Geales always offer good food, service was a bit rushed this time but I really do care more about the food, so a big thumb up, will be back soon

Anybody who remembers the family-run Geales in its heyday; a no-frills place that was sometimes unpredictable, often chaotic and always terrific value, will be very disappointed to encounter it now. The bean-counters have moved in now, with an eye on the unwary tourist to boost...More

Geales has been a fixture in Notting Hill Gate for longer than the forty plus years I've eating and drinking there. It's had its ups and downs with changing times and different owners, but it's still serving up good classic fish and chips. Prices have...More

this isn't my local but I wish it was. Its just behind Nottinghill Gate station in a quiet back street. Fairly dark with great music playing, a touch loud perhaps but it was great. Fish and chips were delicious, light crispy batter and chips that...More

The food was so so. The fried cod, which is supposed to be their special dish, was completely dry inside. The crumble&custard nice. I can't comment on service since they were understaffed. Overall kind. The main room on the ground floor takes all the fumes...More

We went for a family birthday meal. Not a good choice. The two young ladies who were serving were clearly not very experienced and had too much to do. The lack of adequate service was not their fault as they were polite, friendly and did...More

Geales has been London's most loved neighbourhood fish restaurant for over 70 years. Since 1939 this reputable restaurant has been a firm favorite with devoted locals and celebrities' alike. Geales offers a menu that retains the great British chip shop mentality... No frills, just fresh fish and fabulous service. The updated historic site provides a rustic yet chic local diner with a relaxed, nostalgic nod to the brand heritage.
