The Laughing Halibut

38 Strutton Ground

City of Westminster, SW1P 2HR

You’re not coming here for the decor. This no-nonsense chippy does a roaring trade with the locals (aka the political set) by delivering fast, fresh, flaky fish in a crispy coating with golden fries good enough to eat while still at tongue-burning temperatures. Serving up the traditional cod & haddock and the obviously necessary halibut, it has a slightly more extended list of options including the more unusual skate, squid, and scampi, which draw in long queues come lunch time.
