Glass of water for Mr Grainger

When you first walk in, you might think you've walked back in time to 1976, and the cast of 'Are you being served' are having a meal during a break from filming on location. I actually think that's part of what makes this place great though. It's clean, the owner and staff are friendly and... read more

Although It was not the most outstanding feed, the family felt that the fish was a good quality however as usual the chips were a tad on the soggy side. However, like normal it was tasty and the price is justifiable.

Good fish and chips. It feels a bit of a time warp but that is what fish and chips are. Service is competent. Ok with kids. Generally a nice place!

Have not been here for years, no reason other than hunger and Seaford have not coincided until this week. Didn't fancy sitting on a windy seafront so used the restaurant. Nice and clean, service good but not dynamic (would be nice if the waiter used the term "no worries" a lot less) fish and chips hot and crispy and in... More

You can rely on the food being decent and hot at Trawlers. The restaurant decor is a little dated, but thats part of the fun - it reminds me of the Golden Egg of the 1970s. Customers are not trusted with tartare sauce though, this will be placed on the plate for you, you can't help yourself!

After being away from the UK for a year I was desperate for some fish and chips on my return, this place did not disappoint. Good big piece of Cod with crispy batter and a big portion of Chips. Would definitely recommend this place.

This is by far the best fish and chip shop we have ever been in! The portions are big and fresh. You get great service with a smiley face and the traditional background makes this by far the best good old seaside fish and chip shop!

Went with the Family after a long day out, the staff are friendly and efficient the orders were taken quickly and the food served freshly cooked and piping hot. Superb choice of fish including Huss, Haddock, Plaice and Skate along with all the other favourites. Drinks list is limited but reasonably priced and the portions very good value for money.... More
