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.

Visited Brighton for a couple of days & came upon Bankers. Wonderful fish & the best chips I've ever tasted. Staff very friendly, prices reasonable, would definitely go back when visiting the area again.

Restored my faith in UK after bad week. You have to wait 10 min or so but well worth it for freshly cooked. Good service and Lahr cod and Chis great value piping hot and spot on. Had take away nicely boxed and big bag to carry.

Recently went here after looking at recent reviews and the food was good. There was a longish que out the takeaway room so was a bit sceptical in case food was cold but wasn't disappointed. The fish and chips came in a cardboard box with is much easier to eat out of when we walked down to the beach. Next... More

Classic fish and chips done well in a proper traditional English chippy setting. Bankers has the best of both worlds - If you're a tourist and want the full supper experience you can make the most of the restaurant. Or if just want to grab a bag of chips on the way home there's a takeaway entrance. Only 4/5 as... More
