The Fish Factory people were so busy but they seated us straight away and gave us menus. The children were also given drawing stuff which kept us entertained. We ordered and the food came very quickly. It was delicious. I had chicken nuggets, they were the best ever! It was so good because the peas were squishy and the chicken... More

On recommendation we had a lunchtime meal at the Fish Factory. The menu was very extensive-mainly fish of course. We both chose Huss and chips. The meal arrived on a very hot plate and was excellent. Beautifully cooked and piping hot. The best fish and chips I have had for a long time

Have always found food excellent as is the service. The downside is the price of meals, which are pretty expensive.

Visited midweek and arrived about 6.30. Were seated quickly and offered drinks from a good selection. The menu is clear with a reasonable amount of choice. My husband had the fish curry which was delicious and I had the fish and chips. The fish was lovely, very fresh and beautifully cooked. My only complaint was that the whole place was... More

We have been going to both the restaurants this one and Worthing for many years but unfortunately the prices are creeping up too much. This weekend we went with friends who like fish so it was an obvious choice especially as they serve skate and old favourite. The starters were ok but shame that they obviously buy in their whitebait... More

Went for first time today and was not disappointed. Food was beautiful and lovely and hot was so nice to have good quality chilli sauce with starter instead of usual sweet chilli sauce from wholesalers. Main just as lovely will definitely be back.

The Fish Factory is a restaurant that popped up in Littlehampton. Two or three years ago I think. It's very friendly. Lots of open space and light. Wooden tables and wooden floors. It's a bit like dining in Switzerland or going to Belgo's in London. They don't wear monks apparel which a shame because that was fun. But you can't... More

We go here when in Littlehampton, and we fancy some fish. The Wild British Halibut cooked in Matzo. It is a meaty white fish and very good it is too. The red snapper skewers are a delight too. It can be a bit on the fresh side when dinning in the winter, depending where you sit, and It would be... More
