Fish restaurant Hook to open in Pop Brixton

Fish and chip restaurant Hook is to open in Pop in London's Brixton - a new community for small and start-up businesses.

The new venue, which has room for 18 covers inside and 100 in a greenhouse, will open on 16 June after a soft launch period from 9 to 14 June.

Fish, crusted in panko crumbs are seasoned with roasted spices and will be fried in flavoured tempura batter, rather than the more conventional beer batter.

This is the second London restaurant from general manager Barry Wallace and head chef Simon Whiteside who opened their 60-cover Camden flagship in November 2014 on Parkway.

The pair started the original Hook from a small market stall in Dublin, serving mackerel and chips. They then opened a restaurant in Brussels before bringing it to London at the end of last year.

The fish, including cod, hake and megrim sole, are delivered daily from the Flying Fish Seafood Company.

Average spend per head is expected to be around £15.
