Whilst paper wrapped fish and chips is glorious in plasterings of salt, vinegar and ketchup on a cold evening, it can be presented in more homely surroundings. Indeed Sea Pebbles fish and chips restaurant in Hatch End, northwest London is a cosy diner whilst maintaining a no frills aspect to it. It is run by a Cypriot family and their homemade tartar sauce is scrumptious enough to eat on its own.

Should you go during the daytime on the weekdays you can often take advantage of their two courses for £12.95 deal. Whether you wish for more fish as your starter in the form of prawns or fish cakes, or rather to wash down your main course with bread and butter pudding, this lunchtime offer gives you flexibility in choice. Furthermore the main menu also has the added benefit of Mediterranean flavours, not least the Greek salad.



In terms of main courses my preference is the Goujons of Cod with chips. The beauty of this dish is the complete crispness throughout each Goujon unlike a conventional Cod piece which might be a little soft or soggy in the middle. The Haddock is also delightful and potentially big enough for two people to share.

It is highly advisable to come into the restaurant for a sit down meal rather than takeaway to ensure that your food is made to order. This way your fish and chips are presented with a fresher coating of oil that gives it a crunchier and highly moreish taste. Furthermore the majority of main courses come with a few rations of salad so you don’t feel so guilty!



As the restaurant’s slogan goes ‘once upon a pebble’ – you can be sure Sea Pebbles will pick the finest catches. They are now also open on a Sunday!

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
