Coxedge's in Stone, they are so lovely in there. the fish is not heavily battered like I have found with other fish shops and their portions are always generous.
What makes them stand out is they deliver and the night we had our car broken into I rung up to get dinner delivered and they even offered to pop in the shop next door and get us any other bits we needed. Lovely people.

Mr Manns in Belvedere!

Absolutely amazing chippie. I have never in my life had chips from a chippie taste so good. They always seem fresh and the place is very clean.

Very very highly recommended.

Tom Bell's on Widmore Green Bromley, Great staff always friendly and having a laugh, Fish is cooked fresh and the portion sizes are big, which means two of us can share one portion of chips!

Coxedges have been running for years, used to have one on St Vincents Road when I was little, we always went there and they were always so polite and the portions were more than adequate. Even though they only have the Stone one open nearest to me, I much prefer to drive all the way to get chips from them rather than others closer to me.

It annoys me when I find a good chippie, they go and ruin it by selling me a fish that is deffo not cod, but they insist it is. When that happens, they've lost a customer.

Bromley Road opposite Flimwell Close. Been there some years, good portions of freshly and not over cooked chips, large potions of fish which taste out of this world, reasonably priced and excellent service. Whenever we fancy fish and chips in South London, that's where we had for.

I remember the St Vincents Road shop well, always had the big dog who came out from the other room at the front! Preferred Dave's however, just round the corner.

Crispy Cod in Orpington High Street gets my vote. Always well cooked and 100% edible. Batter is crisp and tasty- chips are good and hot. They have a decent sized restaurant as well as take-away, and have very friendly staff.

Marlow Fish Bar, Marlow Road, Anerley SE20. The tastiest fish and chips around. Family run, very friendly. The owner is very fussy about which potatoes and oil he uses resulting in the best tasting fish and chips I've ever had. I have to drive nearly 3 miles to get there, passing 3 other chippies on the way but it is more than worth it!

I would have to say my favourite Fish & Chip shop, has to be "Elite Fish Bar" in Welling High Street. Everything is always fresh and you don't get reheated chips there like you do in some other chip shops. You can either eat in or take away, and the staff are very friendly too. They also have a 5 star rating on the scores on the doors app, and I think they deserve it.
