First off, this is a fish and seafood restaurant so since I am allergic, my choices were limited. I went with the lunch special and I found the food with little taste and the service quite slow. Nice place and probably a hidden gem for...More

The fish and chips are good. However, the best is the fish pie and fish soup, really delicious, and fresh ingredients. Must try.

We have not been to Geales for some time but remembered it as a fantastic, if slightly expensive, fish restaurant. Sadly that wasn't our experience recently. No atmosphere, poorly trained staff and food that really missed the mark. Fish pie had great ingredients but no...More

Geales has been London's most loved neighbourhood fish restaurant for over 70 years. Since 1939 this reputable restaurant has been a firm favorite with devoted locals and celebrities' alike. Geales offers a menu that retains the great British chip shop mentality... No frills, just fresh fish and fabulous service. The updated historic site provides a rustic yet chic local diner with a relaxed, nostalgic nod to the brand heritage.
