if out in town bankers have a eat in section which is clean and pleasant and the service is fine. The food is very good quality and good value but if on a budget get take away instead which is a real winner. They have a separate take away but I think the take away from the original is best

The fish was excellent. We shared a large cod and chips and were full so portions are decent. The chips were not the kind of chips I usually like. I think the soggyer the better really and these were not but they were very tasty. My favourite thing was the cod though. Beautiful tasting fish and non overpowering batter. Onion... More

"Sold" to me by a local friend as THE place to go in Brighton for "proper fish n chips" my expectations were high. The location is indeed excellent, a beautiful old house, and the food pretty much hit the spot [except for the sad-looking single pickled onion slammed down in front of me long before any other dishes arrived]. However... More

This is the place I am always drawn to for consistently excellent fish and chips in Brighton. Previously I have just done a takeaway, but today, sans wife, I went for the large cod and chips! It was very tasty fish, perfectly cooked with an even batter coating. Chips were just right. Supper was cancelled as it was a substantial... More

I am always happy when we eat fish and chips here. The fish is so fresh and the chips just the way I like them.

I am not a huge fish-and-chip eater, but have been here a handful of times over the years as the haddock and chips is always good and I like the spaciousness and airiness of the main part of the restaurant with its high ceiling. The portions are huge. I noted there is also swordfish on the menu which is something... More

Spent day by the seaside, lapping up the sun. In the Evening we stumbled across Bankers, the fish was excellent and the chips were amongst the best I have tasted. The wait was reasonable considering both take away and restaurant were rammed! Would definitely recommend.

Undercooked, greasy slow service and felt ill even after eating just a few. Terrible. In such a competitive market I struggle to see how you could get it so wrong...

I love this place. Whenever I visit Brighton and Hove I always have to make sure I go here for dinner at least once! My favourite is sausage and chips, with bread and butter. The chips are always great, not soggy but nice and crisp. Clean restaurant, friendly staff and reasonable prices. What's not to like? Highly recommended.
