We have eaten here several times. The food is of a very high quality and dishes we have enjoyed have included tempura prawns, hake, crab, lobster, spatchcock chicken. Always cooked brilliantly & delicious! And do leave room for the amazing puddings. We highly recommend this place.

We visited 47 Mussel Row in Littlehampton for the first time today. We had a great lunch and will certainly be returning in the future. It's an independent family run business with high standards. The food was excellent. I had the local fish, today it was plaice, accompanied by new potatoes and a selection of freshly cooked vegetables. My wife... More

In a street of fish and chip shops and ice-cream parlours on the Arun quay, this stands out for quality food. With a busy seaside ambience, and an eclectic clientele we were served a fish platter which was one of the best balanced and interesting we have tasted; the squid rings melted in the mouth. This chef really knows his... More

Wonderful dinner for our anniversary. I ordered a fish platter which was delicious as did my husband as a starter. I then ordered the dressed crab and my husband the mussels which was scrumptious. Then I finished with the Eton mess. The service was excellent and the food great quality.

We popped along to 47 Mussel Row for an impromptu lunch and had the fish of the day from the lunch time set menu. The plaice which we both had was very fresh and beautifully cooked as were the potatoes and the vegetables. Along with a couple of soft drinks it was a very reasonably priced lunch. The evening menu... More

Went for lunch in July and only got to the entrance and read the menu. Difficult to read due to the seagull poo over the glass and on the doorstep. Did not enter as I had doubts to the cleanliness inside. First impressions are important

I visited 47 mussel row with my girlfriend for a surprise birthday dinner. The food was amazing, we had the prawns for starters, I had the mussels and chips for main and she had the deep fried crab (last one available so we had to snap it up quick). The service was perfect with attentive and helpful waiters. Overall a... More

We came across this nice looking place strolling down the Arun Riverside. The name suggested mussels, and we love mussels. Three of had mussels cooked in wine with a delicious drop of cream. Our boy had a selection of seafood on a slate platter which, to our surprise, he enjoyed very much because normally he's quite a fussy eater when... More

"Custmers of a Litlehamptn restaurant have helped it t serve up a nominaton for a best seafood establishment in the south award." - Littlehampton Gazette
