Wonderful seafood at the Fish Factory

Had a wonderful dinner. We ordered the Chef's Choice (maybe the wrong name), but a great platter arrived with mussels, sole, halibut, trout , salmon. It was all so good! Highly recommended.

Recently celebrated my and hubby's birthday with friends for dinner (we're more than 10) as I heard good feedback about this restaurant but was disappointed. The taste of the food wasn't that great and our orders didn't arrive all at the same time, of which they compensated by not charging us the house wine (which was mentioned to be free... More

Had heard a lot of good things about the fish factory so was looking forward to eating here. The front of the restaurant was beautiful, well lit and gave a very good impression. Our party was shown through to the rear of the restaurant where the lighting was so poor that we had difficulty reading our menus. This set the... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal last night. The fish menu's extensive & superbly cooked. We had a wide array from sardines, chowder, smoked salmon, Thai fish rolls, sea bass, catfish curry, mussels & bouillabaisse. All flavoursome and perfect. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. I can honestly say the best I've had in ages.

Very nice and tasty fish and chip restaurant. I visited here 3 years ago with friends and seem to recall it serving a more upmarket menu. I had kedgeree, one friend had lobster and at least one had a fish broth/stew. This time around, even though i thought i was ordering non-battered fish, i ended up with battered fish. Don't... More

One of the places we always eat in if in Worthing, staff are very good and the food is fantastic. We had the Halibut and it never disappoints. It's worth mentioning that you can get meat dishes as well, which is a good plus if one in your group do not like fish. There is also a Fish Factory in... More

It was really good, but had to wait for our food. The food was good when it finally came. If you have hours to sit and visit it's OK, wine was good.

Just had another great meal here with friends. The menu is varied and extensive plus interesting specials of the day. A good plus is the range of local fresh fish that can be had. We were amazed at how busy the restaurant was on a Wednesday evening which meant that we had some waiting to do before our meal arrived... More
