Fish & Chips in The West End

Proudly owned by a succession of Italian and Greek Londoners since founded by M Esposito in 1914, this chippie retains a classic interior, vintage fryer and chunky wooden tables where labourers rub elbows with suits over excellent fish and chips. It has a liquor licence, although you may be more tempted by the bring-your-own-bottle (BYO) policy, with corkage at just £2 per person.
