Dickens’s Dictionary Of The Thames From Its Source To The Nore. 1885. An Unconventional Handbook – Charles Dickens, 1885:

Fish Dinners. – The typical fish dinner of London is the extraordinary entertainment offered at Greenwich – perhaps the most curious repast ever invented by the ingenuity of the most imaginative hotel-keeper. Many courses of fish prepared in every conceivable way, followed by ducks and peas, beans and bacon, cutlets, and other viands, so arranged as to stimulate a pleasing, if somewhat expensive thirst, are washed down at these Gargantuan feeds by the choicest brands at the highest prices known to civilisation.
