Good fresh fish on the south coast

Can anyone recommend a good place for fresh fish and chips in either Brighton or Southampton, want to visit the seaside while it's hot and get some nice traditional fish and chips while there.

  1. A bit further west than Southampton but I have friends who really rate here

    1. I asked the same question about Brighton on another board and was told that the chippy on the pier is best bet. It was shut on the day I was there and I ended up at a vile place on the front.

      1. I suggest giving Brighton a miss - it will be hideously packed, and the beach is rubbish, and going to Ramsgate instead for fish and chips at Eddie Gilberts. Best I've had for a long time.
