Summary

“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”).

Summary

“Despite being firmly on the tourist trail”, this “old-style chippy, with decent sea views” is “a classic”. Perhaps “it’s better away from the peak of summer when the charmingly brusque staff aren’t run ragged”, but the place is “always reliable” for “great chips and well-battered fish, all very fresh, plus a good deal of other dishes”.
