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.
