There's a lot of local rivalry between this place and Freds down the road but I've always though Osca wins out. The food is good, quintessential english seaside fish and chips! Not too pricey and does a brilliant portion of chips to take away. Traditional seaside cuisine right by the river.

Chips are always cooked to perfection, good staff, plus it's eat in. Always come here, best chips in town!

It is brilliant, tasty food, great service and a great British fish and chip shop. My scampi was well cooked and not just a lump of breadcrumbs with bugger all in the middle, good size of meat in it and crispy outside, excellent chips, nice side salad and plenty of condiments.

Visited Oscars today with my vegan brother. I had take away scampi and chips and he had vegan nuggets and chips. Absolutely delicious. Clean shop and nice friendly service. Will make the effort to drive to Littlehampton again.

We had tried Oscas many years ago but had found it so similar to our regular Freds that it didn't warrant changing from what we then knew and loved. However, times and attitudes change, quality varies dramatically and to be honest, these days, Freds really doesn't have a lot going for it other than the popular sea wall - which... More

Fred's has always been our chippy of choice despite bad customer service and long queues. But no more. So many people have said Oscars is better and now we've had their dinner we will never be going back to Freds. The staff here were happy and kind. The food great. And no queues. How could we have been so blind... More

Popped in for the first time one Friday about 2:30. Chose the good value meal deal for £8.50. Service was friendly and efficient. Fish was better than id had for a long time and chips were even better. Batter was light and not oily. Finished off with traditional pudding and mug of decent hot coffee all included in the price....

Best fish & chips in Littlehampton. Great to either eat in or take away, views out to the river lovely and best mug of tea in miles

Had take-away fish and chips but really wasn't up to the standards you expect from a seaside town. Fish was over-battered and broke off in chunks. Chips were old and hard to eat or chew. Won't be returning for any more. Such a shame.
