Stopped for a takeaway to have on our last night of camping near Tavistock. Extremely disappointed, especially given the positive reviews on here. The chips in particular were very poor - overcooked and very dark (maybe cooked in old oil?) - to the extent that...More

Ok, I think everyone likes chips now and again and often get disappointed after the purchase. NOT these. We've never used this venue before as live in Torquay so a bit far to go back for more. These are seriously the best chips

The best FishinChip shop ever. Small and friendly with personable staff it provides the best fish & chips I've ever had the pleasue to eat; the fat they use must be very special and its fried to perfection

Very generous portions, good specials and kids meals, friendly staff, quick service and price. The fish was very good , batter was perfect no oil inside the batter and the fish/batter was not soggy. I will definitely visit again, especially to eat in.

Stopped here for some sausage and chips. Tasty sausage, but soggy batter. Chips were ok, but nothing special. Great to have it wrapped in newspaper, and not in a box. Extremely friendly guy that was serving and cooking.

We visited TJ's on 27th October, the fish was fresh and well cooked with just the right amount of batter. The portion for a medium size cod and chips was generous but this was reflected in the amount meal cost. Staff were friendly, but thought...More

Having decided to eat in rather than taking fish n chips home, we were slightly disappointed to find that only the extra large cod was freshly cooked, with the smaller pieces of fish being served from the hot box. The freshly cooked fish turned out...More
