It's quite out of the way and unless you're in that area you wouldn't walk past this place but having been told by a friend to go try it, I can say it's worth the few extra minutes walk - after all help burn off the calories. Lovely light but crispy batter on the cod. Great fish, which I guess... More

Visited Bardsley's for the first time after reading positive reviews and we weren't disappointed. A traditional fish and chip serving all the favourite fish dishes at very reasonable prices. Our meals were all freshly cooked to order and served by attentive friendly staff. The batter was light and the skate was especially good. We will definitely go again when passing... More

Went with my mother as it had been recommended by a friend who knows Brighton well. They were closing but let us in anyway and prepared for us some very good portions of fish and chips. Really welcoming and nice, even though we had arrived a bit late. Conclusion: Good food, good service and at good prices. A must if... More

Was really looking forward to eat in here, however really disappointed, visited towards end of lunch opening hours and found the fish and chips were cooked in oil that was way past it's life span, when oil needs changing you get that horrible bitter taste to the fried food and it is dark brown rather than golden brown. Some of... More

Last minute dinner, midweek. I had the cod, chips, mushy peas, my friend had the plaice, chips and mushy peas. Both were freshly cooked, hot, good size portions. Staff very friendly, even when I asked about the bread and butter (see previous review), good to know they listen to customers comments. Overall, a great visit, left very full.

Went at 13.30, late lunch. Friendly staff, fresh cooked fish, lovely chips and all the condiments you need. The fish is the best batter any where, wish they could teach other shops! This was my mother's favorite chip shop and she went there for 50 years, often getting take away for all her work mates. Reckon if you have visited... More

Great menu, hot food, nice friendly staff, great size portions. More than your average chip shop. Would go back again. Just one problem, please change your bread for your bread and butter. Cheap bread doesn't work. Just giving my honest opinion. Overall, a great place to eat.

Too cut a long review short, this must have been an off day. I would guess they where using not the freshest oil and most of the specials where not available. I will say the fish was very fresh, but the batter was very dark and quite heavy, not light and crisp. The chips had the same over used oil... More

We live in London but checked online for best fish & chips in Brighton and this place came up and you know what? We were not dissapointed one bit... we had the grilled large cod in a garlic and lemon dressing with chips and salad - fantastic! Staff very friendly too!
