I've been a regular at the Blue Dolphin, but the last time I went the batter on the fish was not particularly good. It was not crisp nor did it taste particularly great. It is the first occasion I did not eat the batter at all! (Now that's a first!) The batter used to be excellent. The chips however as... More

Living on old reputation from some time ago. There are better F&C to be had in the Old Town. Try lose the beating lake next to the hub.

I just love coming here, the fish and chips are always good and the staff are lovely. Never any bones in fish or grease on plate unlike some of the more expensive restaurants.

Saw good reviews here and needed a hit of f&c so drove to Hastings from Sedlescombe. Night trip, horrendous job navigating ring road etc and my wife didn't want to hang around. Began to doubt wisdom of excursion but very glad I got to experience this take-away meal. Crisp, fleshy chips done in fresh oil, and a superb piece of... More
