Met up with some friends, decided fish and chips would be nice. We were not disappointed, really enjoyable, over sized, tasty, freshly cooked, a meal to remember for quite sometime.

Great fish and chips. I asked for a small portion and I was allowed to order the kids meal. It was great - perfect size and yummy. Great service, nice staff, tasty food. We went for lunch and there was no problem getting a table.

First time for me! Such a large Menu selection. Fish & Chips marvelous and a good selection of fine wines. On the outskirts of Brighton, but well worth the Visit.

As the name suggests this converted lloyds bank is a great venue and has a superb eat in restaurant. At first sight it seems cheap and cheerful with its basic wooden tables and chairs. Looks can be deceptive. The waitresses are really good, the food...More

Not the cheapest in Brighton ( medium cod and chips £ 10.50 large 11.95 )but well worth it. Not the closest to the centre but worth the walk on Western Road. Bang on quality fish fried and reasonably drained of oil. Also a good selection...More
