At Hobson’s we are committed to providing our customers with the very best traditional fish and chips. We source fresh fish only from sustainable resources, delivered to us daily from Billingsgate Fish Market.




We only serve the traditional British chip specifically selected for its taste and texture that we peel and cut ourselves.




We prepare and fry our fish and chips separately in pure vegetable oil (not containing animal, hydrogenated fats or additives).

We dined at Hobson's Fish and Chips because they offer GLUTEN-FREE FRIED FISH. I have celiac, and the restaurant's offerings was heaven for me. I rarely get to eat fried food (french fries/chips) because it's usually contaminated by other gluten-filled food that's fried in the same oil. All of Hobson's chips are gluten-free, and they have a dedicated fryer for the gf fish. I ordered fried cod, which was yummy. Their fish is fresh as it's caught closeby. Oh, they also have gluten-free beer. Our server was friendly and efficient. The place is in the Bayswater/Notting Hill area--close to our hotel. We will definitely return!

With some gluten-free family members, we enjoyed our meal at Hobson's very much. Excellent and attentive service, comprehensive choice of food and sides and lovely crispy generous portions of fish and chips.

The only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars is that the onion rings were a little oily but otherwise it was all delicious.

We didn't even get chance to eat. I made a reservation only to be told on arrival with my guests from South Africa that the restaurant was closed due to the bank holiday and carnival. It would have been nice know in advance before we walked almost a mile to get there...

While the service wasn’t the best but the fish and chips were really good. I hate to say something like the best I ever had. It sounds cheesy, right? So I’m not going to say they were the best I ever had, but they were really really good.

The gluten free food is amazing. It is so nice to get quality fish and chips and onion rings, etc. And the ambiance for a chippy is really really good. Prices are a bit high, but it is worth it!

The service was wonderful and the food was amazing - especially exciting to have gluten free fish and chips! It was a bit pricey but there was also SO much food that I was ridiculously and happily full. Well worth the trip.

Incredibly tasty and super crispy gluten-free fish n' chips! Service was a little slow for the time of the day, but the food was so good, I still give this place 5-stars. Waitstaff very helpful and nice. Ambiance got 3-stars but just simply because it is a casual restaurant, but it is very clean with fresh decor and well lit.

We went so that our celiac daughter could comfortably experience fish and chips on our London vacation!

It was delicious for all of us including none gluten free. It’s definitely more of a casual lunch place (but not inexpensive).

The table service was awful - no attention paid to us and kept bringing food without Cutlery. £100 is a lot for 4 people in a chippy. We did not order a huge amount of food.

I would not go again - as they had a mandatory charge of £10 table service charge which I find offensive as the service was abysmal.

Please sort this out as this place does not live up to the hype

An early dinner before theater. Short walk from our apartment and really good onion rings. Light and crispy. Battered is the way to go. The cod was also crispy but the grilled haddock was just sad. Go if you want good cheap fried and battered fish. Otherwise I’d skip it.

For gluten free fish and chips, you can’t go wrong here and probably won’t find it many other places. It’s wonderful! Plus, they even offer gluten free beer!! Worth visiting!

My family and me had such a great time trying the popular fish an chips dishes... The fish was crunchy and light, not oily. The potatoes and the fried mars were fried in a different oil and that made the food really tasty.

I was hoping to be able to eat fish and chips while traveling in England, but wasn't sure I'd find any that's gluten free. Hobson's to the rescue! They have many gluten free items on the menu, including fish and chips and beer! The server was very nice and helpful, the restaurant is clean and the tables were an attractive mixed wood (maybe reclaimed wood?). I am not a big fan of fried food, so I couldn't finish all the fried batter coating on the fish and the fried onions, but it was good to be able to try this English food while there. I would recommend this restaurant and would return if/when I'm back in London!

The previous Mickey Fish and Chip now revamped to Hobson, it’s pretentious and not retain the quality, the food is so so but worse was the staff whom were not of quality, lack attentiveness and mainly just made us not welcomed.

No more! I wouldn’t go again so will not recommend it to anyone.

Hobsons has a normal fish and chips menu as well as offering plain grilled fish, gluten-free battered options, a selection of salads and greens. Spacious comfy seating with some interesting historical fishing photos on the wall. Friendly seevice. My fried cod had excellent batter but fish was not so fresh which was a disappointment. With daily delivery of seafood, this should not happen.

The waitress was unfriendly and did not seem to comprehend things easily. We asked for a glass of water as we sat down which took 10 minutes to come even though the restaurant was empty. The gluten free fish was tasteless an oily. They forgot to order a Cajun spice and just dusted it on instead of grilling it again. A real disappointment

This was a solid spot for our first casual dinner in London. The fish and chips were great and they had a lot of other options if fish and chips isn't your thing. The service was great, also.
