We are determined to keep safe during this turbulent period. We have undertaken detailed risk assessments to work to mitigate the risk of Covid-19. One of the most important and notable precautions that we have taken is that we have taken our entire restaurant outside for a complete Al Fresco experience. You will be enjoying the best seafood in a beautiful outside space in Borough Market once again!

----

We love fresh fish.

Since 1998, my family has tried to share that love with all of our guests through our fishmongers, restaurant and street food.

Like our entire business, our restaurant focuses on getting the best fish and keeping things simple.

We source all of our other products from the Market and tend to only use seasonal produce.

If you love fresh fish, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff come to Applebee's and see what we are all about.

Amazing food! Will definitely be going back! Great prices and amazing staff. Went on the day before lockdown and it was extremely busy but they managed the stress well.

Good evening, eating outside at Borough Market.

Socially distanced.
Good service, excellent food and great ambiance.
All in all an excellent experience and thoroughly highly recommended.

Excellent food and service. A bit pricy and one cubicle toilet for all guest result in big queues.

Great service. Couldn’t fault it. Just one snag - I didn’t know we only had the table until 8pm. That wasn’t made clear when I booked via Opentable (nor when I was contacted 3 times by email the day before, then text then phone on the day to re-confirm my booking) but overall, the restaurant was great.

Very good !

Excellent service ; The waitress looking after our table was very knowledgeable and attentive

For starter we shared the prawns crostini, the lobster arancini and starter portion of mussels which were all very tasty.

Mains : the cod was delicious. The spaghetti vongole , al dente (which is great) , however I was expecting the clams to be with shells but they were not. For me this takes a bit of the flavour out of this very traditional Italian dish, which is always been my favourite since I was a kid. For this reason only, I gave 4 stars instead of 5 to food

We will definitely go back to Applebees Fish restaurant after November lockdown as we enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere.

Good food but poor experience due to overcrowding, inadequate weather protection and very noisy due to location in Borough Market. The use of the outdoor space with large umbrellas and space heaters is great in theory but there were too many tables crammed into that area leading to a lack of social distancing. Also due to sporadic rain our table twice had to be moved leaving even less space. A much more comprehensive covering is needed.
The food however is very good although somewhat overpriced. We would only consider returning in warm, dry weather when no distancing requirements.

After a minor misunderstanding around the booking, I had an enjoyable time.

Excellent food with lovely combinations of flavours and high class service.

More expensive than other places, but better value for money than some more expensive restaurants along the Thames.

The lighting and ambience of the restaurant set the tone for a beautiful date night. The waiters were polite and greeted us as we walked in. The food was nothing short of spectacular. The oysters were delightful and a nice starter. We had the sea bass which was nothing short of amazing.
Throughout the night the waitress checked in on us and made sure our glasses were topped up.
All in all it was a pleasant experience.

Had a lovely meal outside on the terrace with friends. Great that you can book an outside heated and covered table for household mixing, so well organised.
Service was outstanding - the French waiter with glasses who served us was so lovely and everything was spot on. He was working so hard on a busy night but made sure everything was perfect.
Food was great, lovely atmosphere, we had a really special evening. Thank you!

The fish & chips was ok, not great. I cannot speak for other items on the menu, but would have liked to try something different. We asked for substitutions of vegetables for the mushy peas, but were told there were none, even though we saw that there were other greens & veg on the menu. We would have paid extra and could have been upsold. A nice substitution was the truffle potato mash for chips that one in our group had. Th fries were avarage. I would try Applebee's again...but would look at some of their other well thought out dishes and pick something more unique.

Best things is the seafood platter, everything else wasn’t that appealing.
Mash and creamed spinach came cold. Brixham turbot was dry.
6 extra king prawns for £26 was steep but tasted amazing.

Lack of drinks selection but the bartender made us our own pornstar martini and then ended up selling out once other customers saw our drinks.

Staff outstanding and extremely attentive, so so so lovely!

All in all the seafood platter is the star of the show

I rated this 3 star ambience based on shared toilet facilities, unfortunately over priced platter and needs more cocktails choices. The restaurant itself very nice, food was tasty and staff on point

Went to Applebee’s at late notice for a friend’s birthday. They looked after us so well, friendly, welcoming and truly excellent food. We had a dog with us and were able to sit outside with umbrellas and heaters keeping us dry and warm. Absolutely perfect.

Ambience, service and wine were lovely!
Very cosy and safe with the Covid screen in between tables. I have definitely had better spaghetti vongole. It felt too buttery and the sauce overwhelmed the clams. The tiramisu ice-cream tasted creamy more than anything.
