I'm not an ex-pat but I lived in the Notheast of UK for number of years, I was told that Salt and battery was similar to Christian's fish and chips in North Shields...NOT!!! the fish was so small for 11$ the mushy peas was $4 and soda can was $2, my total bill + tax was $19.60 for a tasteless overpriced Fish and chips!!!
A disgrace to real fish and chips
By roseine on 8/6/2010
As Brits living in the USA for over 4 years, we looked forward to visiting here, and made a special detour to do so....we were really disappointed. Agreeing with a previous reviewer ....the fish tasted just OK .. HOWEVER the piece was sooooo small we also felt like we had been thoroughly ripped-off. Haddock was $10, chips $6, pineapple fritter $4 (and it wasn't even a pineapple ring, just a large chunk, complete with hard inner core), can of soda $2, mushy peas $4, (and they forgot to put them in the order) .. plus tax ! No where to sit, inside or out, and not a pleasant area to sit and eat them in your car either. Felt this was not what British Fish and Chips is truly about....pretty mediocre and grossly over priced ... Real shame.... NEVER AGAIN :(
As cute as its name :)

The vibe is easy going and relaxed. A great place for a chill dinner with a friend since seating is limited. The staff is authentic and homegrown and even have English accents! I honestly felt like an Englishman just having his everyday meal. It was fun. Restaurants that specialize in one dish such as A Salt and Battery and its Fish and Chips are what I love about this culinary city. Hope you have the craving soon!
The Best Fish and Chips
By bklyngurl5 on 8/13/2008
I first heard of A Salt & Battery on Bobby Flay's show, Throwdown. Their fish and chips are authentic and utterly fantastic. The crust of the fish is thin and crunchy, not thick and soggy like most. The homemade tartar sauce is the perfect accompaniment and the best that I've ever had. The chips are good too, not mushy or soggy, but perfectly cooked with a nice texture. This place has a lot of personality. Just as a heads up, there's not a lot of seating.
Not in our name.....

As an ex-pat, desperatly missing his Fish and Chips, we undertook the journey to A Salt and Battery after checking out the website. Instead of the bright shop front and sprightly looking interior which we saw on the website. We were greeted by a dark, dingy little place, which looked more at home in London during the blitz. However we ordered Fish and Chips x 4 plus 1 sausage, and had a wait of nearly 30 minutes, despite the shop being empty when the order was placed. Indeed when we finally received our food, the place was packed with diners all waiting for their orders such was the backlog. The fare itself was ok, the fish was good, however the chips tasted like they had been left out all night and just re-heated in oil. The sausage was nice but at nearly $6 a pop it should be. As a customer I felt disappointed and although I may go back in the future, I would not recommend taking a special trip there at this point in time.
