Poppies is a family restaurant opened in 1945, which places great importance on the quality of the fish it selects daily.

As proof, in 2014 he won the 1st prize of best Fish & Chips from the United Kingdom ! Building on its success, Poppies has 3 restaurants in London 2 in Spitafiels and 1 in Camden Town.

Poppies is a good plan to taste English cuisine with good value for money!

What is the atmosphere of the Poppies restaurant?


The atmosphere is very fifity with Formica tables, old artwork on the walls and waitresses in traditional black and white attire. All in a neat and chic setting where we take pleasure in observing all the hanging elements, in short it is a real treat for the eyes !!!

Who is the clientele of the Poppies restaurant?

The clientele is varied both in terms of age and origin. You will come across tourists as well as Londoners with an average age ranging from 20 to 50 years old.

What can we eat and drink at the Poppies restaurant?


Here we come above all to eat the delicious Fish & Chips prepared with cod or haddock. As an accompaniment, delicious homemade fries are offered with small pots of ketchup and béarnaise sauce.

What makes the success of this Fish and Chips is of course the quality and freshness of the fish but also the mastery of the frying which gives a crispy and light Fish & Chips, unlike many which are fatty and nauseating.

But for those who don't want Fish & Chips, don't panic !!! Poppies also offers other dishes such as fried squid, sole or even chicken.

For desserts, the house specialty is the traditional caramel and apple pie pudding.

On the beer side, I recommend Meantime London which is a light blond beer that goes perfectly with Fish chips. Unfortunately it is only served in a bottle and not on draft.

I found the service to be very pleasant. Indeed the welcome is very warm and all the waitresses are smiling and attentive.
