Restaurant description

A Brighton institution since 2001, Bankers serves up award-winning fish and chips with all the trimmings. Housed in an attractive Victorian building, this comfy setting for this classic British dish uses sustainably sourced fish, recycles its used oil into biodiesel, and always offers a warm, seaside welcome.

The celebrated fish and chips on the Bankers menu is cooked in a secret recipe batter, with options like cod, haddock, plaice and swordfish. All the fish can be cooked in breadcrumbs, matzo, or even grilled or poached on request, and there are tempting platters to share as well, with mouthwatering scampi and calamari. Alongside the fish selection, there is spit-roasted chicken, freshly baked pies, and jumbo sausages too. Vegetarian options are also available, as well as special menus just for kids.

Sumptuous desserts at Bankers in Hove are a perfect way to finish up. Traditional treats include treacle or jam sponge puddings, chocolate fudge cake, and banana fritters with ice cream. A selection of international beers are served alongside wines and bubbles, with soft drinks and milkshakes for the kids.

A great example of traditional fish and chips at the seaside, Bankers is a stone's throw from the seafront, and 5 minutes' drive from Brighton Rail Station.

    Have been coming to Bankers for about twenty-five years. The seniors meal is exceptional. Best fish I know of. Portions are just the right size for my husband and I. A huge bonus is being able to have new potatoes instead of chips.
