"Best fish and chip in Brighton by far"

We read some good reviews about this chippie and thought we would give it a go. We have been to Brighton a few times and have been disappointed with some of the fish and chip shops. The fish and chips were OMG the best we have had for a long time. There was a group of 7 of us and... read more

The fish and chips were amazing (we had between us cod, haddock and scampi)! The mushy peas were spot on (which is rare in the South)! All the staff were very friendly and had a laugh with us! I will be back and I would definitely recommend it!

We arrived just before closing time and although they were just finishing the chap who served us made us feel welcome and cooked us something fresh. He even let us sit and eat on the table outside, although it was takeaway only. The food itself was as good as it gets for a fish and chip shop. It's easy to... More

We went there on the spur just before 7 pm. The restaurant was full, and we had to wait for 30 minutes for a table, which we spent in an old-fashioned boozer close by. We had a large portion of the black cod and a medium portion of scampi with chips and mushy peas. Everything was well cooked and the... More

Rang to enquiry what time this recommended restaurant closed and just made it from Central Brighton by taxi. Actually it is easily walkable from the Centre of Brighton. Right from the start it was apparent that everyone concerned with this restaurant is a true professional, able to explain where the fish were sourced and the specialities on the menu. The... More

A warm and friendly welcome as we walked through the door, speedy service (with a smile and a joke). The food was exactly right ( lovely grilled cod), and The Max Miller Memorial room to keep us occupied while we waited. Well worth a visit!

Can't think of a better place to go for a well cooked proper cod and chips - mushy peas worth a go as well.

Really nice fish and chips and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was a bit on the expensive side for fish and chips but they were very enjoyable - with mushy peas!

Well, after reading reviews I was expecting something really good. The best thing was the staff, the waitress who served us was really nice. Maybe I have been spoilt eating fish and chips up in Whitby? But this was a let down and expensive for what you got. I've never had fish with skin left on, and the fish itself... More
