If you can’t even be bothered to peel and cut your own chips then don’t own a chip shop. Especially on a well known Eastbourne landmark. We will be steering well clear and going to Dolphin fish bar from now on.

Sorry but this should be a great place right on the pier, but the chips were awful, dry as a bone even with vinegar & sauce. The fish was freshly cooked so a little better. The shop is tired & not very clean. Such a...More

Had a nice portion of chips at this place. Was not at all greasy. The lady who served us was chatty and polite. It was a gorgeous summers day so we sat on the beach and enjoyed them lots. Great price.

The pier recently won an award for the Best Building but this place let's it down. We had fish and chips which we thought were just a little overpriced especially as the fish was rather small. The real downside, though, was the toilet. Dirty, smelly...More

Grey fish, floury soggy batter, greasy chips with hard centres. How can you get it so wrong? Maybe a case of another coach party tomorrow. Never again which is a shame because it is in an ideal position.

A cold windy day, the rain threatening, what could be better than chips? Proper chips. Fresh cooked and served with a smile. In fact the service seasoned the chips better than salt and vinegar. Just perfect. And as you know I don't often give 5...More
