About

Is there any Briton out there who doesn’t love fish and chips? We’d bank on any straying nay-sayers being converted by Chiswick restaurant The Catch. Opened in 2006 on the dining room-heavy Chiswick High Road, The Catch is a traditional fish and chip shop with a contemporary twist. All off white walls and stripped back wooden floors, bistro furnishings and pavement seating, The Catch has the look and feel of a modern brasserie, a fitting setting for the signature updated fried favourites. Committed to using only 100% fresh ingredients, The Catch’s menu mixes traditional chip shop fayre with a more creative selection, as well as gourmet burgers and health conscious salads. An unusual addition to the dining experience here at The Catch is a bar, serving not only beers and spirits but a well rounded wine list including quality reds, whites and roses – an indication that The Catch is so much more than simply a local chippy.

Gross mushy peas, horrible chips. Fish was ok though. But I have to say, it was my worst fish n' chips experience in London. Any decent pub would have done it better.

A nice local fish restaurant. Food was good, approved by children, just a shame that it was so quiet at Sunday lunchtime. Well worth a visit.

This place is good in parts. Service was slow even in the quiet mid-afternoon period on Sunday.
Grilled sardines starter was excellent. Whitebait was fried in thick batter - wrong surely. Two of us ordered grilled halibut as a main course and it arrived incinerated. Stiff as a board. One of us sent it back and it returned exactly the same, possibly thru language problems. The owner was genuinely mortified when we complained again, offered to cook a replacement himself but it was too late. He knocked it off the bill, which was fine. I WOULD return but keep it simple - battered fish & chips.

Good fish and chips to take away or eat in. The restaurant is modern with a nice, almost cosy ambiance. The restaurant menu is extensive and includes beer and wine. Our waitress was pleasant and the food delivered promptly and hot. Very pleased we ate here to get our fish and chip fix.

There was a bit of a muddle over our booking, as the top table confirmation apparantly had not corm through. Once that was resolved we were promptly seated. Food arrived quickly and was well presented. The fish was perfectly cooked but did lack in flavour. I think if I dined again it would be to takeaway!

This is an excellent local fish and chip shop. It has a traditional menu but the quality of the food and size of portions put it at the top end of this kind of restaurant. The service is always excellent and although they do an busy take-away trade this never impinges of the speed of service to customers that sit down. Fish can be served Battered, Grilled or in Matzo meal giving options for health conscious dinners who don't like deep fried and battered fish.

Excellent fish and chips, friendly service, fair price, what more could you want? Somewhat spartan atmosphere, but you're not really at a restaurant, more a cafe that serves top of the range fish & chips.

For a fish & chip shop the restaurant at the back is a great credit to the owners & is reasonably priced for an enjoyable meal & everyone I have taken has been pleasantly surprised.

We had the lunch menu, which was 8.95 for a starter and a main.I took the chicken wings and my wife took the prawn cocktail.The wings were good, however we were not too impressed with the prawn cocktail. The prawns still had the tails however it was in a glass without a plate on the side which made it very difficult for my wife to eat.For the mains, you get to choose between plaice, haddock, cod and a few other fish battered. We both had cod and the fish was excellent, as were the chips.
