Menu
'A seaside restaurant in the city', Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack offers fresh fish and seafood direct from day boats around the British Isles. Think fresh Norfolk lobsters, Scottish langoustines, Pembrookshire mussels, line caught Cornish seabass, Portland Pearl oysters and whole Devon cock crab. All washed down with a glass of our homemade 'Bonnie Mary' or a bottle of Cremant on our sunny terrace.

This is a nice little cosy restaurant that serve a range of seafood dishes (mainly fish). It is casual and not too expensive compared to other seafood restaurant in London. But I would not say it is rock cheap place to dine. We spent around £30pp for a two courses including an oyster and non-alchoalic drinks. I liked the way they served a knob of butter on a seashell that came with the breads. It was different to getting it on a plate. Overall I felt the food on the evening was a little disappointing. For my starters I had the Isle of Man Queen Scallops served with a combination of Chorizo, Cauliflower, Apple and Lemon. But I felt the soured and pickle flavour was too strong that it over-powered the flavour of scallops. I would had prefered the Salt Cod Brandade “Scotch Egg”, Smoked Taramasalata instead as my starter. I thought that the best of the evening. Main, I tried the Wild Cornish Brill served with Mussels, Spinach & Herb Gnocchi, Sea Vegetables, Champagne Butter Sauce. It was a nice dish in terms of the combination of ingredients. However, I found the top of the fish was harder than you expect from a pan-dried fish and I felt the fish had been left for a while before it was served to the table.

Really good. Can't say enough positive things about this place. Small, rustic looking seafood 'shack' in the middle of Fitzrovia, serving up deliciously fresh seafood dishes and fantastic cocktails. Absolutely loved it.

Perfectly cooked turbot, pollock and razor clams. Delicious crabs and a great choice of really tasty wine. All that, then amazingly good desserts like strawberry Eton mess with basil jelly. Try the Jura sparkling white too! Brilliant service too. Friendly and attentive.

Delighted with my fish & chips. Chips was fried with beef dripping, crunchy and fresh but not super hot when served. Tartare sauce was light and flavourful. It wasn't too sharp, just great with the chips. Best I've had in London for a long while. While I wouldn't say the mushy peas was a let down, it didn't feel like it was freshly prepared and it needed something extra to it.

Very good fish, probably some of the best and freshest for the price in the neighbourhood. Menu changes frequently, and the fish is not overcomplicated. The fish and chips is truly excellent and at only £15. Slightly tacky interior, but nice service. Dinner for 2 w/ wine approx £50.

Bonnie Gull - came as a recommendation, never really eaten/enjoyed seafood in the UK so this came as a nice surprise. A real hidden gem. We sat outside in the most glorious weather and enjoyed plate after plate of delicious mouth watering food. Recommend starting with a cocktail, then sample some Oysters. The Hake (the menu varies day to day) was exceptional, and I would also recommend the Queenies to start, which came as a surprise as I had no idea what they were! This place is first class, so "never judge a book" has never been more applicable. Shack this looks like, 5* it tastes.

Bonnie Gull started off as a pop-up on Tooley Street and a year later has found its permanent digs in West London just west of Goodge St. As the name may suggest, its aim is to provide fresh quality seafood at reasonable prices. Bonnie Gull mostly manages to pull it off although the food was largely under seasoned and what saltiness was missing from the fish seemed to have been picked up by the service. The restaurant was mostly empty (not surprising given that we started at 6pm) but gradually filled up towards the end of the meal. The waitress was a bit eager to take our order and came back a number of times within 15 minutes to prompt us to order. While not a massive issue, it was a bit unsettling as we weren't advised of any time constraint for the table nor was one mentioned when we booked. Our starters arrived fairly quickly but then there was a long lull before the mains made an appearance, and then once we had finished we were quickly brought the bill and told the next table had arrived early so we would need to leave. Seriously, BG? You kicking us out? I've had one night stands that were less eager to see me leave come morning... Starters wise, we went for the crispy fried squid with chilli, moules sans frites, smoked fish (herring?) on toast, and the queenies. The mussels were fairly generic and the smoked fish failed to impress greatly. The squid was crunchy with a good kick from the thinly sliced chillies although could have benefitted from slightly less time in the fryer and a tad more salt. On the plus side, the batter was excellent and lacking any oiliness at all - a good sign that someone in the kitchen knows their way around hot oil. The queenies were seared lightly and served with chorizo - a near perfect dish bar a slight grittiness on some of the scallops. Mains were less varied as both girls opted for the beer battered haddock with chunky chips while the guys looked to the monkfish with cockles and Cornish hake with potato gnocchi. The fish'n'chips were well fried and served in generous portions. Accompanied by a homemade tartar sauce, it went down a treat and was a fan favourite. The monkfish in its pistachio crust was a tad overdone but tasty when combined with the pea puree. Sadly, the hake was a disappointment as it was over-cooked and dry to the touch, while the potato gnocchi was under-seasoned to the point of tastelessness. The one bright spot was the crispy skin which was most excellent. Now I know fish is a tricky dish to serve up - I've had plenty of fish fails myself - but when it's your raison d'etre it's reasonable to expect a higher standard. The wine list is reasonably priced and we opted for a light bottle of rose that matched well with the seafood menu. At £22, I'm more than happy to call that a good value option. Overall, it's not badly priced but I wasn't a huge fan. There are better places to eat in the area and since Homeslice isn't too far away, I'd aim for that instead!
