Good fish and chips, I had the cod, chips were nicely cooked and crisp. Only comment I would make is the batter could have done with a little longer in the frier to make sure it was cooked right through.

Best cod and chips on the SE Coast, that's why it's always busy. Take away and eat in. We always pay a visit when in Hastings with the caravan

Very hot day but I did the traditional thing and ordered fish and chips. I sat outside and drank tea (much too weak) and had to ask for salt and vinegar to be brought to the table. I was able to park in the cul de sac as I can only walk a little bit due to arthritis.

Having visited Hastings on many occasions we always enjoyed some really tasty fish and chips from the Blue Dolphin. However, this time we were disappointed with the quality and the service. Time to improve with so much competition around or lose regular customers.
