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!

Sorry I can not answer this question. You can always get in touch with them and ask. As somebody else has said you can always use the Takeaway if you can not take in your dog.
