Classic Fish and Chip Service

A real touch of old world service and food nicely presented with a touch of nostalgia too. It felt like a blast from the past right down to the vinegar container on the tables

Nice fish, pretty good chips on most occasions. I prefer the takeaway, its better value for money especially if you get drinks elsewhere. Seem to be a bit tight giving out plastic bags , which you need to get them down to the beach

Very pleased to have found this chip shop. We had medium cod and chips and it was an excellent piece of cod, fresh and white. I don't normally like batter as I can find it too greasy, but this was crispy and just like fried fish should be. The chips were plentiful and fine. I certainly will be back. I... More

Now I live locally have been getting the take away usually but we decided to go for a sit down one evening as a change and were not disappointed. Crispy batter and nice fat chips though portions are large!. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with it at reasonable cost. Service with a smile

When we visit seaford, this is the only place we visit for fish N chips. There may be other chip shops, we have no idea, as we dont even look. Never had a bad meal yet, lovely.

Takeaway, over priced and the cod was of very poor quality, and very bland, strange had to wait for two large cod that should have cooked quicker? Took the meal to the sea front, had to eat most of it because we were hungry, but not at all enjoyable Having spoken to a local, who stated that "Trawlers " use... More

We ate in the restaurant rather than the take-away. Don't be fooled by the interior which is pretty tired - its very clean and its worth the visit because of the food. We had cod and chips - medium sized which was massive, and boy was it good. A 20 minute wait for the food but the restaurant was busy... More

Traditional fish and chips to take away or eat in, and they also have great daily specials in the restaurant. I look out for the halibut which does come in small, medium or large and is delicious grilled plain or with herbs. The small is enough for me as I like to leave room for their home made puds, particularly... More

Food really nice but eating area a bit cramped. Service slow and not very friendly. No parking nearby. Fish cooked well and tasted fresh with batter nice and crispy. Chips could have been better. Good price. Also do counter/take away fish and chips

The best fish and chips in Seaford. That's just the way it is. The chips are lovely, curry sauce great, lovely bit of cod. Yes indeed.
