Our last night of our break and we decided to have fish and chips. Came across this place and duly ordered with a carton of curry too. The fish was ok, the chips were disgusting, white looking and just tasted of oil and the curry sauce was just a lump in the carton. Extremely disappointed, fish and chips shouldn't be... More

The cafe chose us rather than us the cafe - there were a number of big inflatables in the park opposite and by the time my 4 yrs old finished with all, she was starving. The cafe is actually a Fish and chips 90s style, from the crowded tables to the white paper table clothes. The waitresses prefer to sit... More

Fish and battered sausgaes were nice! I had to pick out half the chips they were too hard to eat! Think by other good comments, we had just been unlucky and got half of the load left in the chip box before as the reviews are very good! Ive worked in a chippy so know the drill! By time we... More

The chips were fantastic, the fish was nice. We had ordered large fish and large chips and then heard the server being berated for taking the order as the plates aren't big enough. The chips came on a separate plate with comments about "better finish them all" - said in jest but a little un-nerving. We had paid for the... More

We dine regularly at Kings and always receive a friendly welcome. The fish is always cooked to order so is always fresh. The prices are very reasonable and they do a special deal for pensioners which is very helpful. The fish and potatoes are of the best quality and their batter is scrumptious.

The fish and chips at Kings are the best in Ilfracombe, probably the best in the whole of Devon. They are always freshly cooked and the portions are enormous. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the service in the restaurant is good. Highly recommended.
