When the overwhelming hankering for beer-battered fish and chips strikes, look no further than FishSmith on Jervois Road in Herne Bay. Magic happens in the kitchen of this modest joint that sets itself apart by offering a less conventional menu than your average fish and chippery.
Be not deceived, FishSmith pays homage to the Kiwi roots by serving exquisite battered, crumbed or grilled fish, and twice fried, hand cut chips. But the buck doesn’t stop there. They have deviated from the norm by offering a smattering of other morsels, including a soft shell crab burger, fried mussels and chopped salads for those with self-restraint.
