We come often to this place but for the past few months it appears that management has given charge to employee teenagers during week ends and I need to confess the experience is going down hill. They should hire a more senior or experienced manager to run the place of the owners are not around.

This restaurant has been in Seaford since the 1960s always popular for a take away or a sit down meal. It doesn't have a lot of atmosphere but is always fairly full

Brilliant. If you can wait, try the grilled fish (any) with herbs. Better for you and tastier than traditional batter.

Always a good meal hear, nice atmosphere and friendly service sometimes a little slow. Food is of good quality and cooked fresh, be warned always book your table especially on Fridays or you may not get a table as they are very popular, best fish and chips in Seaford

Might not look much from the outside but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Service was also quick and pleasant. I would highly recommend.

Busy Restaurant-cafe in the town centre serving take-always and eat-in. Have to say that this is the best fish and chips I have had in a long time. Large,flakey cod in a crisp batter and traditional chips. There is a liquor licence and a wide range of drinks. I found the service excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Pity... More

A lovely traditional fish and chip restaurant with Seventies styling which only adds to the charm. One of the very best places in East Sussex to eat traditional fish and chips with everything freshly cooked to order, great service and good value too.
