Golden Union is a quintessential London chippy. Homemade mushy peas? Check. Battered sausage? Check. Cod the size of a horse’s head? Absolutely. Golden Union is a very solid spot to spend an hour. The chairs are comfy, the tables most definitely aren’t made from the remnants of a child’s slide, and there’s even some of those ultra cool neon signs, to appease your inner Tracey Emin fan. For fifteen quid you can have some tasty fish and chips, the battered king prawns if you’re feeling adventurous/treasonous, plus a cup of tea. Lovely.
