Having had chips from Maddy’s over 15 years ago, they are still as good as I remember. If you’re in Ilfracombe, then it’s the best chippy in town. I couldn’t resist as cone of piping hot FRESH Maddy’s chips on a cold February day.

We ordered cod and chips which came with a fresh side salad. The meal was hot and the proportions generous. Fish, batter, chips and salad were tasty. The service was friendly and timely. It was a Saturday evening visit at around 6.30 and we ate in.

Lovely chips, nice curry sauce, the batter was a bit soft in places but overall pretty good! Not the easiest places to park and pick up your meal thou. Will certainly use again

In Ilfracombe for the day on our way home from Lundy.Called for a drink at a local pub. Recommended to try Maddys for fish supper. Good recommendation. Fish was real good, plenty chips. All served with optional salad, slice of lemon and tartare sauce. Good service, clean bright and tidy. Piping hot. All in all pretty good. Bit pricey. Worth... More

We went to maddy fish and chip shop once. The fish was nice and the chips were wonderful. This chip shop was a bit pricey but you get a very large portion. We had mushy peas as well and curry sauce all very nice.
