Not been yet, but on Darkside the one getting good reviews lately is London Inn.

I’ve seen them advertise pretty cheap Sunday Roasts and frozen meals to take home. Truthfully, though, I’m just not going to be going to Darkside places (when I eventually get back to Pattaya). Even if I stay longer term, I won’t have transport and won’t use mototaxis so the cost & logistics of getting somewhere out there just isn’t worth it.

Normal price for cod loin in supermarkets here in the UK is about £15 a kg. That makes it about £3, or 130 baht, just for the piece of raw fish. 229 baht for cod & chips in Pattaya is a good

Had this fish and chips twice when I was in Patts Feb/March on their special offer day.Very nice both times.Witherspoons Soi Buakhao.Cant remember the price either 200 or 250 baht.

RHT now charge 250B on Friday for haddock, and its dame good, can get with either batter or breadcrumbs.

Interestingly, they charge 399B for cod and chips, off their regular menu.

 

Are you sure it's not 299 for the Cod?
It certainly was last time I went.

The Flounder floundered I was told and is no more.
Haddock is my favourite for FnC but I'm not very impressed with what I've tried here....tails basically, not proper fillets.

This side of the great divide my vote is still for the Friday Cod Special at Retox for 249 Baht.

Really? I just thought that most battered white fish you get with Fish 'n Chips outside Europe looks like (and usually IS) frozen Bird's Eye fillets. That one looks like the fish you get from a real chipper north of London. Does it taste like shit?

The Witherspoons battered fish in the photograph to which I referred (see first pasted post above) isn't rectangular. It's more, er, 'fish-shaped', and that was my point.

To me that Witherspoons fish looks the most like the fish I'm used to from fish and chip shops in the UK. So, I imagined it might taste pretty good. I'm surprised that some have said it does not.

Living outside the UK for 3 decades, I miss many 'home comforts'. Decent fish and chips has always been high on that list.

PS. I guess the McDonalds 'fillet 'o fish' folks are using Ostracion Cubicus (the 'yellow boxfish')?

I don't think it was ever 'owned' by Retox, I think there was some sort of operating arrangement with the Outback owners.

@Captain Dave  may be able to confirm/clarify/correct.

Caveat to above recommendation.
There is a service lady there who takes your order for the Special (at 249) .....then asks if you'd like Cod or Haddock (299 not Special) but fails to mention the difference.

Appears to be in the hands of a South African now.

Mate went there Friday for the Haddock Special (299?) and said it's still spot on.

Must have been hard going with those roadworks and they parted with their manager (at Rendezvous now) so a new owner is probably right......decent spot and good food and facilities so hopefully it comes through OK.

Anyone been here? Walking distance from my house but never noticed it. Any connection with "London Pie Co."?

Same mate took me there the week before....he was heard to say later "It's gone off".
It's just a little shop house, not connected I'd guess.
Nothing particularly wrong with it, though 2 small fillets are not the same as 1 large in my book.....frozen fries, all cooked OK and prices cheap enough but certainly not worth the trip from Pattaya Central.....from your place worth a look.

"Looks" hmmmm.
If you don't distinguish between Cod/Haddock and the factory farmed Pangasius catfish most places here use (AKA 'Dory') then I can't help you.
It's a tasteless mush but if someone just likes anything in batter then yes, it can look OK.

The main (only) reason for its popularity is that it's cheap (cheaper?) as chips.
I only recommend Cod or Haddock i.e. ocean fish, which is what UK FnC is about.

You are what you eat up2u.
