Fish & Chips and London go hand in hand and at the heart of this story for over 50 years has been The Sea Shell of Lisson Grove. Still a Family owned business after all this time we continue to operate on strong values, proud to be a fixture of our local community with a loyal regular following.

Out of the ashes of the 2nd World War The SeaShell was set up to be the purveyor of the finest Fish & Chips, it was instantly a massive hit to visitors from far and wide. Frequented by all walks of life, from the good old cab driver, through the upper echelons of society and celebrity, even royalty choose The SeaShell as the trusted vendor for their own Fish & Chip fix.

As the times have evolved so has our restaurant, still a place where local businesses and tourists rub shoulders with the wonderful residents of Marylebone, our seafood remains the freshest available. Our classic Fish & Chips will always remain the core of everything we do, we also enjoy serving a variety of daily market dishes and seafood specialities.

As we look towards the next 50 years, we strive to be as sustainable as we can so we can continue to welcome many more guests from far and wide to create their own favourite Fish & Chip memories.
