Very good freshly cooked Fish - nice welcome

Staff were really cheerful and helpful. Our fish was cooked fresh to order and it was extremely good. Chips were tasty.Tea was strong - no 'real' coffee which was disappointing and the dirty sauce bottles could do with a wipe. Wonder how they can serve food without a customer toilet though.

It was my first visit to Hastings and we ate at the Blue Dolphin - I ordered fish and chips and they were amazing! The fish was really fresh and tasty and the chips were crispy and perfect. I also tried some of their curry sauce and it was the best I have EVER tasted!!! I thoroughly recommend eating here... More

I spent the day in Hastings and one of the highlights of the day was my fish and chips at the Blue Dolphin! The service was perfect! We had our food on our table exactly 2 minutes after we placed our order! I will definitely eat here again! Thanks so much!

We have been to the restaurant part several times when we visit Hastings and we have not been disappointed. We can always get a nice strong cup of tea and a reasonably priced meal that fills us up. My only gripe is that on our most recent visit I had to remind the waitress for our drinks, which we were... More

You're by the sea, you need fish and chips. It's a simple equation. If the sea you are besides is in Hastings, look no further that the Blue Dolphin. Yes the queue will be out of the door, but it moves quickly the food is delicious and you can stroll over the road and sit on the beach to enjoy... More

The food itself was delicious; we payed £6.70 to eat in with cod and chips and £4.30 for jumbo sausage and chips. Drinks were a little pricey (£1.40 for a can of coke). Tiny little cafe with tables for 4 people inside but tables outside for more. Condiments all provided for free. The dark haired waitress was so friendly and... More

Having not tried this Take - Away for quite a while we were pleasantly surprised when we tried it this week. The Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was served to us quickly and the cost was reasonable. A Good place to enjoy chips as a take away and one of the best in the old town. Enjoy.

Food was great but I cant say the same for the young blonde waitress I had take our order! I found her rude and not very interested in paying attention to what was going on around her, i witnessed her ignore tables and seemed to be paying more attention to what the other workers were doing then her own duties.
