Popped into the chippy for a light bite :) Only ordered chips but The chips were tasty and crisp. You could tell they're frozen but they're still good!!! Gotta have loads of vinegar!!! :D The curry sauce is good with the chips too. Yum!!! The servers are nice, always friendly and helpful. The interior could be made a bit more... More

Fish and chips on a pier should be a treat, particularly on a very hot sunny day. this was not the case at Chippy on the Pier. What a huge disappointment to find that the fish was battered and frozen and also the chips were frozen. Would definitely not recommend. Not sure where there are fish and chips in Eastbourne...

I don't get how the south fail so often in producing good quality fish and chips. Especially on the coast. The haddock I had today was pretty dry, thin and terrible quality especially for the price. The fish fillet had been shown the bucket of batter rather then dipped in it, the edge of the fish was overcooked and the... More

During our visit to the Pier we decided to have fish and chips as you do at the seaside. My son wanted saveloy but unfortunately they had run out and was told it was what you see or cod. We had 2 x cod and chips which came to £11.00 so not bad value. Tasted great and freshly cooked. Seating... More

I am not a lover of fish and chips, but we were on holiday at Eastbourne and my husband says that's part of your holiday to have fish and chips. I was pleasantly surprised with this shop. I cannot see how some people have given it low marks. The fish and chips were delicious, and that is praise itself from... More

I am aghast at people who leave bad reviews about a bag of fish and chips. This chippy is in a great position for what what it sells. The chips are not the best and the ethnic origin of the fish is unknown. What I had was good but if you want a culinary experience why go to a chippy... More

Absolutely appalling!! Frozen fish and imported chips!! I had to drown my food in salt and vinegar to experience any flavour!!. The service was atrocious, one of the blokes serving was eating chips behind the counter as he went about his business, completely unprofessional!!. Wouldn't serve this rubbish to a dog, if you're in Eastbourne for a day trip or... More
