Substantial portions and overall good value for money, with pleasant staff making the whole experience worthwhile. Would have no hesitation in recommending Bankers to anyone and will return here on our next visit to Brighton.

Very good traditional fish and chips. Both take away or eat in. Family friendly, simple but nice and with a good service.

We were looking forward to our visit having read some reviews. How disappointed we were. Meal took a while to arrive but not a problem as we imagined the fish was being cooked to order. And when it arrived the fish was fresh and hot. However the fish was overcooked, much too much batter, very little fish, the batter so... More

I've been coming here for eat-in cod and chips for over a year. The quality of the food is consistently excellent and the service always friendly.

As a family we are partial to some good Fish 'n' Chips and we have an excellent chippie where we live which takes some beating and so when I say the traditional Fish & Chips at Bankers were 'excellent' they really were.

Local established fish n chip shop , take away is good as just that , does have a restaurant as well which is sadly dated. Atmosphere and decor feels like you're in a waiting room at the doctors or dentist . The food is ok although the salad accompanying mine was very very poor , the fish and chips are... More

Went to Bankers before getting the train back home, large fish & chips as not much more than medium. Went for a sit down rather than takeaway & the waiter brought up Moby Dick with 2lb of chips, peas & tartare sauce (glad he didn't hear me ask for bread, no room to fit it)....chips were excellent as was fish...

Second visit to Bankers and happy to report it's still top notch. I'll not comment on service or anything else. Let the cod speak for itself.

We did some online research on where to find the best Fish & Chips in Brighton, and we were not dissapointed. Fish was great, and quantity was overwhelming as well. Would definately recommend eating there.

As always, a great seafood meal was had by all. I recommend the starter whitebait. All this was after a flight on the new British Airways i360 on Hove seafront.
