“Been coming for years”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We've been coming to Bankers for about 12 years as we live nearby. Never thought to review them until now. I'm a Northerner so no southern chippy is going to get an excellent from me but Bankers comes close. Friendly service means lots of loyal customers. Consistently good fish and the chips are good too. Some variety so not all cod. And they are great for takeaway as well if you want to enjoy sharing with the seagulls on the beach!

“Best Fish & Chips in Brighton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We use the takeaway almost every Saturday!these are by far the best fish and chip shop in Brighton.
The portion are very generous, you only need 1 portion of chips between 2 people as they are massive! The fish is fresh and the batter crisp.

“Brightons Best Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This has to Brighton`s Best Fish & Chips with out a doubt, forget the tacky fish and chips on Brighton sea front head to Bankers for such lovely Fish & Chips. They are not cheap by any means but what you pay is so worth it, look just go your going to love them.

“Fish, chips and sea front”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

After being recommended Bankers by another restaurant, we thought we'd have Fish & Chips on the sea front. Bankers is 5 minutes walk from the promenade, however it's worth making the detour.

I never eat fish and chips as I can't tolerate greasy food, however the food wasn't greasy, was well cooked and was fantastic fun to sit out and watch the sea with, making it a proper seaside visit.

Thankyou for your comments about your recent visit to Bankers.
We are obviously pleased that other restaurants are recommending us, and that you looked beyond the seafront restaurants to find us.
We pride ourselves on using only the best quality products available, and producing freshly prepared fish and chips.
We agree with you, there is nothing better than enjoying Fish & Chips on the sea-front - a real British Tradition - enjoyed for years, and hopefully for many more years to come :)

“Best chips in Brighton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had tried other chips in other places in Brighton and found them wanting. In local bar Medusa the locals recommended Bankers to us. It was just a short walk from the bar and from our hotel The Kings.
The cod was lovely, the chips were real chips not pseudo ones, the mushy peas were perfect, the curry sauce was thick and tasty. We could not fault the meal.
They will put it all automatically in boxes but if you prefer and ask they will wrap it in paper which we did.
Would go back there again when in Brighton.
