Nothing fishy about this plaice!

We have been visiting this place for a few years or more now... either as a take away or sit down meal and we have never had any issues at all. I think one of the main things that makes Elliot's stand out, apart from the always wonderful fresh food is their staff (they must be happy in their work... read more

Again we have been here a lot of times now and on the whole it's been a good food experience. Yesterday was a bit hit and miss, my wife had fish pie, it lacked well fish really, and was a little tasteless, I had large fish and chips, well it's not their normal large Cod, and was over cooked, the...

Agree with some of the earlier reviewers who picked up on the 'sometimes it's good sometimes it's not' standards. One day 10 of us had takeaway f&c and all found the fish fresh but consistently lacking enough batter to cover the fish. Unrolling the greaseproof to view mostly white cod with only touches of batter here and there towards either... More

We've tried every single fish & chips restaurant on Hayling Island and this is the best one by far. The reason is simple, they only use fresh ingredients. The fish & chips are not greasy nor are they soggy, especially the batter, it's just really crispy and tasty.

I have used this place when the others in the area are closed. I love large cod but with depth, not like an over battered piece of a4 paper. Chips are ok though.

For Fish n Chip on the South of Hayling Island you can't beat Coastguards for good quality/value food. Open to 9pm most nights prefect for cottage change over days when you arrive and don't want to cook first night

The coastguard was a lucky find as we spent just a couple of nights nearby. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the service impeccable, all at a reasonable price. We would definitely recommend it and visit again.

Homely restaurant attached to a traditional fish and chip shop. Really nice fish with light batter and crispy freshly cooked chips. Friendly service.
