Maddy’s fish bar will be located in New Cross, next door to The London Particular. Being an established café and a unique gem in the local community, The London Particular has managed to bring culinary change to New Cross. When the owners of the chip shop next door to The LP approached Becky to see if she wanted to take on their shop, Becky immediately thought of Maddy and her passion for fish and anything British, which led to the birth of Maddy's Fish Bar project.
Becky is the owner of The LP and a pioneer of local change in New Cross. The London Particular was recently awarded 5 stars in Timeout’s food guide. She will be a partner in the Fish Bar next door and will contribute with all her vast experience of local producers and add creative twists to the daily changing specials.
Madeline has worked in London’s top restaurants. Her training began at the young age of 15 working as a prep-chef assistant for Billingsgate Fish market’s weekend courses. This was the catalyst for her enrolling in Westminster Kingsway College’s acclaimed catering course. After graduating from WK she had a job waiting for her at Caprice Group where she had been doing work experience as part of her course. She started working at the group’s Scott’s fish restaurant in Mayfair spending nearly two years under Head Chef Dave Mccarthy. Seeking new challenges, she was recruited by Mark Hix for his then newly opened Hix of Soho. Climbing the ranks within the company, Maddy got involved in pioneering Hix’s streetfood concept, The Fishdog van.
Maddy’s menu will be familiar and simple yet new and exciting. Through simple tweaks such as herb infused tempura batter and skin on chips re-invents the classic dish. Keeping the northern tradition of curry sauce is another exciting addition to Maddy’s sauces, which will all be made on site showing the condiments the respect it deserves.
