Since lockdown this place has gonedown! Chips used to be the best around, delicious, crispy and fresh - now they’re sad, soggy and mushy - for the past 4 visits and deliveries at least. The last fish we had here didn’t have the freshness it...used to and tasted old. Has it changed owner’chip’ ? Then as lockdown went on they started charging 20p for some cheap ass vinegar sachets and today they had even taken the vinegars off the tables and only the server behind the counter is allowed to administer the vinegar! You’d think it was made of champagne! Oh and don’t even think of asking for 1/2 peas 1/2 curry sauce. Even though they’re the same price they don’t allow you to mix them. Must be the same person who’s in charge of the vinegar stock takes!!! Such a shame guys as I’d always recommend you and take my friends and family there but not anymore. Stop being so tight with your acetic acid and bring back the standards you had when you initially opened and we’ll be back.More

First off I called for 15 mins solid non-stop the phone was constantly engaged!! So this was not the phone being busy at 2pm it was obvious a staff member unprofessional making long personal calls on the company phone line. I had to call what...the what the fish in brook green explain I couldn’t get through. A nice polite woman answered the phone and said she would out my order through to Hammersmith remotely for me. Anyway she said call her back in two mins to see if it was done by her. She confirmed in my call back it was so I thought ok let me call them again. In Hammersmith where I was going anyway I called back and as suspected a lady answered the phone obviously because she knows I had called about the home being constantly engaged nonstop, so I tell her that I was trying for 15-20 mins but you were engaged. She abruptly tell me “so we had a lot of orders” as I know this to be untrue as my phone was in constant redial I just said it couldn’t be and put down the phone as her time was very harsh and rude. So I get to the shop 5 mins later. At home eating my food almost finished my fish and I see two fine black hairs on my plate under fish.. now I live alone my hair is thick curly of blonde!! The fish n chips chief is a man. Her hair I noted when I went in was black and fine!! I only hope she didn’t spit in my food too! as this is a pandemic. I will be reporting this to the appropriate food standards. Again this is a pandemic that is totally disgusting. AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!More

Delicious! The shop this review is for is Shepherds Bush Road which doesn’t seem to have any reviews yet. This used to be Kerbisher & Malt but has been taken over by What the fish. We had take away a few nights ago for the...second time Cod & Chips, and it was delicious the best fish and chips we have had for a very long time! I really hope that the standard stays like this as I will certainly be a regular if it does.More

We return here regularly as we’ve never been disappointed in the quality of the food, the staff or cleanliness. I had a beef burger and my partner cod, both with chips. Pies, sausages, saveloy etc all available. Portions are large and very tasty, no grease...and cooked to order. Fully licensed bar and take away available too. Will definitely return again.More
