Quintessentially British is Fish 'n' Chips so it seemed logical it would be one of the first things we would eat.
By the time we finished showering and hanging out at the Plaza Premium Lounge at Heathrow Airport, got our Oyster Cards, took the tube to Russell Square, checked in at the Grange White Hall hotel and unpacked, we were starving and it was a little late!
We found The Fryer's Delight nearby. It was empty when we walked in, but had a homey feel to it. The staff were very welcoming. Two were from Portugal , and we enjoyed chatting with them. I love a small restaurant over a chain any day. An upscale restaurant may look fancy, and sometimes they are definitely fun to visit, but on the day-to-day I just like down to earth places like this one.
After we had been there, people started filing in, and soon it was full! Needless-to-say (then why am I saying it? 😜), I joked that we drew the crowd. Delusional much?
Loved the food, though! We got an order of fish 'n' chips (what's the correct way to write that?), mushy peas, and drinks. It hit the spot!
Ever the sucker for a pun, I also loved the window which said "A Plaice in the Sun"
(Plaice is a type of fish, not a typo)
I would definitely come back to visit The Fryer's Delight if I have the chance. :) Have you ever been?
