The Fryer’s Delight is the most aesthetically pleasing chippie in London. We know we’re not meant to care about these things, but, honestly, it’s hard to resist a little smile when you sit down in one of their bright red formica-tabled booths. This place isn’t trying to be old school, it just is. The fish and chips themselves are tasty enough, though by no means the best we’ve ever had. It doesn’t really matter though as a solid portion of haddock, chips, and mushy peas is well under a tenner, and also a bit priceless in a place like this.
