Described as ‘pulling on the heartstrings of nostalgia’ by acclaimed critic Fay Maschler, Geales Notting Hill offers superbly fresh fish and seafood. Established in 1939, lovingly restored original features evoke quintessential British charm.

Branded as London’s ‘posh fish and chippy’, the Geales menu offers hearty comfort food with a sophisticated edge. Sourcing from sustainable fish stocks, perfectly grilled fillets sit next to the nation’s favourite, cod in crispy batter. Tired British classics are also brought up to date with contemporary twists, like the Geales restaurant signature fish pie, or prawn cocktail.

Continuing the British theme, classic desserts at Geales Notting Hill include bread and butter pudding with Baileys custard, all washed down with dandelion and burdock or cream soda.

Subdued yet chic, Geales London offsets glossy grey walls and black leather benches with glittering antique mirrors. Notting Hill Gate Tube Station is just 2 minutes’ walk away.

    A very bad meal. Service slow and incompetent - a wait of over an hour for the main course. All four of us found our meal very poor in flavour. Whitebait not cooked properly; haddock almost inedible; salad also barely edible. We would never go again, and I would recommend others strongly against it. A shame: under its original owners it was a good simple fish restaurant,. but no longer.

    Visiting from Montreal, had a great late lunch, loved especially the cod fish & chips.

    Not sure if the restaurant has changed hands but it seems very different from previous trips. We were late and my friends were already there but my moules were horrible and could barely finish them. The waitress was very helpful as my friend has severe dairy allergies but I'm afraid otherwise it was a gloomy experience

    Pleasant ambiance and location, convenient to Notting Hill Gate station. Lovely staff, good listeners and empathisers. Had battered haddock and chips, they were pretty awful even by pub standards and much more expensive. Batter was floury and uncooked inside and the haddock barely cooked. The frying oil gave the batter on the outside at least a great texture and flavour. If the fish had been coated sparingly and cooked a few seconds longer, it would have been good. The chips which we were assured later were made from home cut potatoes tasted dry and stale so assume they were part cooked and finished off later. The mushy peas were excellent and tasted home made rather than tinned which is often the case. With so many other options I see no reason to return and it's definitely the last time I order fish and chips anywhere near London.

    Extremely disappointing. We're locals and having been visiting Geales for years but sadly it has reached a nadir. Surly incompetent service and terrible food. The place was empty when we visited (midweek lunchtime) and it's easy to see why

    The restaurant was old fashioned and very expensive. The white bait was passable but the fish cake was dreadful. It was burnt and sitting in an ocean of 'curry sauce', which was some kind of whitish, slightly hot baby food concoction. The cabbage was tasteless and greasy. The seafood risotto was ok but the caramel sauce on the apple tart tasted too burnt. Overall not a good culinary experience and I won't be going back.

    The atmosphere was fun and funky. The service was attentive and friendly. The fish and chips were the best I have ever had - nothing else comes close! Wish I lived next door and could eat here every day!
