If you like fish then you must visit! It's a decent restaurant for Littlehampton

The fish is, as you would expect, excellent. Very tasty and highly recommended. The service was nice and the prices about spot on. Nice atmosphere too, we visit often.

Very pleased with our "birthday" lunch celebrated with four friends earlier this week. Have eaten here before and found it good. But on this occasion, I feel praise should be given as the staff I think went out of their way to provide a very pleasant atmosphere with really good unobtrusive service. In particular we had dropped in OUR OWN... More

Popped in for a meal with my husband. He had the steak & kidney pudding which he thoroughly enjoyed, and I the (giant) fishcakes!! What I love here is that you can choose from fries, potatoes or rice & veg or salad. I love the pilaff rice they serve! Great service as usual. This group of 3 restaurants (Fish Factory... More

We go here a lot. The food is delicious, staff are friendly and helpful and its good value. We either have cod and chips or skate. Both are fresh and tasty. Really tasty. The children's menu is really good and the food is just as high standard as the adults (butchers sausages, chicken broast). Would definitely recommend.

We decided to try something different for a very late Sunday lunch. Normally the local reliable pub nr Chichester. LA always puts an edgy smile on my face, however the Fish Factory didn't dissapoint. A bit edgy at first as service came without a big smile, but once warmed up our waitress began to relax and smile. Excellent food and... More

Went here on a Saturday night with family. Arrived about 8.30 and was surprised how quiet the restaurant was. Shown to our table and drinks orders taken straight away. The starters and mains were lovely I'm not a massive fish lover but really enjoyed my cod and chips with mushy peas. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the prices... More

Having dined in the Fish Factory and taken many friends and relatives to experience the Fish Factory food - all of whom would recommend it to their friends - I would thoroughly recommend it to others. The food is cooked well and there are choices in how you would like your fish cooked e.g. grilled, fried in batter or matzo,... More
