On the window it say's it's won some kind of award for cleanliness/hygiene - When ordering my chips last Wednesday night a member of staff reached in to where the chips were served picked out a chip and ate it right in front of customers, she then continued with the order she was dealing with - She shovelled chips into...

Bankers was recommended as one of the top 5 fish & chip restaurants in Brighton, and we gave it a go on this basis. The large cod & chips were enough to share between two and then some. The cod batter was light and crispy, the fish fresh. The chips were a little soggier than I like but otherwise fine.... More

On the recommendation of a friend who lives locally, we popped by Bankers for takeaway fish 'n chips to enjoy on the beach afterwards. It's actually called 'Bankers' as its located in an old bank building. We have been to many a fish 'n chips stores in Brighton and elsewhere, and I must say this is one of the best... More

Recommended by the concierge in our hotel, we went off in search of some good fish and chips. We were not disappointed! It was the best piece of haddock I've had in years, lovely chips and proper, crunchy pickled onions! Just to make things even better, the place is licensed too! So we had a nice cold beer with it....

I had fish and chips again at Bankers and was disappointed yet again. I ordered cod, cod does not have skin left on. Where was the batter, i may as well buy frozen fish in batter at the supermarket. I am from the North so perhaps more critical but been here 12 years and used to have nice fish and... More

Dear Barrie, Thank you very much for your message as we welcome all feedback from our customers. We have always used skin on Cod and Haddock in Bankers as the skin helps to keep the moisture of the fish from draining away in the cooking process. This is more typical of fish and chip shops in the South and South... More

If you like fish and chips to eat in - this is a good place - there's a retro feel about it - with things like trifle in a glass dish for pudding that made me feel like I was going back in time! The fish was very fresh, and the portions were generous. Good, friendly service, too! One of... More

Perfectly cooked fish with light, crisp batter. The BEST chips I have eaten (and I've eaten quite a few from many fish and chips shops). Very generous portions and good service. It may cost a bit more but, boy, it is worth it because you get what you pay for! QUALITY

We went recently for a family birthday and made a reservation. The staff are friendly, and the food is very very yummy indeed! The portion sizes are generous and the fish (cod) was very tasty! They also do food like chicken and pies - basically everything you'd expect in a local chippy, but in a restaurant!

Eaten in the restaurant of this fish and chips emporium. The fish are freshly cooked and chips are crisp and hot. The senior citizen lunch of fish, chips and peas with a drink is excellent value at £5.50! And a good portion!! Just a short walk from the main city centre but worth the walk, and a good stroll back... More

I was first introduced to this restaurant by my mother, who used to come here regularly with her friends, and I was knocked out by the delicious fish and chips. I then brought my husband here, who also thought they were great, and we come here every time we visit Brighton. Our favourite fish is the haddock cooked in matzo... More
