Great sustainable fish

We visited here last Friday lunchtime, while in the area on a long weekend away. The restaurant seemed nice and clean and the historic photo canvasses on the walls were a lovely touch. We both ordered a large cod and chips + mushy peas and we both struggled to finish! It was great to learn from... read more

Waited at the door of this almost empty restaurant then finally got seated, placed our order for 2 meals and drinks, the wrong drinks arrived followed 20 minutes later by one of the 2 meals, the waitress offered to order us the second meal but we decided to leave.

I visited here years ago with a friend who lived in Brighton and dragged my wife around until I found it, We were joined by friends and all loved the food, especially the fish, one of my favourite chip shops anywhere.

Ordered large cod and large chips and was surprised how small the portions were compared to other resturants. The Ketchup was very thin and vinegary. Staff friendly and resturant looked clean. The Chicken looked good so maybe try that and give it a second chance.

Was in bankers for supper tonight, was I surprised at the portions of the fish and chips, ohh yes, pleased to say it was not skimped, I had the breaded haddock, my two friends had battered cod and chips, empty plates returned😊 Great all round through the shared dessert to the coffees. Thank you for the good service Damian

I love the fish and chips and seafood medleys the brighton branch does. Everything is always crispy and never soggy batter insight.

Bankers have recently taken over an existing fish & chip restaurant run by an Icelandic firm that provided fish from sustainable stocks. I went to the new Bankers branch on 31.12.14 for lunch and the quality of the food has deteriorated (the fish was tast-less and watery). Also, although it is a restaurant Bankers has introduced a system whereby you... More

went for fish and chips - one cod and one calamari - the service was nice, fast and efficient - the fish was good but as so often in England far too much batter, at least it was crisp - has no one in the country heard of using Tempura or at least offering the option - the tartar sauce... More

Large, clean restaurent with no smells from the frying. Ordered 2 Haddock & chips which were cooked to order. Enormous portion I struggled to finish it all - and that's a record. Superb food and service.
