Clean, good food, nicely decorated, friendly

This place looks a bit sterile from the outside. Inside the decor is much more charming. The staff are friendly enough and the food is excellent. Get here at 12 for lunch though as the place fills pretty quickly. Service is with a smile but not personal in any way.

My 90 year old Dad and I have just been to this cafe for both coffee, then lunch. Food and staff were both excellent and so helpful to my elderly father. Thank you

My son and I both had sausage and chips here for lunch. We couldn't have asked for more. Good service followed by a tasty lunch. Not really greasy at all, which is easier said than done with chip shops! Will return when we're back on Hayling Island.

There is always a queue, which is good, but not convinced that the queue is due exceptional chips, more like the system they have to serve customers needs tuning. Clearly the restaurant takes priority over take away customers, but this can be annoying when they run out of chips or fish! However they make the best Fish and Chips on... More

I first visited the Coastguard as a child in about 1980, and have revisited it a few times over the years whenever I'm in the area. My most recent visit was in August 2015, and we found the cod and chips to be as excellent as always. The fish was really fresh and the chips were great, the portions were... More

I never thought they could do Mussy Peas in the south but it was good to be proved wrong. Great food, fish cooked to perfection with some of the best batter I have had in a long time.

Fish and chips here are brilliant here. Worth the 30minute drive. Never fails to but the right spot.

Best fish and chips on Hayling Island. As a regular visitor to this establishment I'm never disappointed with the food and service. The staff are always very friendly and cheerful and the service is superb. The restaurant is adjacent to their take-a-way and the fact that, especially on fine summer's evenings, there is a continuous queue of people snaking out... More
