The Mayfair Chippy Abbeville Village Clapham
The Mayfair Chippy is a quintessentially British restaurant with an emphasis on great fish dishes, serving only the freshest produce to the highest standards.
We are located in Mayfair, The City and Clapham.
Very good quality food. Straightforward, no nonsense restaurant. The Battered Walley was a delight (according to my wife!)
Half the menu not available
This was our second visit to the Clapham Mayfair Chippy since it opened two months ago. It’s a nice space. Good, friendly service. The food is fine, but limited. We had mussels because we weren’t feeling like a fried main. We’d love to support such a sweet, local restaurant more often, but there’s only so much fried food one can eat. Even the beetroot salad is fried. Now, I hear you saying “but it’s a chippy.” True. But this isn’t any chippy. If they can offer 12 different gins and a smorgasbord of mixers and garnishes, surely they can offer more seafood choices that aren’t fried and still be on-brand. When the food menu is as grown-up as the drinks, we’ll eat there a lot more often than once every two months.
Excellent fish and chips in a stylish setting. We loved the mushy peas and curry sauce too!
Great fish and chips, a little strange music selection and lighting is too bright.
We had a good experience here. It is a good replacement for Kerbisher & Malt. Very good chips. We would like to see a grilled fish option though. Very good of them to have vegan and vegetarian options. Child friendly. We had good service despite them handling lots of takeaway and delivery orders on a Friday night
It is the 2nd time since the opening a couple of weeks we went. It was not as outstanding as on our first night, not consistent.
Service was friendly. The menu is about what we would have expected from a chippy that’s a bit posh — with just enough alternatives to fried fish so locals like us can consider stopping in regularly. Everything we had was yummy.
It appears they are already doing a very serious take-away business — which, on the night we were there, was in competition with the timing of mains coming out of a compact kitchen for in-restaurant diners. Perhaps, if take-away promise times were relaxed a bit, seated diners could be served a bit quicker — which in turn would allow tables to turn over faster, and fewer would-be guests would have to be turned away.
We so want to see The Mayfair Chippy do well. That Abbeville is somewhat hidden — and has small shop spaces — can’t be easy on restauranteurs. A branch of a successful, casual eatery from Mayfair seems like it should be a good fit.
