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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stopped using mariners,far too expensive £3.20 for small portion of chips!! You can buy 2 bags of spuds for what they charge, also chips were not traditional cut to chunky and dry, a bit of grease wouldn’t go a miss, will not use again.

We have eaten here over the years when visiting Paignton and used to enjoy visiting the Mariners. Good fish and chips, sadly customer service is very poor- almost uncommunicative except for taking the payment. . No welcome, didn’t ask if the food was ok, no...goodbyes. Charging folk for tap water and £1 for a slice of bread( noticed this on the menu) is a bit much. We won’t be returning.More

I ordered through just eat the fish and chips cost over 19 pounds so I was expecting excellent food. It was supposed to arrive at 7pm but arrived at 7.55 and was cold and had been flattened in tha bag. I tried to heat it...but it was a load of crap so it went into the bin. But my disappointment was made worse when I went into the shop to complain about just eat and one of the guys called me a liar. I have had fish and chips here many times but I think it must of changed hands needless to say I and my friends will never be customers againMore

This fish and chip restaurant serves the best fish and chips in Paignton and at a reasonable price. The staff are always friendly and helpful. They have an extensive menu and an inside restaurant for dining in as well as take away. The cod is...a good size and excellent quality. Definitely a must visit while in the area.More

Over priced and inedible. Cost £6.50 for cheesy chips and over half of them had to be thrown away as they were dry tasteless and overcooked. I had also asked for no salt and vinegar yet when I hot it home it was covered in...salt. I had planned to buy a drink, but 500ml bottles of drink are £2.60 each. This is not my first visit, nor is it the first time I've had to throw my food away. Will not be using them again as it seems to get worse on each visit.More

Best in Torbay. All beautifully cooked - light & crispy batter, the small portion of chips is plenty for 2 people. Excellent service with a smile. We’ll be back! ❤️

I had gluten free sausage in batter, chips & curry sauce. It was absolutely delicious, the best I have tasted. My partner had burger & chips and said his was really good and my Mum had savaloy & chips and said hers was the best...she had eaten in a long time. The shop is always clean and the staff are friendly. I just wish we lived closer as we come from Southend-on-SeaMore

We ordered Gluten free haddock and chips, bottle of water and OAP GF fish, chips and a pot of tea for just over £25. The portions were good and the chips were crispy. The staff were ok. Toilets are only upstairs and shared with the...Indian restaurant/takeaway. The stairs and toilets would benefit from some toilet cleaner and redecoration.More
