We've using Maddys for take away fish and chips for several years and again last night. The fish and chips is still excellent with crispy batter on the fish and well cooked chips, We've tried others but always go back to Maddys for consistent good quality.

Having had chips from Maddy’s over 15 years ago, they are still as good as I remember. If you’re in Ilfracombe, then it’s the best chippy in town. I couldn’t resist as cone of piping hot FRESH Maddy’s chips on a cold February day.
