Restaurant description

Described as ‘pulling on the heartstrings of nostalgia’ by acclaimed critic Fay Maschler, Geales Notting Hill offers superbly fresh fish and seafood. A neighbourhood favourite established in 1939, Geales celebrates glorious Great British cuisine in a sustainable fashion.

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. Specials come fresh from Devon and Cornwall, and favourites include dressed crab, salmon and leek fishcakes and oysters straight from the bar.

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.

    This was my second visit to Geale’s. I love their fish & chips (cod) and mushy peas! The bread with cheese dip is fantastic too! Wonderful atmosphere and the staff is lovely.

    Tasty lunch of fish and chips for 5 of us, and one 13 year old had muscles with chips and the other had scampi and chips! Enjoyed by all of us and very filling lunch. An old haunt of the family when we lived in London area many years ago, and still good service and great fresh fish in batter. Can't believe it's still there although I think it is not family owned anymore? It was nostalgic to return, remembering older relatives who used to enjoy their Saturday lunches there with us.

    We expected a white tablecloth (like their pictures from their own website) upscale restaurant that has in the past had a glorious reputation. The fish and chips were mediocre and the service slow. No white tablecloths, a small piece of haddock served on a plate larger than the portion. In one word, it was terrible. I won't go again and I will encourage anyone who is thinking of going there, to forget it.

    It was a Birthday celebration and although it's a few years since we had been to Geales it was perfect.....as usual. The staff were lovely and the food was great.

    Perfect on every aspect . Service very discret, yet considerate and courteous. Food is amazing , the lobster with brown butter was just perfect and so fresh, the crumble is delicious and the homemade custard is heavenly!!!!!!!!!!

    We had our first traditional fish and chips dinner here. The owner recommended everything we should order, and it was delicious.
