Poppies to open its fourth fish and chips restaurant

Related tags Poppies Fish and chips London Restaurant

Fish and chip restaurant brand Poppies will open its latest London restaurant this winter.

Located on Portobello Road, it will be the group’s fourth restaurant, joining its sites in Spitalfields, Soho and Camden.

The 64-cover restaurant will have the same nostalgic feel as the existing Poppies venues with a nod to the site’s former occupants - wood panelling from its time as a bank and signage from when it was George Portwine’s butcher shop.


Poppies was established in Spitalfields in 1952 and takes its name from Eastender Pat ‘Pop’ Newland (below), whose career began in the fish and chip business at age 11 when he got a job on the Roman Road cutting up The Daily Mirror newspaper to wrap fish and chips in for takeaway.


“We couldn’t leave west Londoners without decent Poppies fish and chips any longer, they deserve to taste the best,” says Pop’s son, Danny Newland.
“Poppies, like Portobello Road, is dedicated to preserving London’s rich traditions and history which makes it the perfect fit. We’re committed to serving up the tastiest and freshest fish and chips in town so whether trying it for the first time or indulging in a regular Friday tradition, customers will get a top-notch, lip-smacking, belly-filling, classic British meal.”

Poppies Portobello will open in December.
