On a recent visit to the fish factory to celebrate a friends birthday we had a large party of us.A very warm welcome and drinks served before everyone arrived. The menu is unfussy straight to the point. We had lots of time to chat and settle down before we ordered. I had flamed tiger prawns with sweet chilli sauce and... More

I visited the Fish Factory on East Street, Littlehampton for early 'Mothers Day' lunch with my wife and my mother. Making a phone reservation was excellent no problem, Good bar service but then it all went down hill when the food finally arrived (30 mins) and the restaurant was empty! Three meals ordered but two were not of a good... More

We came here because of the good reviews. The service was very friendly but a little slow. The portions were generous and the food was OK but not exciting, except the chocolate pudding which was fantastic!

We had a lovely evening here, my sister-in-law and I. As it was a birthday treat, and we both like fish and chips, what better place to spend an evening. We reserved our table the day before, very popular so I do recommend this. We arrived early but no problem and picked a nice table for 2, lovely solid oak... More

Had an evening here with friends. It is good to have the option if you want your fish grilled, battered, steamed or matzo. Good selection of fish dishes but also offers meat and vegetarian dishes. Warning the portions are large so if you have a sweet tooth and enjoy a dessert you may want to avoid the starters.

The food here is always fresh and the portions are generous. There are also daily specials which are always worth trying. It is also worth noting that whenever I have been here the staff are really friendly and accommodating (but not in your face!). I will certainly go here again!
