We ate here one evening last week and enjoyed our meals a good deal. My Grannie had a busy fish shop so I know the game well. The place was clean and tidy and service pleasant if not very friendly. The rock/huss/Dogfish call it what you will, was excellent as was the cod. Portions were good size and well cooked.... More

My son pre-ordered a take away fish and chips. . We usually use Osbournes but they were not answering the phone. Usually if you phone first you would think this meant it would be freshly cooked .What a disappointment for what was going to be a bit of a treat.Fish batter was very hard and dark brown.Fish grey, not flakey...

Have been visiting Trawlers in Seaford for many years and is a favourite with family and friends. Just can't beat the excellent service. Always very helpful and courteous - nothing is too much trouble. A busy little restaurant serving fish/chips/pies/and other items - everything arrives freshly cooked. Just can't beat Trawlers for the very best in fish 'n chip supper... More

Went here for dinner one sunny evening, service was quick and fairly polite. Dinner disappointing, small portion of chips even though it was large. Chips looked like they had been sitting there all afternoon, we had salt and vinegar and wish we had, drowned in vinegar and smothered it salt, wasnt an enjoyable experience. Shame as I'd heard fairly good... More

We have eaten regularly at Trawlers since we discovered it having moved to the area three years ago; so had no hesitation in taking very discerning friends there this week - we and they were not disappointed. OK you may either love or hate the retro decor but we love it, however it is the quality of the fish and... More

We ate at Trawlers this evening and ordered medium huss and medium cod with chips. The fish was cooked perfectly to order, the batter was thin and crisp. The chips actually tasted of potato, unlike those served in some restaurants, and were nicely fried. No excess oil or grease anywhere. Everything was piping hot and served with lemon and two... More

Ok, so you are in Seaford, and naturally want some fish and chips. I would recommend Osbournes take-away down the road, eat then on the beach. Trawlers Restaurant isn't anything to get to get excited about. Elderly visitors can't seem to vet enough of this place, and still like their drinks can served to them by a waiter. Probably not...

(Ate in restaurant) Overcooked, and therefore dry fish. Ok chips and tins of drink. Elder folk on both sides of us, very enthusiastic about the plain, over rated fare. Feels like he place could do with a thorough deepclean. Walk past this one, or carry it to the beach to eat. Ho hum.

We had Cod & Huss both of which were very overcooked, the batter was so hard I could not cut it with a knife. When we complained we were given some story about the fish being thick which needed more cooking ! No offer of a discount or indeed free drinks. Hence no tip left We will not be visiting... More
