We ordered takeaway chips from Maggie's two days in a row and on the third we sat inside. Each time we ordered, they were all very friendly and welcoming. I never knew chips could taste so good. Nice view of the sea and the miniature steam train travels right under the balcony. Will hopefully be back one day soon.

Nice selection of fish, we decided to go for a catch of a day - plaice and traditional cod along with portion of mushy peas- portions were of larger size we expected, the fish was fresh delicately battered, chips were thick and the lady who served us (Kim) delightful. We were served very quickly and could enjoy the view of the sea as we had outside table. We will definitely return there.

Probably one of the best fish and ships around, worth reservation for fresh fish, home made tartar and triple cooked chips on demand

About us

For bookings please telephone the cafe between 11.30am - 3.30pm

If you have a general enquiry please drop us an email and we will respond within 24 hours. MaggiesFishAndChipsHastings@gmail.com

We don't have WiFi in the cafe and sorry, we are not able to take bookings via email.

Here at Maggie's we're in our third decade of serving you hearty portions of the freshest fish, cooked to order, in a warm and welcoming cafe - the same traditional family-friendly approach as when Margaret Banfield first put her name above the door.

We're right on the Fisherman's Beach - so you'll enjoy some spectacular views while you tuck in to our fish, direct from the market below us and our specials are straight off the boats with the morning catch - keeping a carbon footprint of less than 20 miles. You can’t get fresher than that!

Maggie’s is licensed too, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your meal.

We are open six days a week, but it's advisable to call us ahead to reserve your table, and if you've got a special occasion, we welcome parties of up to 40 guests.
