A Guide to London's Classic Cafes and Fish & Chip Shops provides a considered and tasteful look at London's finest classic cafes and fish and chip shops, offering a culinary tour of the capital's traditional, retro and understated food scene.

Nearly ten years on from Black Dog Publishing's best-selling Classic Cafes and hot on the heels of one of our bestsellers, Tea & Cake London, this new book, along with Meat London: An Insider's Guide, continues our celebration of London's unique culinary culture. Taking a detailed look at the city's classic cafes and fish and chip shops, from the food and drink served to the decor and style maintained by these particularly British establishments, the book touches on the cultural history of the institutions featured, as well as providing an up-to-date overview of London's best and most loved cafes and chippies.

Each classic cafe and fish and chip shop is evocatively documented with specially commissioned photography and carefully selected examples of the signature menus, signage and other ephemera specific to these cherished bastions of British culture. Such seminal favourites as the 'full English', bangers and mash, jellied eels, pollock and chips, mushy peas, whitebait and the pickled gherkin are celebrated.

With more than 50 establishments covered, A Guide to London's Classic Cafes and Fish & Chip Shops is an essential reference guide for anyone interested in the capital's traditional and 'classic' foodie culture.

This book features an introduction by author, food writer and broadcaster Simon Majumdar, who has written for the The Guardian, The Times and many food websites, and appears regularly on TV on the Food Network.
