Having been many times a few years ago, we thought we'd go back as we love fish and its always been great. The restaurant was cold, we did ask if they could turn the heating up, it was on we were told (very low). The starters were lovely but the mains the Chips were dripping fat, not crunchy like they...

Went to the Fish Factory in Littlehampton last weekend. As the name suggests the main offering is seafood, but as it was Sunday lunchtime we went for the Sunday Roast Beef. Oh dear. oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! Three slices of pre-cooked beef in a glutinous gravy, with overcooked (dry) potatoes and veg - cost in excess of £10... More

I have been many a time to their sister restaurant in Worthing and always been pleased with the food there. Here is no different; good honest food - mainly fish dishes - well done, nicely presented and reasonably priced. The slight advantage here is that it wasn't quite so busy here when my daughter and I visited one Tuesday evening... More

First visit last night, although we've been quite a few times to the Worthing Fish Factory & love Food also in Worthing (the posh restaurant of the group) so had very high expectations. Love the decor of this one, very spacious and a warm welcome, albeit on a quiet Monday in January - 6 tables occupied. Both had starters: Pate... More

I had first visited the Fish Factory in Worthing some years ago but this was my first time in Littlehampton - well worth a visit. In fact, I thought the ambience was better in Littlehampton, probably because the restaurant is smaller and more open plan. There were ten of us for lunch and full credit goes to the kitchen for...

We had a very nice dinner, the staff was attentive and polite, food was good at quite reasonable prices. The restaurant is roomy, with big windows on the street, so you can sit without rubbing shoulders with other people and just gaze in the window, which I like ;).

Nice surroundings, friendly staff, good food and prompt service, fairly priced well worth a visit, my only criticism is that the menu is limited but I overheard a lady ordering trout which wasn't on the menu so just ask !
