I stumbled upon them through a Gluten-Free review from a few years ago when they were doing one day a month with a gluten free menu. It was so successful that now every Wednesday is GF day, and so today, I dragged my friend along (we weren't sure whether there would be a regular menu as well, and if not, what on earth we were getting ourselves in for) and we had some lunch.
I order the Cod Goujons, GF, and my friend was able to order just regular Cod.
I was so pleasantly surprised to see this arrive:
The batter was actually light and crispy and wasn't oily. Our usual experience has been for very thick and oily batter that you leave behind and view as being a vestibule to simply keep the fish warm, not fit for human consumption. But this one was different! It had a lovely flavour, a lovely crunch and if I hadn't of been told it was GF, I would never have known.
If you are gluten-intolerant and are looking for a good chippy in London (.......on a Wednesday), then look no further!
UPDATE: I mad a very silly mistake and when i read the menu which said that the batter was either traditional or matzo meal, i just assumed this was the choice between regular and gluten free. Matzo meal is not gluten free. i contacted Oliver's and found out that the batter is made from a combination of GF Plain flour, GF Rice flour and Cassava flour. so what i ate WAS gluten free, but my apologies for stating it was matzo meal. xx
