There are times when only proper fish and chips will do, a crispy, piping-hot plate of joy, if you will. Bypass the disappointment of soggy batter and pallid potatoes and make a beeline for The Mayfair Chippy, one of London's best-loved fish and chip spots (with awards to prove it). 

The moorish menu

Good old-fashioned fish and chips go hand-in-hand with contemporary seafood dining at The Mayfair Chippy. Yes, you come here for traditional battered goodies, that’s fried cod or haddock, loaded up with hand-cut chips and mushy peas just the way you like them, but also the lip-smacking salt-and-pepper squid, mussels steamed in white wine, garlic and parsley (ooo, it’s getting us hungry just writing this) or the soft shell crab burgers and mouth-watering fish finger butties. Did we mention there’s also sticky date pudding and sherry trifle for pudding too?

All dietary requirements are catered for

Whether you’re after a vegan or vegetarian take on fish and chips, The Mayfair Chippy has you covered. There’s the vegan ‘To-Fish’ made with jackfruit, nori seaweed and sriracha mayo, best served with curried peas and Mayfair slaw on the side, or the veggie-style fried West Sussex chip shop halloumi and spiced tomato relish. There’s also alcohol-free batters - all you have to do is ask.

Its sustainability credentials

We love the fact The Mayfair Chippy uses only the freshest, ethically-sourced ingredients (which explains why it tastes so darn good). The fish is sustainably-caught from UK day boats, potatoes grown in Lincolnshire and sauces - from the finger-licking Chip Shop Curry sauce to the HP and tartare - are all lovingly homemade in-house. 

The buzz-about-town vibe

Think of The Mayfair Chippy as your elevated corner shop chippy in the best part of town. Tucked away on North Audley Street, a stone’s throw from Selfridges and Bond Street station, it has the white panelled and tiled walls of a old-school caff, with the squeaky-clean checkerboard floors of a Mayfair restaurant, all bright and airy, with vibrant fishy-themed artwork and cosy leather booths for those who want to make a meal of it. Service is slick and welcoming - even when the crowds descend and snake around the corner on weekends. On a sunny day, there’s no sweeter spot than one of the outdoor tables, with a crisp glass of rosé and bowl groaning with oysters. If you’re looking to go with a group, there’s a semi-private dining space for up to 14. If you’re planning on eating in, we’d recommend always booking a table in advance as space is limited.

It's hailed London’s best fish and chip shop

Ever since opening in 2015, The Mayfair Chippy’s awards read like those of a Hollywood actor. Not only has it nabbed a 1AA Rosette Award with Michelin Guide accreditation, the restaurant was also named as London’s best fish and chip shop in the Good Food Awards 2023/24.  As if you needed more reason to leg it there.
