Rock and Sole Plaice
With not that much room to sit inside, there is plenty of space onto which people spill out when the sun shines to enjoy some of the best fish and chips in London.
Rock and Sole Place, apart from providing a clever name, delivers portions to make your eyes widen (they'll certainly make your waistline do the same), and they're known best for their tartare sauce. Elsewhere their fried fishes tick all the boxes: they're not oily, their batter is light and as crispy as a winter wind, the fish itself is cooked to perfection; it's not rubbery or chewy but slips down easily, just watch out for the odd bone or two.
And it's not just fish and chips they serve here either, because pies and savories as well as a vegetarian list take part in proceedings. Chicken breast, steak and kidney, beef sausage and Cornish pasties are all available as typical English numbers, while a cheese and onion pastie, crispy coated goat's cheese or crispy coated Camembert serve as the non-meat choices.
Prices are a little steeper here but that's to be expected in Covent Garden. Starters of houmous with a pitta bread come in at £4 while the rest of the starter menu are all £5. The mains average somewhere between £10 - £20 but staying, for the most part, closer to the ten pound mark. The pasties, pies and veggie meals are mostly £7 each.
