The Fish Club

Hello all!!

I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of fish. I do, however eat it and prepare it, say once a week, but if I am in a restaurant, I will never order it. I'll always go for something else.
So, it is a bit unusual for me to go to a fish restaurant, where they only serve fish and nothing else on the menu. I have now been twice to The Fish Club and I will be going back again. And that comes from a non fish lover. So, it must be good, right?

The Fish Club uses only fresh line caught fish from sustainable waters, delivered daily from fishermen based in Mersea island and Poole Dorset. The restaurant was voted to be one of the best restaurants out of 50, by Time Out in 2011.
So, if you happen to be in London, check their website and make sure that you go. You will not be disappointed.

So, here are a few pictures from my dining at The Fish Club:


 Battered haddock:


Prawn and chorizo kebab. Unbelievably good:





For me, grilled coley. I've also had battered coley, but I have to say, my preference is grilled fish. So heatly, so good, my mouth waters just looking at this picture:

 
As side dishes, chips of course (and sweet potato too because it is just too good):



And as refreshments, local ale. Brewed on the river Wandle, in Wandsworth. And it was delicious. It went down a treat:


 

One of the pleasures in life is food, and in particular when you're sharing it with people you love. The Fish Club in Clapham Common today was full of children having lunch with their mums (it is mother's day here in the UK today). Unfortunately, I wasn't lucky to take my mum out today, but it was the next best thing; I was celebrating a special anniversary with two people I love very much.

Here is to healthy food, good beverage and most of all to great company. Bon appetit!!

Z, how good is that place! We used to go there all the time, so I am really happy to hear it is still fabulous. Your meals looked wonderful, especially your grilled fish and sweet potato chips. I used to like their mushy peas too.

Loved all of the photos!

Hope all is going great and hopefully Spring arrives soon!

I used to like fish and I still do, really, but I don't eat it any more mainly because of the mercury/pesticides issue... Must be wonderful to have something freshly caught, though - best flavour and if it's wild then healthy, too. x

Fresh fresh from sustainable waters is probably the best way to have fish! The offerings at this place look delightful!
