There are dinners for a score, and then there are fish suppers for £18.95 at Fish Central in Clerkenwell. If, like us, you’re partial to an old school place (and a set menu) then you’ll love it here. £20 is going to get you a prawn cocktail starter, cod or haddock and chips, and then a choice (yes that’s right, a choice) of any dessert. It’s homely, it’s filling, and it’s good value. Plus if you’re in luck, you’ll come on music night. It involves one man, one keyboard, and a lot of 80s.
