seasonal produce.

If you love fresh fish, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff come to Applebee's and see what we are all about.

Really great food, highly recommend the cod main dish with samphire which was delicious.

There was a long wait between the bread and the starters and we were sat by the door which didn’t fully close so occasionally got a cold draught. However, it was a really enjoyable evening overall and when the food came out it was brilliant.

Rushed through each course and as starters were finished the main was put down, with no opportunity to have a break. Shortly after finishing the main, we were advised our table had been booked for the next sitting and we needed to move outside. 10 minutes later we were asked to move again to a place that was not heated and was cold. Not what I consider good service when you’re spending £100pp with drinks. Food was delicious and spot on, but considering the change of environment of hospitality restrictions, it felt they were overbooked and rushing customers.

Service was poor when the restaurant was not at all busy. Our main courses arrived 45 minutes after our starters and we were charged for a creme brûlée when neither of us had a dessert.

I would not recommend visiting during a busy time, but the food was great.

The restaurant needs to do something about the temperature, it was very cold. When we asked we were told, the heating isn't powerful enough to keep the place warm. They eventually moved us and brought a heater. Other than that, the food was nice!

Tier 2 eating - safe, outside, heated, fish very good, service likewise. Issue is prices are creeping up but why not - am glad they are still in business and I can support them.

Simple but creative and very well executed menu.
Starters:
1. Tuna tartar on crostini (excellent but would prefer it on a sourdough toasted thin slice).
2. Very good arancini (lobster), crispy and yet moist, the rice cooked to perfection.
Mains:
Crusted cod, with samphire butter. Cod was perfectly cooked, flaky, samphire not too overpowering.
2. Tuna steak with sautée small-chunk vegetables. Melt in the mouth tuna, really good. Sizeable portion as well.
Accompaniments:
1. Truffled mashed potatoes, really creamy and lightly seasoned with truffle oil.
2. Boiled green beans, crunchy and good quality.
Dessert:
We shared a crème brûlée with a hint of saffron and raspberry coulis. Was very good, crispy top, creamy underneath.
Will certainly return. Want to try the seafood platter.

Our food arrived cold and with no taste. I have been in this particular restaurant a year ago and the experience was completely different- food tasted amazing and we had an asking time. Sadly this time it was very different

What a way to end lockdown with amazing seafood lunch.
In the heart of Borough Market we dined in the outdoor area of the restaurant.

The food was fantastic - we order all the small plates. The oysters were amazing! and the tune tartare crostini was so filling we skipped the starters.

The seafood platter was defnitely worth the price! the prawns and scallops were delicious!

The service was fabulous as well. So friendly and attentive. Definitely will be going back!

My boyfriend and I went for dinner on the first Friday after lockdown restrictions lifted. The restaurant was fully booked so there was a good atmosphere but the staff clearly had a lot of customers to serve so it was slightly chaotic. Our table was 15 mins late and then we waited over an hour for our starter. However, the waiters recognised this without us complaining and offered a free round of drinks. When the starters arrived it was as though they had been rushed as the grilled octopus was chewy and the langoustine was over cooked. The main courses dishes (fish and chips and sea bass) were tasty. The manager recognised that our evening had been far from ideal again without us complaining and the bill arrived with a 25% discount, which we felt compensated us fairly and are grateful. I would return on this basis as I think we just got unlucky.

As always Applebee’s is a second home and my always go to for great seafood ;)))
Only small detail is that it gets really cold quickly with the door being open & closed all the time ...but think it unexpectedly dropped a few degrees last night ..hence I switched to a lovely bottle of red 🍷 can’t wait to go back in run up to Xmas!!

Great service. Couldn’t fault it. Just one snag - I didn’t know we only had the table until 8pm. That wasn’t made clear when I booked via Opentable (nor when I was contacted 3 times by email the day before, then text then phone on the day to re-confirm my booking) but overall, the restaurant was great.

Very good !

Excellent service ; The waitress looking after our table was very knowledgeable and attentive

For starter we shared the prawns crostini, the lobster arancini and starter portion of mussels which were all very tasty.

Mains : the cod was delicious. The spaghetti vongole , al dente (which is great) , however I was expecting the clams to be with shells but they were not. For me this takes a bit of the flavour out of this very traditional Italian dish, which is always been my favourite since I was a kid. For this reason only, I gave 4 stars instead of 5 to food

We will definitely go back to Applebees Fish restaurant after November lockdown as we enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere.
