I went here after reading good reviews, "Best fish and chips 2012" etc to celebrate my Uncle's birthday. Everything was of an average standard until my half roast chicken with millions of chips arrived. The chicken was undercooked, pink inside and tasted slimy- very unappetising. When I approached the waitress about this issue she returned from the kitchen with the... More

As it was the easter weekend me and my girlfriend decided to come to Brighton. We stumbled across bankers after visiting the beach and I can tell you now it really hit the spot after a cold day down at the beach, the service was quick and efficient and the two young lads on the sunday were really helpful when...

The food at this place is fantastic! I can't speak for the takeaway service as I always sat in to eat after work. A little on the expensive side, saveloy & chips with a pot of curry sauce and a drink was just short of £8 but I didn't mind paying that because it was delicious. I'll definitely eat there... More

I have always loved fish and chips but so many places get it badly wrong. Not so Bankers. While not greeted upon entry, the hostess was busy with a party who had just arrived, it was made clear that I could seat myself at any available table. I informed staff that I was awaiting a friend and very quickly two... More

Meals are between £5-£12 per person and even the smaller meals are substantial. Meals are good quality and fairly good value for money Friendly staff and quick service. Would recommend not ordering the large unless you're very hungry (outdid me and I was up for a large dinner)

I popped in with my husband to buy some chips to munch while we strolled up & down Western Road. Bankers (legally have to) have a notice on the wall saying to ask if you have any food allergy issues. So I asked if the white vinegar on the counter was gluten free. (I know malt vinegar isn't.) I am... More
