Fsh and chip restaurant Poppies is crossing into West London to open a new site in Portobello Road.
It will be the fourth Poppies restaurant with its central London branches located in Spitalfields, Soho and Camden.
The 75 square metre site will feature the same cosy, nostalgic atmosphere Poppies is famous for with up to 64 covers planned. There will also be a nod to the site’s former occupants – wood panelling from its term as a bank and signage from when it was George Portwine’s butcher shop – plus additional retro touches and tributes to original founder, the late Pat ‘Pop’ Newland.
Pop’s son, Danny Newland, commented: “We couldn’t leave West Londoners without decent Poppies fish and chips any longer, they deserve to taste the best!
“Poppies, like Portobello Road, is dedicated to preserving London’s rich traditions and history which makes it the perfect fit. We’re committed to serving up the tastiest and freshest fish and chips in town so whether trying it for the first time, or indulging in a regular Friday tradition, customers will get a top-notch, lip-smacking, belly-filling, classic British meal.”
