Poppies in Hanbury Street was Pop’s first restaurant and the one where the journey began. The retro-diner and takeaway is close to Pop’s heart as it brought 70year old Pat out of retirement. It fulfilled his lifelong dream of opening an East End chippie and a desire to offer customers a taste of the old East End.

Enjoyed our lunch here. The staff are very friendly and the fish and chips was delicious. We also enjoyed the homemade fish cakes and apple pie.

Excellent location, incredibly clean & well laid out, great food with a wide selection of meals (suited to a fish & chip restaurant), also licensed . Well worth a visit.

Quick attending costumers, good food, very gentle manners from the waitress and it is always a good place to have proper fish and chips in England!

I think there was a moment when the birthday husband thought I was taking him to some posh boys' champagne bar, when we got to Liverpool Street. A short walk brought us to the adorable Poppies, so relief all round.
Fish & chips with both mushy peas and curry sauce is the man's idea of civilisation, so he was very happy.
Service is always great, the decor is beautifully bonkers, and the music excellent.
For me, there's the added luxury of the superb espresso. That, and the Long Island Iced Tea - we had two each.
It's said the East End communists and anti-fascists ate at Poppies over many decades. That day, we joined the commemoration of the Battle of Cable Street, banners held high.
As long as Poppies stays, the true spirit of the East End survives and thrives!

Disappointing visit, we had not visited Poppies for some time. The atmosphere of a busy restaurant with the 60
s music was just not there. Two of the reasons why we frequent this fish restaurant. I requested the music turned up and was ignored.
I had booked a table and requested Skate on the booking form. The waitress was not interested in the fact that we had booked. And when I ordered Skate, I was told it there was none left. I was left feeling the the booking form had not been read.

However the food was at it's usual high standard. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

Poppies, you must try harder to achieve your noted
