The guys were great about the Gluten Free options as my daughter is a coeliac. It really was great-staff brilliant but it was pricey.

Delicious, lively venue, staff attentive and incredibly patient as always. Three stars simply because I like to dine here on my own and never get to get a table but a stool squeezed between two by the uncomfortable counter next to the entrance. Besides, it’s winter, cold and venue always packed as customers rather wait inside and there’s little room around the till.
The fact that some of us dine alone shouldn’t be an excuse not to be offered a better seat given that the bill is a ‘paint-point’ for everyone, regardless..... Thank you.

Really nice restaurant with fantastic staff. Food was excellent apart from the batter on both the crispy squid and the cod which should have been better than it was. Be aware that the prices are higher than those shown on the menu visible on OpenTable (This is something they really need to sort out)

We went for the first time with a friend visiting from the US. Was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our classic cod and chips. Staff were also accommodating with request to substitute for cheese truffle chips. We were less impressed by the wine. Not bad, just not good either. Left very full indeed.

Amazing fish & chips, but also the crab toast and the desserts were delicious. Service was perfect. Reservation is recommended because there are always people waiting outside.

Hands down the best F&C’s in London.
From top to bottom the quality of the ingredients and cooking set it apart from anywhere else.
Both the Cod & Haddock are the best I’ve ever had in a chippy, same for the chips/battered sausage and sauces.

Doesn’t really get much better.

Food was lovely however, I am coeliac and ordered the fried halloumi with chips and curry sauce. I Asked if they were cooked separately and all I was told was that they are gluten free which didn’t really answer my question. Later that evening I had severe tummy pain and sickness (all feelings I’ve had when I’ve been ‘glutened’).
I feel they maybe weren’t as careful as they should’ve been in the kitchen. A shame because the food was lovely and my boyfriend who isn’t coeliac really enjoyed it.

Entertaining an Australian friend who has Coeliac disease. She requested traditional fish and chips in London but objc needed gluten free. Cant recommend Mayfair Chippy highly enough. The mushy pease are to die for. Batter light and chips delicious. Apparently the gluten free batter was also excellent.

Nice smile upon arrival and quickly seated in a pleasant room towards the rear. Friendly and informative server who explained all the options. Small but adequate wine list to accompany the food. Well prepared and presented fish dishes, especially the halibut.

Not cheap, but what is in London. Would happily recommend and happily return.

The fish and chips were exceptional. Crispy mild fish. Also had fresh oysters. Fresh everyday. They were delicious. Place was a little hard to find for someone out of town. Lots of construction around the park.

Food, service, beer... everything was exceptional! Oysters, fish and chips were amazing, not to mention the homemade tartar sauce, mashed peas and curry sauce! I'm not a fan of peas, but these were delicious. The wife and I really liked this place. We're here for a week and plan on coming back before we go home to Sicily. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation. Your taste buds will thank you!

The fish and chips were crispy and extremely delicious. We started with the crab salad and the beet salads which were also extremely tasty and generous dinner portions.

We highly recommend Mayfair Chippy!

The food was very good.
We ordered the Mayfair classic, a cod and chips (which by default came with tartare sauce too), the green leaf salad and the cornish crab salad as starter.
The fish and the chips were very good, crunchy and tasty, and you could easily tell how fresh the fish was.
The crab salad really stood out. So many different flavours in just one plate!
On the downside, it took 50-70 minutes for our mains to be served to after finishing the starter.
The staff however was very apologetic, and the manager applied 30% off our bill (without us even complaining or asking for any sort of compensation), as an apology for the poor service.
Nice environment, fairly quiet, kids friendly (there were a couple of families there).
Since the place is generally quite busy, it might be worth making a reservation prior visiting it.

Being diagnosed with gluten problem I could not imagine myself not eating the traditional English fish and chips while in London, until I found this restaurant and EUREKA! THE BEST GLUTEN-FREE FISH AND CHIPS, the impressive thing is that you wouldn’t feel the difference between gluten and non-gluten (says my chef friend who’s dining with me). Thanks to Michelin’s recommendation! The staff and the Manager er so efficient and very professional. Unforgettable evening thank you so much!

Everything about the restaurant was lovely ...... except the value for money, even for an upmarket chippy!
Yes the crab burger was not the cheapest item on the menu and both these my friend and I ordered plus the side of chips to share were very good indeed. However £45 for the pair of us (with only Fanta and table water to drink) was rather expensive for what it was. I think they deliver good quality and tasty food, and yes they operate a very small but pleasant waiter serviced restaurant. For me however I am not sure I would pay such prices again when I equally enjoy eating cod and chips out of a box sitting on the beach with my family.

So good! I am not usually a fish and chips person but I was craving it for some reason . My friend ordered the classic vegan and I ordered the classic gluten free cod and chips ....amazing!! A bit pricey but worth it and very large portion. Tartar sauce was so good that I forgot to even try the other sauces! Thank you for not forgetting about us gluten free people :)

We love this place, the combination of traditional food in a pleasant setting with a good range of drinks, makes for a nice lunch or informal evening meal. We recommend the Mayfair Chippy to all our friends. We’re looking forward to coming back.
