Had lunch at the restaurant this week with my parents, food average and service poor. The manager was eating food behind the counter while preparing food, not what you would want to see while sitting waiting for your meal. Would not revist

The fish is delicious - tender and really white. The chips are great too. Can eat in or get a take out. Slightly on the pricey side but worth it.

It does what it does well - mostly. Have been many times over the past 4 years and sometimes it's exceptional and at others, just so-so. Service is good and the fish usually fresh and coated in a light crispy batter. Chips are ok to. My only disappointment is that they rarely have my favorite, skate available. Look out for... More

Amazingly good fish and chips - one of the best we've ever had. The portion was HUGE. Haddock and Cod were both incredible. Service was excellent. We can't wait to go back.

We visited Bankers on a weekday lunchtime and it wasn't too busy at the time. It's clean and the service is good. The food was very good (excellent fish and chips) and the wines available weren't overpriced. It was certainly the best fish and chips I've had in a very long time.

We ordered 38 portions of take away cod and chips for a group trip to Brighton. Maria and her staff were hugely helpful, having the whole order ready for us to collect and packing everything into boxes so that we could take it to the beach. The staff were extremely efficient, and the food was really excellent, especially the fish.... More

As we live in Brighton, we've been here a number of times but the recent visit wasn't very good. The fish did seem fresh but the chips were cooked in something that wasn't quite nice and they weren't crispy. I do wonder if the reputation of Bankers means it's not doing what it used to? For a chip shop, their... More

The surroundings are lovely but unfortunately the food doesn't really live up to the decor. The chips were quite tasteless and many of them had been cooked to the point where there wasn't much potato inside. The fish batter wasn't crispy it was more just hard although the fish was cooked to order. The biggest issue was that the fish... More
