Rit’s Chippy serves seafood in an informal setting and its signature dish is, unsurprisingly, fish and chips. The restaurant is divided into zones, where one is intended for quick bites and collecting takeaways, and the other for unhurried meals and shared experiences. References to the sea and fishing industry permeate the interior, such as glossy tiles with a wavy texture, blues and the colour of sand, a ceiling decor made of netting, and themed murals. The open kitchen is inspired by the chippies of the British seaside while the dining room is informed by casual French brasseries. The original ceiling vaults are a good fit and keep the building’s story alive: it dates back to the 19th century and has an industrial past.
Part of the furniture is custom-designed and built for the location and specific business needs, and is complemented with pieces from Pedralli.
Considering the large concentration of cafes and restaurants in the area, the interior is vital to attracting customers. Together with the eatery’s name, the parts of the interior seen through the window reveal the philosophy of the place and its menu without the need for loud means of advertising.
