This beats the other seafront fish and chip places hands down.

You’d think it would be easy to find fantastic fish and chips in a place like Brighton. There are plenty of options in the city centre, certainly - but if you want something decent, you have to choose carefully. I’d advise you to trot down the pier to the Palm Court, a reassuringly old-fashioned restaurant which manages to get things more or less right.

Food and drink

Traditional, no-frills, chip-shop-style battered cod and chips are what it’s all about here. They’re just as they should be - crisp and golden on the outside, fresh and fluffy in the inside. There’s the normal selection of drinks and extras too.

Ambience

You can eat in the large, conservatory-like dining room if it’s a grotty day, or outside (at plastic tables) if it’s sunny. Just the job.

Service

It's basic, but fine.

Location

Eating on the pier with the seagulls wheeling overhead is a classic English seaside experience, and one to be savoured.

Price advice

You can fill up here for well under £15.
