This place could be great if it wasn't for the rude staff. All the ladies here have very bad attitudes and it appears that it's almost too much trouble for them to serve! Staff also can't wait to get out and go to the pub!! Very bad service and they really don't deserve their shop. It's a shame because generally... More

Without a doubt the very best chippie in Torquay - lovely battered cod and beautifully crispy chips - a lunchtime treat.

I'm home from Oz and fancied a chip butty. I walked up to tesco and purchased Lurpak and some fresh white rolls in preparation for a delicious chip butty. Paul's Plaice was closed! On a Saturday night! Soooo disappointed- I have heard good things. Luckily my brother was on his way home and found another chippy.
