Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Popped in at lunchtime while my laundry was on in the launderette next door. Sausage and chips was the best and the lady who served me couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back!

Heard good things about this chippy so while staying in Torquay over the weekend we took our chance and had tea delivered, even though there was another chippy just by us! Fish, chips, cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, mushy peas and curry sauce later we were stuffed and happy as such great quality and value for money, you won't be disappointed. From placing order with one lovely lady to the meal being delivered by another lovely lady, it was a pleasant experience from start to finish :D The only advice we would give is to order lunch time for evening delivery as so popular.

We get our fish and chips delivered by Lisa who is a smashing lady. Very friendly she always has time to have a chat. She delivers the fish and chips with a lovely smile. The quality of the fish is superb. I would recommend them all the time.

Best takeaway in Torquay! The staff are so friendly and the service is fast and so easy to phone up and order delivery. The food arrives quickly and by a lovely driver, we are so grateful we could order from here while we were on holiday 2 nights in a row! The food was amazing and my kids loved the chicken nuggets and said they were the best they have ever had! Thank you so much for saving the day for dinner!

This has to be the best chippy in the area. I like to think I’ve been to most of the chippies in Torquay and this is seriously the best. The batter is the crispiest. The chips are the largest. The curry sauce is the best I’ve ever had. My personal recommendation would be the smoked haddock fish cake! As far as fish and chips go, you won’t find better! Well done guys. I’ll be back again next week :-)

Ordered Fish & Chips for catch up with residents in the flats, everybody agreed how brilliant they were. The staff are so friendly and give great service, and the delivery time was perfect. Would highly recommend, and will order again soon.

Holidaying locally in an appartment, take-away fish & chips are a must. Can highly recommend the haddock and chips, freshly cooked to order, and the smoked haddock fishcake and chips. Beautifully cooked chunky chips which were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy inside. Clearly using clean oil and taking pride in their produce. Mushy peas were a little too pureed for my taste but the curry sauce was delicious. Would have had take-away every night if we hadn't already made plans elsewhere. Great to see as much recyclable packaging used as possible. Top quality local chippy!
