This place there is always a queue. They take your order and give you a number and almost everything is cooked fresh. You can also eat in but there are not many tables so its advisable to book

Smashing Chippy, eat in or out.. We went for takeaway, and were most impressed with the Quality and service... Also the packaging kept the Fish and Chips really warm.. Well worth a visit..

As this fish and chip shop was just around the corner from our apartment , we stopped off for takeaway fish, chips and mushy peas on our way back from the hospital on a sunday evening. Served in boxes and so tasty and well cooked....More

We travel all over country, but this is our favourite fish and chip venue, Food always fresh, hot and extremely tasty. Staff are friendly, curtious and very helpful. Can't wait to revisit when we return to Devon in the spring.

Stopped here on arrival to Paignton. We've been disappointed recently with the fish and chips in the town. This was much better. Haddock and chips really tasty and piping hot

Popped in by chance for a small cod and chips, nothing to write home about. More expensive than others in the locality and quite disappointing in teems of taste.More

It is unfortunate that we could not please you more. We hope you can try us once more and maybe this time it will be much better. The staff has been shown how to make up meals so for a "thrown" appearance, is not acceptable....More

Depending on what you prefer, you can ask to have your food wrapped in paper or placed in boxes. As long as you let the staff know, they have always been willing from my experiences

you are allowed dogs, if they are quite big and loud they ask that you sit on the takeaway side. Small dogs that are quiet are welcome in the restaurant area especially when it is not overly busy
