Guests staying at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire can now enjoy a great British tradition right next door. The Edwardian Group London, which owns the hotel along with other Radisson Blu hotels and The May Fair, has opened a fish and chip shop beside the property.

The Great British Fish Company launched at the beginning of July and offers both a takeaway option and 50 seats for restaurant service. Patrons can sit outside, with a view over the square as they tuck in to their seaside meal. The group plans to open more locations in the near future.

The concept came about as a result of an unused space next to the hotel. With such a small amount of space to use, the group struggled to find it a purpose. Speaking to BigHospitality, the Edwardian Group’s Director of Food and Beverages, Russ Brown said, “We had conversations about what would fit in there, and what would fit in with the brand, because we do try and use British produce wherever possible. Of course you don’t get more British than a fish and chip shop.”

The space has undergone a refurbishment, complete with new extracting system to keep any frying smells away from the hotel.

When it comes to the food itself, The Great British Fish Co is striving to be the best of the best. Buying their ingredients from local and sustainable sources, they serve fresh fish straight from the market. Chip shop favourites are offered alongside culinary delights such as pork and leek sausages and handmade steak pie. Brown is confident in the quality of their goods, pointing out that, “After all there are chefs in a 5-star hotel making these up in the morning.”

Of course, there’s no need to be a guest at the hotel to partake in a portion of fish and chips from the new venture. However, if you do choose to stay, there are more quality dishes prepared by 5-star chefs awaiting you at the hotel.
