Delicious Fish and Chips. Prices very good. Central location in Western Road [Brighton/Hove border]. Recommended.

Looking for some cheer on a cold, wet, December night, and wanting some comfort food, we decided on fish and chips. This Restaurant, previously a bank we were told, has all the charm and atmosphere of a bank, No chance of romantic liaisons here! No friendly greetings or smiles on our entrance, in fact nothing to make us welcome. Our... More

We have had takeout twice from bankers, once it was so busy we had to queue and the second time it was quiet. Both times our fish was so greasy and oily that it seeped through the box it is served in. My jeans got oil stains on it was quite gross. The Chips were tasty but again overly greasy.... More

We always get our F&C from Bankers and don't think of going anywhere else...for the past 10 years. However, we do have an issue with ordering while eating in; Even though you pay extra for salad, instead of chips, they will not allow you to have 50/50. I don't see what the issue is to slap a few chips on... More

Went for dinner with few friends & this was the worse Fish & Chips Restaurant I ever been too. The price was over the top & the service was terrible. I will not recommend this place to anyone !

The service was good, the restaurant is nice and the fish is superb but, for me, fish and chips is quite a bland meal. The chips were just good but the portion was very generous and came with a lovely tartare sauce. I think you could have an equally satisfying and, potentially, more 'authentic' meal just from any old take... More

I enjoyed my visit to Bankers, located at the sharp end of Western Road - you know, surrounded by estate agents, tired coffee joints and nervously waiting for the trendy makeover which will surely engulf this part of town before too long. We wandered in late on a Tuesday evening, and more or less had the place to ourselves. It's... More

Cod & chips great- batter crispy, chips chunky and fresh, served with tartare sauce. Unfortunately followed by the worst lemon meringue pie I have ever eaten - gluey, synthetic-tasting and awful. Service ok and friendly, but a little unattentative - takes a while to catch their eye when they are busy. Restaurant clean, except toilets (gents) - stank of urine... More
