We did not book yesterday on a busy Friiday evening and they could not have been more accommodating. We had had a lovely day around Seaford and Cuckmere Valley, ending the day with a meal in Trawlers really good the halibut off the special board was excellent as was my partners plaice. Would recommend as this was our second visit.... More

First time in Seaford so was pleased to be reccommended Trawlers by a nice local lady. She said that they were Award Winning! Don't know about that but the food was good and the staff friendly. I liked the 70s Decor,but it was a bit dark in there.The restaurant seemed to reflect the town which I like being a Retro... More

The service was terrible - really slow and got the order wrong a few times. But the fish, chips and mushy peas were very nice. I think it's a bit mean to charge for sauce, though - you wouldn't have had that ten years ago!

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 efficient, and the chef(s) have... 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.
