The Catch, Bushey

The Catch is a family friendly fish and chips store/restaurant in Bushey Heath. We visited the place yesterday and found it to be a fantastic restaurant staffed by lovely people.

At £9.50 for standard battered cod, it is slightly pricey, but the quality is amazing and the fish chunky. The batter is crispy, yet isn't oily to put you off (you can also have them grilled), while the cod itself is soft and meaty at the same time. Served with a generous portion of chunky chips (though they are pretty mediocre compared to the one we get at Bardsley's Brighton) and home made tartar sauce to top it off. For starters we had a a huge fish cake and prawn salad, both which were generously portioned and incredibly satisfying.

The staffs and owner were incredibly friendly and polite. It does get very busy at times and can be very difficult to flag one of the waitresses. It also happens to be very pricey (expect to pay around £15-20 per head), but a two course lunch and early dinner deals are available from Monday to Saturday (a snip at £7.95 per head).

Overall we love it and would not hesitate to dine there again.
