The fish and chip shop is a British institution, and from the origins of the dish way back when in the 1860s, the public have taken it to their heart. While the claim to the first chippy is disputed between the streets of East London and the northern mill town of Oldham, the fish and chip shops of today are always innovating, and at the forefront of the trend is Chip Shop BXTN. They – as their name would suggest – are a chip shop in Brixton, right in the heart of the district on Coldharbour Lane, and they offer a menu that includes the favourites of cod and haddock and then complement them with rock salt sardines, tuna steak, monkfish tail, Caribbean whole snapper, wild sea bass, steamed mussels, lobster, rock oyster… we could well go on. Throw in some jerk chicken or lamb chops, steak from the chargrill and even a few pies and you’re well on your way to a great fish restaurant in Brixton. Book your table today.
It would have been better had they opened!? No sign of life. Even less sign of any truffle hash browns.
Delicious fresh fish, generous portions in a relaxed environment. Good music, but not overwhelming so you could enjoy conversation (we went lunch-time Saturday). Will be back again.
Waited 45 minutes from ordering for our starters. Scallops were overcooked. Main meal of jerk lamb chops was delivered without a knife. More fat than lamb and the chips were below average.
