“Amazing fish and chips” of the old-school variety make this traditional seafront operation “a bit of an anachronism” in trendy contemporary Brighton – “but all the better for it”. There’s an “outstanding range of fresh fish and seafood”, all at “good-value” prices – no wonder it’s “always busy”.

With its “basic, unpretentious interior and bustle”, this “traditional chippie in a seafront setting” serves “still probably the best fish ’n’ chips in town” of the conventional, un-gastro variety. Both hot and cold seafood come on “exceptionally large platters”, and “it’s the perfect place for a Sunday lunch on a stormy day looking out over the Channel”.

“The freshest of fish and shellfish” are “served without fuss by friendly staff” in “the heartiest of portions” at this 1930s chippie on the seafront: to many “Brighton’s best fish ’n’ chips by far” (of the “classic” variety, “but not just cod and haddock: lobster, skate, oysters… you name it”).

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Not as good as we had anticipated, a fairly basic setting and certainly no frills perhaps we were expecting a parade of fresh fish and sea food but it all seemed rather ordinary. They were busy so I expect they think it was acceptable, but not to us. "
