When it comes to deciding what to have for dinner on a hot sunny day, my mind always goes back to the delicious fish and chips I ate on UK beaches as a child.

But, sometimes it can be so difficult to find a reliable chippy in London.

So, for dinner on Wednesday evening (June 14), my boyfriend and I paid a visit to Mayfair Chippy for some hopefully tasty fish and chips.

The very first thing that struck us was the queue – people were lining up out the door and along the street waiting for a table.

That immediately told us that we were in for a delicious meal.

Thankfully, we had a booking so we didn’t have to wait in the trail of hungry people waiting.

We were seated at an outside table which was perfect in the twenty-seven degree weather that day.

The menu is an absolute dream for fish lovers like us, with everything from oysters to crab to mussels and – of course – the classic fried fish and chips.

There are even vegan fish and halloumi options for anyone looking to eat something different.

To start, we opted to share the white wine, garlic and parsley mussels as well as the Cornish salt and pepper squid.

The mussels came out in a huge, steaming pot and I have to say, we may have over ordered – the portions at Mayfair Chippy are definitely generous.

But, we had no regrets.

The mussels melted in your mouth and the sauce they came in was rich and creamy.

The squid was tender with a light all spice flavour and was without a doubt the best squid I have ever tried.

For our main course, we both opted for the Mayfair Classic: Fried cod or haddock, chips, mushy peas, tartar sauce and curry sauce.

I went for cod and my boyfriend went for haddock and we were both wowed by our meals.

Again, you get your money’s worth from the portions at Mayfair Chippy and we were both stuffed by the time we had eaten this course.

The fish was flaky and fresh and the batter was crispy and flavourful.

The chips were crispy on the outside but soft on the inside – just as a chip should be in my opinion.

I am a huge mushy pea fan and I was not disappointed by the serving of sweet and minty peas on the side of our dishes.

We were so full after eating all of that fish that we decided to share a dessert instead of getting one each.

While there are numerous incredible looking puddings to choose from, we went for a warm chocolate cake served with honeycomb and salted caramel ice cream.

The cake was light and fluffy and we were impressed that the honeycomb was homemade and still warm and gooey when it arrived at our table.

By the end of our dinner, we could completely understand why people would stand and wait for a table at Mayfair Chippy.

The service was amazing and the food was to die for – I can’t wait to head back again soon.

This one was a 10/10 from me.
