Best chip shop in Brighton

Very large restaurant on the border of Brighton and Hove. Not the cheapest fish and chips in town but certainly one of the best. Fast efficient service. Take out available

We travel a long way for these fish and chips. Always lovely batter, thin and crispy and very generous portions

Decent takeaway fish and chips but expensive for portion size and quality. Would have given 4 stars but £17 for 2 portions of cod and chips, mushy peas and a small chips and curry was a bit steep.

I have to admit that the food was a little bit below my expectation. I got an avocado & coldwater prawns. They were not prawns, they were tasteless shrimps and I didn't love the mary rose sauce which comes with it. We got a Pinot Grigio and I really didn't like it... Maybe that's because I come from Italy and... More

We visited Bankers, which was actually out of our way, as we were assured that it had the best takeaway fish and chips - they certainly are good! Quick service, hot tasty food (we recommend the salt and pepper squid!) it seems to be the perfect spot to get some traditional fish and chips and head to the seafront. My... More

The fish and chips were ok, my guess if frozen fish but still as good as any other fish and chip restaurant. The decor was traditional and a good service. Mostly catering to foreign tourists for the novelty factor although it was very clean and had a good range of food, I would go back again if in the market... More

Just had fish and chips here- quite simply the best. Crisp batter, crunchy chips and curry sauce too ( in the north they think southerners don't do curry sauce) . Huge portions. Just delicious.

Went here for late lunch, but portions were so big we didn't have dinner after! Food took a little while to come but there were 16 of us! No one managed to finish their food as it was so much! As a vegetarian i enjoyed the chips and vegetable nuggets. The meat eaters said their Fish and calamari was delicious.
