After a bracing coastal walk, locals recommended we try "Trawlers"in our search for fish 'n chips - and we weren't disappointed ! The most prominent table inside the restaurant part ( there's a take-away outlet connected via the kitchen ) was "reserved"....clearly a good sign, and although we easily found an early table, Trawlers filled up considerably by the time...

Always fresh fish, beautifully prepared and served. Lots of alternative food. Best to book in advance. Have been dining here since 2003.

A well established local fish and chip shop, the take away is excellent usually cooked fresh while you wait. We have used the restaurant but I would have to agree with a previous review that it does not have a good atmosphere.

A huge selection of food for a fish and chip shop but they must cook eerything in the same oil as everything tastes of fish, not very exciting

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.

(without Chips) But ask for a larger portion of mashy-peas instead and some lemon.... never been charged for the lemon !!! Bravo !?! I have been going to this... More
