We were invited for a family birthday celebration but very nearly drove home since the Fish Factory is practically impossible to see from the road after dark. There is no nearby parking - the road is limited by taxi ranks on both side of the road. Once inside we found the decor to be unprepossessing and not very welcoming. However... More

This is frequently our 'go to' for lunch. They do a 'lunch menu' at a reduced price which is very good value and delicious, especially the mussels and the seafood risotto. Main menu is delicious too.

We came a couple of days after Xmas as a family member recommended it and it was our treat. Booked a table with no problem and they were helpful when I needed to change the time. The restaurant is a little cold in decor (bright white throughout) but I guess that's a personal taste thing. Playing George Michael on repeat... More

Second visit to the Fish Factory (Littlehampton) and I wish I could eat here every week. The specials board wasn't accurate; it's not that they don't have specials, but they don't match the board. We (three of us, sunday lunch for a birthday treat) had different items and they were all excellent. The fish was cooked to perfection. The restaurant... More

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
