1 Cale Street, London SW3 3QT Critic reviews - total score 6 out of 10
Hotel and restaurant owner Mark Fuller of Sanctum Soho bought up the Notting Hill fish and chip restaurant in 2006 with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. That done, they've expanded the Geales brand and have bought up Tom Aiken's former chipper Tom's Place in Chelsea. Expect 'fresh fish, no frills and fabulous service'.

It takes a particularly brave resturateur to open a fish restaurant when others such as Fishworks are heading into receivership, but Malcolm John seems to have a knack for opening popular local bistros in South London. Certainly the first reports suggest he's managed to create a fresh and cheerful offering with Fish and Grill.
