I was on a guided walk and the leader said this was the best fish and chips in Brighton... however, I would disagree and say that the chips weren't proper seaside chips as I'd expected! Average, generic take-away tasting chips. Apparently the fish was tasty though. Pricing was probably higher than I'd expect for the fish dishes but perhaps take... More

It's a shame that visitors to Brighton probably see Harry Ramsdens and go there. THIS is the best fish and chip place. The service is amazing. Their salads, starters and mains in the restaurant are perfect and very generous portions. Their take away is great too obviously.

Always busy and very popular with locals and tourists. Prices are average but it could have a much better vegetarian choice.

Bankers wasn't a find on my first visit to Brighton but was recommended by a local. How right they were as the food was seriously good and great value too! A generous helping of whitebait was followed by cod roe, mushy peas and chips all washed down by a bottle of really pleasant white wine. After a tip I had... More

In Brighton for a dinner and dance function and visited Bankers again on the Friday evening - a good decision. Immediately greeted by Laura who recognised us from a previous visit in November and we had our wobbly table quickly levelled by Maria who was quickly nicknamed 'wedgy' (careful!) because of her expertise with a wooden wedge to sort out...

I promised my Mum I'd write a review on her behalf as she had the most wonderful birthday fish and chips at Bankers. We had a big group and the staff were excellent to accommodate us. The fish and chips were amazing and the portions a very good size. They made a real effort to make my mum's day special... More

Every time we are here in Brighton, the whole family we pour ourselves into the capable hands of the wonderful and friendly staff that serve us great fish and chips and each time we leave as happy customers. In my opinion they have to be one of the best fish and chips places in the UK. Beside the usual cod,... More
