Fish & Chips! (South London version)

Destination is Maddy's Fish Bar

Reasons to go:

· Every night is gluten-free fish & chips night

· This place actually got funding for their top-of-the-line frying equipment via a successful kickstarter campaign which is pretty amazing

· Your intrepid GF Meetup scouts have visited this place in advance and rate it as om nom nom

· Maddy + her staff seem very interested in the whole gluten-free thing and it would be nice to get them some extra GF fans

· IPA Gluten-Free beer is present

Maddy can and does provide gluten-free fish and chips by using gluten-free batter & having a separate fryer for gluten and non-gluten things. There are however some things on the menu that are not gluten-free and when we visited Maddy and her staff were able to clearly identify these. For example, they didn’t have any gluten-free buns so a GF chip-butty was not on the menu. We could probably bring GF buns onto the menu, if we want, by pre-arrangement.

If we get a big enough group we might possibly be able to make a reservation of sorts. Otherwise we just need to pitch up and potentially wait a little while in order to sit together. It is a small place with room for about 12 people total.

Optional pre-visit to Ruby Tuesdays

Greenwich Market hosts Ruby Tuesdays (purveyor of artisan GF cupcakes, donuts and other delights) and is a 20 minute appetite-raising walk away from Maddy’s.  

Getting there

London Overground from London Bridge is probably best since New Cross station is 1 minute away from Maddy’s

    Kim, if you are joining us we are walking to maddys now and are about 10 minutes out

    2 questions for everyone!

    1. Would you like me to "arrange" that we can have gluten-free buns? If yes, I'd simply contact Maddy's to confirm they would and could toast them safely and bring along a packet of buns. If anyone says yes, I'll do this.

    2. Who would like to take the optional pre-visit to Ruby Tuesdays? Count me in if anyone else wants to do that, in which case we meet there at say 1615 to allow time to fuss over cupcakes and walk over to Maddy's for 1700

      Okay folks, no GF buns and -

      Vanessa and Maria, look forward to seeing you at 1615 at Ruby's.

      Joanna, if we don't see you at Ruby's see you 1700 at Maddy's.

      Kim may or may not be able to join us, so there are 4 or 5 of us for Maddy's.

    Really wanted to try this & it's in my neck of the woods. so I'm gutted to say that I have to cancel this one. Hopefully someone else will fill my spot. Have a Ruby Tuesday's donut for me : (

    Bonsoir Ben!
    1. I'm keen on trying their gluten-free battered fish this time - no bun for me thus
    2. I definitely would love to discover Ruby Tuesday with you - how big must be my shopping bag? ;-)

    August 26, 2014

  • Ben R.

    Howdy folks, I've now confirmed Saturday afternoon as the day and time, since this was the preference of 3 folks (not including me) and 1 person each couldn't make the Friday and Saturday.

    Happy to put my name to this second recommendation! :) Not only is this gluten-free fish n chips but it's top drawer fish n chips- what an honour- thanks Maddy! It's definitely worth the trip.
