heard ALOT about Golden Hind and not just from other Londoners, we’d also read that a fair few celebs are big fans too. Being Northerners we’re more than partial to a Fish & Chip supper so we thought we’d put it to the test and see if it could live up to its rep.

Located on Marylebone Lane the cafe-style eatery is BYO which can only be a bonus if you take your fish supper with booze – we prefer a builders tea. Inside the decor is simple, unfussy and dated like a good old chip shop, so far so good.

There are a few starters on offer but nearly everything is fried, so give them a miss and go straight for the mains if you want to skip the heart attack. The portions are huge (another thumbs up), we went for the Haddock and Chips, the crispy meaty fish so big it hungover our plate perfectly complimented with a batch of freshly fried chips. Mushy peas, garden peas, gerkhins and bread and butter completed our order and we didn’t have one grumble between us.

If you do have room – we didn’t – there is a nice selection of homemade puds including jam sponge and custard. Golden Hind has been around since 1914, they do what they do and they do it good – a great place to take your nana or for a cheap filling dinner.
