Fish and chips is my favourite meal, it always has been and it always will be – but that means I’ve tried a whole host of fish and chips from a whole host of different places.

And, I’m always the first to critique it if there’s something that isn’t quite up to scratch.

I’ll always favour northern fish and chips – it’s somehow greasier and more tasty – but I’ve found a London chippy that I think might be just as good, and it’s a posh one.

The Mayfair Chippy is on North Audley Street, just off Oxford Street, and it regularly has queues down the road to try its infamous Mayfair fish and chips.

Put it this way, I’d queue for it too – it’s top notch and one of the best I’ve ever had in London.

They have an outdoor area, along with an inside restaurant, and you can get the fish and chips as a takeaway too.

Each portion comes with gravy or curry sauce, mushy peas and tartare sauce – and the portions are really decent in size.

There’s also other things on the menu too, such as seafood or meat, so it’s perfect for those who aren’t as crazy about battered fish and chips as I am.

I went on a Saturday evening with my mum and my boyfriend after battling with the hustle and bustle and November busyness of shopping around Oxford Street.

It was the perfect cosy treat, and we shared some smoked salmon, a beetroot salad, and some warm sourdough to start.

Each of these were delicious, and just proved that its not just fish and chips that’s a specialty at the Mayfair Chippy, but I can’t pretend that I wasn’t just waiting for the big event.

We all got fish and chips – my mum a gluten free option which she was really grateful for them having on the menu – and we shared some kale and peas in the middle.

There isn’t much I can say about it apart from YUM and WOW. It was hot, big in portion size, tasty, cooked to perfection, crispy but soft, and all round delicious.

News Shopper:

There are festive specials available throughout December at the Mayfair Chippy – with festive delights including Festive Fritters made with sage and onion stuffing, pigs in blankets and cranberry and bacon jam available from November 13 to December 24. There’s also a Mayfair Christmas burger with Norfolk turkey, festive trimmings and smoked apple wood in a brioche bun, along with baked rum and raisin cheesecake with spiced clementine and Christmas pudding ice cream for dessert.

If my meal is anything to go by, these will be equally as irresistible this festive season.
