17.30 we arrived at the restaurant , given a lovely greeting and well looked after by Siobhan. Our order was taken and within 5 minutes we were served with these well presented fish / chips. The sauces were delicious and even as the place became really busy , the service was great

Visited friends in Torquay who recommended this establishment. On arrival we were asked if we had booked - this I would now strongly recommend.

The food arrived and was excellent... More

We visited as a party of 9 a dew weeks ago. We were very welcomed and the server soon found out what the children's names were and promptly gave them each a colouring pack and crayons which was great. Orders were then taken and I must say we were steered towards buying the draught beer they recommended. We did not... More

Simply the best ( although Drakes round the corner is decent second) From the time you enter and have your order taken to the time it ( quickly ) arrives it's all very professional.

Pretty good, but could do better. Big serves and excellent cod. But the cops were a bit small (individually, good portion) and although hot could be a bit better cooked. Service from takeaway a bit casual, ladled salt and vinegar on fish, not underneath on chips. But this is being really fussy of course! If you're in the area, give... More

Drove over from Torquay and previous reviews didn't disappoint! Best fish and chips we ever had! Even though we sat on a bench in the rain! Well worth it! A must for classic fish and chips on the seafront!

Cooked to order, be patient as it is worth a little wait to have one of the best Fish & chips anywhere. Ambience is quaint, service very good food excellent. Parking right next door and if you want to eat outside, have a take away and walk to Babacombe Downs to experience a wonderful scenic view.
