The whole experience didn't really hit those dizzy heights again. As it was firework night in LA there were lots of family groups dining which is always good to see however mixing adult only groups with little ones is always tricky especially when the Kids are loud! The waitresses smiled a lot but it was quite perfunctory and the food... More

I booked the Fish Factory for a family reunion of 15 cousins and partners aged 50-60 on a busy Saturday evening in late August 2014. Everything was superb. We had 2 tables in a nicely separated part of the restaurant where we could talk and laugh rather loudly without disturbing the other diners. The service was extremely efficient for quite... More

I don't normally write bad reviews, this is my first, but this was a truly TERRIBLE meal. There are some great little chip shops in Littlehampton and this doesn't compete with any of them. The meagre portion of chips was dry and the fish was basically inedible. I had hake and it looked like something from the bottom of someone's... More

I have visited the Fish Factory in Littlehampton several times, and always the food has been good, at reasonable prices, with plenty of choice - vegetarian, carnivorous, or pescatorial - served cheerfully and quickly. The bar offers a good range of beers and wine, and tap water is available on request. I often have battered haddock and chips, and I... More

My evening in Littlehampton revealed what a tired seaside town this is, like so many of Britain's coastal locales. The Fish Factory certainly looked the most appealing restaurant in town, but still relatively run of the mill. I started with the salmon tricolore, which was underwhelming, the salmon was decidedly average and what it lacked in quality was not matched... More

We have eaten here on several occasions. The fish is always excellent, very fresh and very good value indeed. Service is prompt and friendly. There are also decent beer and wines at reasonable prices. If you like fish, you must go here!

We stayed in Littlehampton for a week and used TRIPADVISOR beforehand to look for food venues. The Fish Factory proved to be the best restaurant by far. It is a lovely restaurant, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Happy and helpful staff who were pleased to see you. The menu is a treat, even if you don't want fish. The MEZE is... More
