The host was a pleasure and the food was delicious. My husband, two children and I came here for holiday but I would come here every day if I could. Thank you for a wonderful meal!

The Chipping Forecast is a local Notting Hill gem. The best fish & chips I've ever had - and a gluten free option! I have been many times and will continue to return.

Fresh fish makes all the difference - these folks seem dedicated to sourcing only the freshest fish which provides a superlative tasting experience from a normally pedestrian product. It you want to visit the heights of fish & chips, this restaurant not to be missed. Service was very good but it was a small crowd as it was a Sunday night, so not really a test.

Ridiculously overpriced, crazy to pay extra for chips in a fish and chips restaurant! House wine appalling and expensive. £45 a head for a basic supper.

Though it is said fish “and” chips, chips were not included and is an additional of £4. Then the waiter asked what sauce we want, whether tartare or mayo, and we said tartare for both the two dishes we ordered. When the bill came, we realized that the sauce were £3 each but we were not informed when asked by the waiter. So we paid £6 in total just for the sauce! And of course £8 just for two portions of fries for both. Very pricey for what it is.

We had a lovely time at the Chipping Forecast. The decoration is lovely, well balanced between modern trendy touches and an authentic more rustic vibe. The food is amazing, we had the classic Fish&Chips, the batter is AMAZING and the chips are huge and delicious. Huge portions for a very reasonable price ! The restaurant serves Brewdog draft beer, which we love so this was a great surprise. Staff was very friendly and the playlist was deliciously retro with unavoidable classics for the Millenials generation ^^ definitely recommend !

For authentic fish & chips in a charming neighborhood setting, you can't beat the Chipping Forecast. Superb fish, responsibly sourced. Delicious chowder, like my grandfather used to make. For non-seafood lovers, the burger is remarkably good. And the chips are the best I've had, bar none.

I ordered the salmon cakes and chips.
Absolutely incredible! The salmon cakes were fresh, light and perfectly seasoned. The triple cooked chips were chunky and crisp. The service was superb, friendly and cheerful. The food did take a long time but ir was worth the wait. It was a Thursday evening and both upstairs and downstairs were full! The guests at the next table said they are regulars and the fish and chips are the best in town. Slight downside, the house white gave me a headache the next morning but that was probably my own allergic reaction. I was so full the next day!
I am a visitor here so i will come back next time I am here!

Delicious fish, and some of the best chowder I’ve ever had. I’ve also tried the burger and was impressed. Most fish & chips shops don’t have this kind of menu variety, or if they do the other dishes are lower quality. That’s certainly not the case here! Warm cozy atmosphere, and wonderfully friendly staff. This is quickly becoming a favourite neighborhood spot for us!

We had a wonderful meal at the Chipping Forecast, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere was perfectly casual and cosy for the Sunday evening on which we visited. The fish was wonderfully fresh and and the choice of drinks on offer complemented the meal perfectly. The Chipping forecast's commitment to English produce added an element of authenticity and passion to the whole experience. Would recommend.
