I was impressed with the fish, the service and value in this restaurant. They specialise in all types of fish dishes from fish fingers to lobster. The set lunch is £7.00 and the wine list is very good.

Four of us had lunch here to celebrate a special birthday. Everything was excellent. The service was good, the food beautifully served and we all had different choices. We all had fish but there were opportunities to have meat on the menu. The Mussels were lovely, the Wellington was exceptional, the Halibut and the Red Snapper were perfect. We would... More

4 of us visited last night for the first time. Plenty of free parking nearby after 6pm. Large menu of mainly fish, but also a few meat choices for those not keen on fish. Staff are all friendly and attentive, and prices not bad at all. The starters were all served after about 15 mins. All well presented and delicious.... More

We were staying in Littlehampton and just happened upon the Fish Factory. The food was superb, beautifully cooked and presented and very reasonably priced, so we ate there every night of our 3 night stay! It is quite noisy, because of hard floors and contemporary interior, but this actually added to the atmosphere. First evening we found the wooden chairs... More

Glad we visited. Lively spot, well laid out. Interesting menu with plenty of choice and friendly,m efficient staff to guide you. Grilled sardines were excellent as was halibut and my wife's Dover sole. We shared a desert, thankfully as one portion was more than enough for two. Wine reasonably priced and served at proper temperature. Will return when next in... More

Fish Wellington was excellent. Harbour Fish Pie was another excellent choice. The rest of the party had main dishes that were better than good. There was a dietary allergens menu was available but please double check with the staff. Fortunately we asked, a pudding which was listed as dairy free upon double checking had a sauce which was made with... More

Like this restaurant as it has more space than the Worthing venue although have not been to that one for some time. We were well looked after by friendly staff.

Very tasty seafood and fast service, friendly staff. Plenty of room and good drinks. Mussels were fab and fish cakes were fab. Will return for some plaice! Only thing is the seating is hard wood so uncomfy. I was about to finish the review except now ive been told to reiterate the 'fabness' of the fish cakes, the potato to... More

We were pleased to find this restaurant after a dispiriting look at other places to eat in the town. Large, modern decor and fast friendly service. We wanted a traditional fish and chips and there was a good choice on the sensibly priced menu. Service was particularly good and our food came quickly. Both cod and chips and haddock and... More
