Poppies serves traditional fish and chips in the traditional way, wrapped in newspaper, in the heart of London's Spitalfields market. Poppies' owner, Pat 'Pops' Newland, has been serving fish and chips in the East End for over 50 years, during which time he has maintained the recipe for original, traditional, healthy fish and chips. The 1950s themed restaurant may not be everyone's cup of tea, however there is no denying that Poppies is a fun place to dine. The service is quick and friendly, the hairstyles quirky and the blue and white décor retro. What's more, the fish and chips are second to none! If you fancy steeping back in time to a bygone era when jellied eels where a staple of an East Enders' diet, head to Poppies but be prepared to wait as there is almost always a queue!
- Fish and Chips: "Eat in or take away and enjoy the nostalgia trip, and a good read when you've finished your fish and chips and can unpeal the wrappings. For those of you who really love your fish and chips, there's even a loyalty card here."
- Best for Fish and Chips Because: Poppies does great fish and chips, retro style with fairtrade guilt free fish. What can be better?
