Constantly Good Quality

Consistently good quality food. Generous servings and attentive staff. The restaurant could do with a bit of a makeover though.

We've been several times and it's been consistently good with friendly, quick service. Despite not booking we've always found a table at lunchtime, though I can imagine it being necessary to book on busier evenings. The fish and chips has always been excellent, generous, perfectly cooked servings. We've also tried the roasts (better, and better value, than many pubs offer)... More

Fish cooked to perfection with wine at a reasonable price. Meat option available. Easy walking distance of Camelot House and the town centre.

We've been eating here since the day after it opened. That's when Worthing didn't have any good eat in Fish restaurants- not since the old Silverthornes shut anyway. Unfortunately they got very popular and as we tend to decide to eat out an hour before,we could never get a table. Recently we've started eating here again and I'd forgotten how... More

Found this great little restaurant. I had a fantastic gluten free meal, gluten free beer batter haddock and crispy chunky chips. The rest of the family had fantastic meals too, one had the seafood pasta which was lovely and full of a mixture of fish, mussels, baby octopus,calamari and prawns. Everything was reasonably priced and we had great service from... More

This restaurant is a great find. The food is good quality, the service really good and it is always busy so book beforehand, which makes for a good atmosphere.

OK, I know I am a very generous reviewer because I really like these places, and it's not as good as Fishy Fishy in Brighton, which is the best fish restaurant I've been to by far (but it's a few years since I was there so haven't reviewed it) but The Fish Factory is really excellent - a really nice...

There is something about this place (just like it's sister restaurant 'Food') that is different from the rest. Reasonably priced, excellent service, very good food. They have the occasional problem but they sort it and, as long as you speak to the staff in the proper manner (boy do you hear some awful moaners in restaurants) they respond and deal... More

Fantastic food as always but so pleased to see that the chips were more crispy this time! Great gluten-free options and exemplary service.
