Whether it's an open bag to share with the seagulls or a carrier bag to take him these peeps are spot on all year round. Thank you!

It's a cold Friday night in January and the lure of the fish and chip shop is strong. The Blue Dolphin served us freshly cooked chips, good portions of huss and a nice chicken breast. All washed down with a large mug of steaming, strong tea. Nothing fancy - just good value, straightforward food served by a pleasant young man.

Reliably good takeaway chips (i've never eaten in their restaurant). Fast service and good chips, what more can you ask for from a seaside chippy?

I am from London and hard to get a good fish and chips in town. I drive down to Hastings at least once a month to eat here. I have only had takeaway so can not say much about the restaurant it's self. The food is spot on, it is by far the best in Hastings, I have never had... More

We came here for take away today, unfortunately the take away door was locked so we had to go in the restaurant door. The restaurant area appeared very simple, but nice to have the option should you wish to eat in away from the wind. The service was good, although the fact we were at the wrong end of the... More

We sat outside to eat on a glorious November day as there was no room inside. We waited ages for our order to be taken and again for anything to arrive. The food arrived first but with no cutlery. We asked for cutlery but the waiter said we would have to wait as he was busy battling the seagulls which... More

Great take away fish and chips, does exactly what you want. Nothing more to elaborate really but need to type enough words!

The chips were very greasy in flavour. Price was normal. We discovered the hygiene rating after our visit and we were Not surprised given the chips issue.

Have been here so many times over the years and although I prefer other fish and chip shops we thought that we would try them as we were in their vicinity Unfortunately although the chips were a good portion, you could taste the oil on the chips as if the oil hadn't been changed and/or drained well enough Having tried...
