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).

Gluten free fish and chips were amazing! Onion rings were a bit oily!

My wife and I love this little place where the fish is always fresh and excellent and chips never disappoint. We both strongly recommend it and what follows is just a recurring, if minor, incident that we report in the hope that it will be fixed. The past three times we have been (over an arc of several months), their card reader was always "not working" thus forcing us to go out, withdraw from an ATM, and then come back to pay. The last time we went it was particularly frustrating because I had to leave my wife as hostage for the waitress to feel certain I would return to pay. All this with no indication upon entering the restaurant that this would be happening. While this repeated incident won't stop us from enjoying the quiet of the place and the excellence of the food in the future, this is a recommendation for both customers that they bring cash (in the order of 35£ per couple) for the managers that they fix this: it's too stupid a thing to lose good business over.

We enjoyed our lunch at Hobson’s. They are allergy aware and made recommendations. The food was delicious and the service was courteous.

Ristorante posto in una zona residenzioale molto bella, cibo molto buono, ho assaggiato il cod e anelli di cipolla senza glutine ed erano molto buoni e molto croccanti, personale gentile e disponibile. Consigliatissimo

Staff was amazing! Super knowledgeable about gluten free options and cross contamination. I was offered gluten free fish and chips as well as many appetizers and desserts. It was so great being able to have the same meal as my husband and have a BEER that actually tastes like BEER!
*i am a very sensitive celiac so this was beyond an amazing experience for me*

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.
