A lovely place to get an absolutely ace plate of fish and chips. The chips are never soggy and the batter is always spot on. Perfect chip shop, in my opinion. A fab place for lunch.

Give it a try! The halibut is excellent! The staff are friendly and the portions are good! We left happy and full and there is a car park just down the road if you are driving!

We first visited this restaurant August 2016 with children and grandchildren August 2016. We returned to London July 5th and visited the Laughing Halibut for dinner. It was even better this year, it was just the two of us.

Not that fancy, but quite a local place to have a great lunch or dinner. Fish and chips was good, so did the pie. The staff is very nice. Unfortunately we discovered this place at the end of our stay, but we would definitely go...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
