This restaurant looked so full of promise. The interior was very clean and fresh. The staff were very welcome and accommodating. I ordered chicken curry and Jacket potato. Sadly I was very disappointed. The jacket potato was a good size and well cooked. However, the chicken curry was a great disappointment. Sadly it was nowhere near being a chicken curry.... More

There are a number of fish and chip restaurants in Paignton but this in my opinion is the best. The f&c are cooked fresh every time and you always get a superb result. Highly recommended

Me and the family have been staying in the area for a week now and I must say the fish at Mariners is the best around. It was flaky tender and very tasty, one downside was I had to sit outside as wheelchair bound. All in all a thumbs up

A great chippie, a nice clean spacious cafe with friendly staff, well cooked food and massive portions, my only couple of criticisms, please rethink your policy on allowing an adult to have a child's portion, were not trying to get food cheaper, its that my wife isn't a big eater, therefore, to much food is being left on the plate,...

Really great fish, chips and coffee. Nice staff, couldn't do enough for us. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. The tables and floors are clean, not sticky unlike most places we have been. Jasmine is especially nice interacting with us. We will be coming back again.

After doing some retail therapy we felt that we needed sustenance! So we decided on fish & chips it was by sheer chance that we saw the sign for this tucked away fish restaurant, what a lovely surprise when we walked inside a friendly greeting, no overbearing cooking smells, clean tables, clean floors everything was really nice. We asked if... More

Mariners has been running for quite a few years now, so I don't know if it's under new ownership, but what I do know is, they don't know how to cook battered fish. We had cod and chips to takeaway, and when I saw the fish being placed on the tray, I thought that it looked very pale. Upon starting... More

As most folk like a "Chippy" this place is excellent, AND very reasonable . Under a £5 for full meal . When we visit N Wales we pay DOUBLE that most sit in "Chippys" !
