About The Fishmarket Newhaven
Proper Seafood Restaurant located in the heart of Newhaven Harbour.
Great fish and chips...keep it simple and it's tremendous value for money!!
Our favourite chippy by far! We always book for a sit down meal so we can relax and really appreciate the quality of the food.
Great fish and chips, very tasty, thanks
Brilliant good and great value for money. Best fish & chips ever.
Fantastic food and service. Great to get a GF option too!! Will be back.
Booking via website was absolutely fine, unfortunately our first impression on arrival at the restaurant was not a good one. Our booking was for 1.45pm for 4 people. We arrived at 1.35pm gave our name and was immediately told our table was not ready and we would have to wait an hour. I showed them my email confirmation of the booking and got a shoulder shrug, I don’t know how that has happened, we have no tables. Your booking is for 7 people? No, it is for 4 people. Ah ok yes your table is ready. Interestingly the table for 7 people that was booked for an hour later was free the entire time we were there until that party arrived. The waitress who served us was not either of the 2 who had given us such a warm welcome and she was extremely pleasant, helpful and professional. The food was ok, not sure it’s outstanding compared to others fish restaurants but the scampi was huge and very tasty. My son wanted to come here for his birthday lunch. It wasn’t as special as I’d have liked it to be.
Fantastic all round!
Unfortunately the fish was greasy and chips were soggy. Squid starter was tough. Second time visiting, first visit was extremely busy so thought we’d give the Fishmarket a second chance. It was quiet yesterday and there was no improvement. Some tables are positioned right next to each other. The staff seated another couple next to us and it was like we were part of a group it’s so close. Unfortunately we will not be back.
The best fish and chips
Best fish and chips in town
Fish was poked to perfection and the chips were brilliant. Lots of fat ones and lots of little crispy ones, just the way I like them. I will definitely be back.
Pleasant staff and the food was lovely
Apart from a slight problem with an incorrect gin and tonic( it took a while to rectify) everything was very good indeed. Our guests ( 1 from Mexico) loved it.
Nice place, smaller than thought. Waiting staff could smile more! Food good. Oysters overpriced. Couldn’t believe we were charged £5 each for a 99 cone. Way over priced!
Food and service was excellent but feel some of the tables are a bit close together.
Easily the best fish in the City!
Excellent quality and service
I was disappointed with my starter of ceaser salad and felt it was very overpriced for what it was,not much sauce or parmesan and lettuce was slightly brown on ends and extremely cold (I have sensitive teeth).My husband had fish stew which said it came with shellfish which there was none but it was tasty.Desert of plum crumble and ice cream was actually my most enjoyable course.Most of the food was tasty but very overpriced.Service was also quite slow.I had came because I saw the programme with Tom Kerridge and Fred which showed the fishmarket but I was disappointed and expected a bit more.
Terrible. Don't bother.
Amazing food. Excellent service.
Enjoyable family meal. Generous portions of very nice food.
Tiny criticism, being a takeaway as well as a restaurant, the door needs to be able to open and close all the time, so we noticed an occasional but considerable draught. Didn’t spoil an excellent meal though. We will DEFINITELY come back.
Outstanding quality of food and good service and atmosphere - the TV reviews were correct & I can see why people were queuing for the take away food! The smoked salmon & cider jelly starter was incredible - the best smoked salmon I'd had anywhere in the world & worth the 90 minute drive on it's own... two jars or a larger portion as a main/entree would have been perfect. The crab cakes were not the best, slightly over cooked and lacking much crab taste and dry. The chips were perfect and almost "melt in the mouth". Overall a good way to celebrate my birthday even with the disappointment of my crab cakes.
Had the Haddock and chips they were the best, I don’t usually like chips but the were excellent
