Fish restaurant London: landlocked but lovely

London once held the world’s largest fish market. It might be surprising, being landlocked, but the Thames provided a major thoroughfare for North Sea and Atlantic trade, making east London’s Billingsgate Fish Market a hub for seafood. Nowadays, the fish restaurants London has to offer head to the modern fish and seafood market located close to Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs. Fish arrives fresh there daily, supplying London fish restaurants with fresh seafood from ports as distant as Aberdeen and Cornwall. It might be a long haul but it’s a good catch, and it means you can find some of the world’s best fish restaurants in London.

    Fish restaurants in London: freshest bets

    Interested in numerous, quality fish restaurants London has on offer? Navigate to Canary Wharf, the epicentre of London’s fish trade for a traditional ale with a plate of fish and chips, fresh as a bunch of daisies. For an example of the best fish restaurants in London, head to Wapping, a stone’s throw from the Tower Bridge, to feast on seafood in the lap of luxury. East London’s Dalston and Shoreditch have traditional pickled fish places in abundance if you’re looking less for fish restaurants in London but for fish as close to raw as you’ll find outside Japan. Not for the queasy hearted. Just don’t look them in the eyes.

    London fish restaurants: an ocean’s bounty

    The fish restaurants London has on offer serve up every conceivable type of fish and seafood. Fresh fish and shellfish, that is – the British don’t go for eating sea mammals like some other cultures do. There are some distinctly British ways of serving seafood though. Any London pub worth its salt and pepper will have the classic fish and chips on its menu, while the best fish restaurants in London will serve you premium fillets of fresh fish presented as haute or nouvelle cuisine. Traditional British Pickled fish can be had, though not usually in London fish restaurants – it’s more of a traditional east London street food.
