Great fish and chips. There is a separate gluten free menu. They can make any version of fish you could want - the gluten free batter is very good! Also the fish is all caught locally. (The factory name is a little mis-leading!).

First visit here in a couple of years and it is still friendly with a nice atmosphere, but there has been a noticeable change in the menu. In the past it did very good and varied fish and chips, but now there is a great...More

We visited The Fish Factory which is a nice friendly restaurant in Worthing. Parking is not easy on Saturday but there is a car park within reasonable distance. We had a variety of starters, grilled haloumi cheese, sardines, scallops and whitebait. 2 of us shared...More

An unpretentious but attractive and popular restaurant specialising in good quality, well prepared fish meals in Worthing. You get the feeling they know what they're doing - they've been doing it for quite some time. Friendly and efficient service which is reasonably priced. If you're...More

This excellent restaurant has a separate extensive gluten-free menu. The food is always piping hot, generous portions and very tasty. Despite being a fish restaurant there are several meat dishes too. Staff are always helpful and attentive.

The main problem here is that they are always in a rush to get you in and out so it is not possible to enjoy a relaxing meal. Food quality and choices are good but spoiled by atmosphere and decor.

We booked for a Friday night and were seated straight away. The restaurant was busy and full of local people. Although this is a fish restaurant there are other dishes available. I had the standard Haddock and my wife had the Mussels which were stunning....More
