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 came last week-end and were very satisfied. The plates are really full and you won't leave being hungry :). Quality is here. Kindness too. We'll go back when on a trip to London. Thank you

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.

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

Clean and modern fish and chip shop. Booth seating and large open tables. I felt that attention had been paid to the quality of ingredients. Broad fish menus, cod and haddock, and tuna stake and sea bream as examples. Huge onion rings.

A fantastic traditional fish and chip shop/restaurant but with a very modern twist. A great gluten free menu, lovely relaxed atmosphere, super friendly service and very reasonable price. Am not sure you could ask for anything more and they do takeaways too:)
Couldn’t recommend this restaurant highly enough 5⭐️ Without question!

I ate here a few months ago and loved it so I decided to take a date. Sadly this time round was rubbish. The restaurant was cold, they had a couple of small electric heaters going but they weren't sufficient for the size of the room. The toilets were even colder! The service was great and the food came in good time. The worst thing about this visit is that the food was very poor, the fish was dry and tough. Basically over-cooked. And because the room was cold the food soon became cold too. Very Disappointed!
