This place was astonishing, fresh and polite.

It was four of us, two couples. We traveled to Brighton to show the city to our friends - it was their first trip to UK.
We started ordering, choosing various fish - and the waitress noted that it would actually be cheaper for four of us to try the platter (I forgot the name - it's the bottom choice in the fish part of the menu). And she was right - it was 4 different fish, plus large chips at a cheaper price! We were offered variety in terms of how we want the fish cooked, we opted for grill.

The fish was fresh and tasteful, all 4 options. Chips were nice, not soggy - just perfect.
The chef even brought us a litte taster of 4 pieces of battered fish, completely free of charge. And it was as good as the grill option.

Thank you guys for the nice meal!
I highly advise to visit this place, really!

Always good, and a friendly welcome. There aren't better fish and chips anywhere in Brighton. They provide a range of fish, and cod free Wednesdays to raise awareness of ocean plunder.

Travel and adventure will often require heading away from the crowds, off the beaten track and along where the locals who know go. In Brighton, if you are seeking traditional fish n chips or a super seafood platter with champagne this is the place!

It's always amazed me how poor Brighton is for fish and chips given it's a seaside town. However, Bardsley's makes it look easy. Proper fish and chips with excellent spanking fresh fish and properly cut chips. If dining in you also have some good booze choices including the never bettered local Harveys ales. This fish and chip shop is so good it could almost give a northern chippy a run for it's money..... almost.

Roy and his family are delicious. I'd like to dip them in batter and deep-fry them, that is how delicious they are. you are made welcome here even if you're just stopping ofr a takeaway. The fish is fresh and local and they pioneered No Cod Wednesdays because they care about the environment - we all should. Nothign worhty about it. You can have fish grilled or fried or steamed. They celebrate their ingreidents but not ina smug way. They also serve veuve cliquot, if you want it, or mugs of hot steaming sweet tea.

Eating here and seeing Roy & co is always an absolute pleasure. A midweek salvation.
