great take away

while this fish and chip changed hands (I think in 2014) the standard has not changed and remains one of the best in Hastings

Small but, nice. The food was fabulous and fresh - as you would expect from a fish bar with takeaway. There was not a lot of tables and people were waiting outside until there was one free. The staff were very nice and delivered our meal after only about 10 minutes. A long wait could occur depending on how many... More

Always the best freshly cooked fish & Chips. Very small eating area inside but worth waiting for a table as they turn over customers very quickly. Always visit here when down in Hastings.

While visiting Hastings we were happy to find this restaurant. We were not sitting in but happy to take away. The queueing was about 10 minutes but well worth the wait. The portions are quite large and they are very tasty, so if you don't want the extra chips loaded onto your paper just say so.

Seemed to be a decent chippy, but the fish was just NOT good. Felt horrible about having to bin it. At least the chips were decent.

We have been coming Hastings for many a year and always visit the Blue Dolphin - sadly the chips aren't as they used to be - th efish is great but the chips used to be double fried and crispy - they are just 'bog standard'. This may be due to a change in ownership or staff since the people... More

went to this restaurant today ,must say you cannot beat this place for the best fishnchips . my only fault is they overfill your plate with chips!!!!! I watched the waitress collecting plates and every one of them had chips left on them, I think that is a complete waste of food and perhaps they should make their chip portions... More

Living here there are a few proper chippies the the locals regularly use and recommend, this is one of them. There are 5 that I would recommend and this is probably my joint 2nd choice. This along with its location does mean that it gets VERY busy! You'll see the que snaking out of the take away door, but stick... More

In a seaside town blessed with many fish restaurants, this unassuming little cafe is surely the best by a country mile. Holidaymakers queue outside for its superb fish and chips, while the knowing regulars squeeze into the tiny restaurant or - even better - take a seat in the sun in front of the shop. Your meal is usually cooked... More
