• Bardsley's


22-23a Baker Street


If Bankers is the young upstart in the world of Brighton chippies, Bardsley’s is the old stager – which seems appropriate when it’s famous for its room devoted to Brighton-born comic Max Miller, chocker with  ‘Cheekie Chappie’ memorabilia. This family business was founded down by the seafront in 1926; these days it’s located well inland off London Road, but its fish offering is spankingly fresh and surprisingly varied for a humble fish and chip shop. Unsurprisingly its prices are top-end – £7.20 for a small haddock and chips – but so is the quality of its tender fries and perfectly cooked batter. Their success is evident with a clutch of national awards for food and service and expansion into a neighbouring property, which houses thar Miller collection.
