Fish and chips is a British classic, and what better place could there possibly be to enjoy it than by the glorious seaside? Chippies, pubs and beach front cafes across Brighton have fish and chips on their menus, with trendy chefs adding a touch of modern flair to this national dish, but also plenty of options if you want a no-fuss-no-frills kinda supper.
Having grown up in Brighton, I've sampled my fair share of the city's chippies. And with so many to choose from, you gotta get it right. To save you from floppy batter and sloppy chips, or from paying an extortionate tourist premium, these are my top picks for the best fish and chips in the city. You can follow that delicious waft of vinegar knowing you're in safe hands — just watch out for the seagulls.
