Try the Kebabs

I will agree with the reviewers that their chips can be hit and miss but I can't comment on the fish - for us it's all about the kebabs. They do lovely chicken shish kebabs with plenty of salad and decent sauces to go with them. The portion size is generous and if you choose delivery they will... read more

We go to Trawlers regularly with friends to eat fish and chips in the restaurant. We always get very good food and service, good value for money. Would recommend takeaway too.

The food in here is great, always hot and freshly cooked. I would recommend this for both takeaway and eating in. Portions in restaurant are huge.

If the management read this review take it seriously.!!! You have a very good fish (Cod) often run out of large ones in mid service !! STOP to produce these HORRIBLE Chips ... maybe the variety is not appropriate and your method of frying needs to be revisited ?!? Why not be the first to produce FISH and FRITES the... More

Nice polite service. Overpriced small portions. Ordered large and medium cod. Both looked medium. Tasteless. Not impressed. Never again.

I live in Seaford and Trawlers used to be the best fish and chip shop However I have just been today and the take away was awful. I could count the old dry chips on one hand - they didn't even cover the bottom of the tray and were cold and stale. The fish was wet and barely cooked and... More

Have eaten takeaway fish and chips from Trawlers over the years and they have usually been good, but today I ate inside and had cod and chips and I think I can say that it was the worse fish and chips I have ever eaten. When the food was brought out my first impression was that the chips looked awful... More

Bought a take away from Trawlers and was very pleased with the meal. Not greasy. The fish was tasty with light, crisp batter and the chips were fluffy and properly cooked. I would recommend.

A very popular establishment and always busy both in the restaurant and take away. The fish and chips portions are very generous, freshly cooked and always hot. Service is quick and the waiters friendly and pleasant.

The food was okay, fish and chips with a cup of tea. I would avoid using the toilets - not good - the decor seemed worn out and tired, nearly retro! The card machine doesn't work - so a walk to the cash machine to pay didn't help the relaxing lunch. Maybe okay for a takeaway, I wouldn't eat in... More
