Fish
Poppie’s is renowned for authenticity – and it’s little wonder, with born and bred
East-end proprietor, Pat ‘Pop’ Newland, at the helm. Pop’s career in the fish and chip business started in 1952 when, aged 11, he got a job on Roman Road cutting up copies of The Daily Mirror to wrap fish and chips in. With decades of experience behind him, ‘Pop’ founded Poppie’s. The shops are filled with retro memorabilia from Pop’s childhood, The uniforms channel a 1950s vibe, and the music is tailored to each shop. Dining in one of Pops restaurants is an experience with retro vibes and iconic looks from the decades. For instance, Seventies Formica and Anaglypta wallpaper will be just one of many pieces of kitsch decor on show.

    Had a reservation but the staff told us to wait at the line with the rest people, even with the ones not having a reservation. Mediocre food. Not worth the reservation or the wait.

    It was very crowded and the food was tasteless. We kept adding salt and vinegar but didn’t help. Fries were good. I wouldn’t go back. I think this is more for tourists.

    They didn’t know of our reservation and were very rude when we arrived and asked for our table. They only let us sit if we were quick to order and eat because they would close in one hour even thought we had a reservation at 9.00 pm and it was 9.05pm and we had a 7months baby that was sleeping in his buggy. Our diner was rushed for no reason seen that we left before 10pm.

    The Fish & chips was not as expected. even though i had a booking i still had to wait for some time before being seated. The fish looked good at the top but at the bottom it was soggy which is not what is expected from a good restaurant. the chips were also soggy and not the chunky ones as you expected. I was disappointed.

    This is a fantastic place to eat. It gets quite crowded and could benefit from loosing a couple of tables to make room. The staff are mixed, they are either very friendly playing with your kids or appear irritated that you have inconvenienced them. The food is really fresh with reasonable portions but is quite pricey with a service charge added to your bill. All in a firm 4star restaurant. I don’t give 5 as everyone can always do better!

    The food was nice. No veggies, but ok. When we arrived we had to wait for over 30minutes outside before we got in. When we came in, all the tables were empty… it’s a bit tricky to let people think it’s a super super busy place to eat. It is not.

    We took our Ukrainian refugee. who after 6 months in London, had not tasted Fish 'n Chips. Portions huge, very good. Have often used it for take away, but rarely eat in. good fun. Music at an acceptable level, not too loud.

    We wanted somewhere in Camden as we were going to a gig, the reviews seemed good so we booked for 5.15 Sunday evening. To be honest, it was cramped, the food was average at best, not a lot left to choose from. The service was good.

    Nice fish and chips, but a restaurant without a soul…… It seems that The waiters just felt it was just another day in the fish and chip place. No charm, no ambience, just a basic fish and chip restaurant with a few extra frills, and Shields on the wall, And quite an impressively decorated restaurant, in the same vein as the Hard Rock Cafe

    The food was great. The staff stand around whilst diners are eating, and watch which can be off-putting. The bill had a service charge which was optional but I think they should tell diners first before issuing bill, not everyone can afford to pay an optional service charge, and not all will know and notice it is on the bill.

    I know it's fish, and a very good one at that, but... would love to see a vegan option on the menu, maybe a more consistent salad? I was the only vegan in the group and ordered a couple of side dishes. My daughter would like to see the apple crumble back on the menu, instead of the apple pie.

    The food was good: I wouldn't say that it was the best fish and chips I had ever had but it was a good one (we all chose the plaice fillet and were all satisfied). The service and the restaurant itself were pleasant. My friends and I don't regret going there !
