There has been a fish and chip shop at these premises since 1968. The original name of the chippie was called Barracuda. Then in 1988 Andreas Ttoffalli took the business over and changed the trading name to Toff’s of Muswell Hill. Mr Ttoffalli won best Fish and Chip Shop in the UK as voted by The Seafish Industry Authority and The British Potato Council in 1989.
In 1999 George and Costas Georgiou took over Toff’s and ran it according to Mr T’s winning formula, and recently they won the Best British Restaurant in London as voted by the Archant group of newspapers in their Food and Drink Awards. Furthermore, the two brothers took it to another level, literally, by expanding it to the first floor and adding the Captain's Table. George sadly passed away in April 2020, however his wife Giga and son Christopher have come on board to run Toffs to continue George's legacy.
Toff’s of Muswell Hill prides itself in serving fresh fish bought directly from the UK’s fish docks. We coat the fish in our specially blended batter mix and we fry in refined ground nut oil. The menu has been extended to include skate, rock, salmon and many other soles. Toff’s is a local Fish and Chip shop that considers itself family friendly and serves food in a hospitable manner, where people feel that they arrive as a customer but leave as a friend.
"Come in as a customer, leave as a friend"
Toff’s is a member of The National Federation of Fish Friers and The British Potato Council. We are part of the Good Catch Initiative and involved in their social responsibility campaign. We are aware of the role we play in our environment and Toff’s aims to help fish stocks recover by using only fish from sustainable sources. We only use fully grown fish from suppliers who can trace them back to the trawlers as well as how they were caught and what fishing methods they used. This is our commitment in serving fresh and quality fish to our customers.
