Teeny and friendly. We had kipper, mackerel and whitebait to share- all so fresh and glorious. Best hot sandwiches on the beach! Lots of choice for eating there or taking home- wish we lived closer! So glad we visited before they shut shop for Christmas.

Whenever we visit Brighton we always stop off at Jack & Linda’s for a crab sandwich and smoked kipper roll. The food is always fresh and tasty and both Jack & Linda are always friendly and welcoming.

No. It's a tiny place in the arches. There are a few stools outside and a low wall by the beach. But great place for a seaside stop when hungry. Fresh, lovely fish.
