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.

This restaurant was one of the best run I’ve ever been too, felt completely welcomed and was a lovely family feel to the place! The food was absolutely delightful and the halloumi was lovely! One of the best halloumi dishes I’ve ever experienced. The chips...were cooked to perfection and the owner was so bubbly and welcoming! Definitely would recommend and come again!More

Superb cod and chips takeaway last night. Fish was lovely with delicate crisp batter and chips were good, not greasy. Curry sauce was thick and tasty. Great value for what we had. Very impressed and fantastic way to start our short break in Braunton

We booked for a midday lunch, and although it was a Saturday, it was not busy and we were seated with menus quickly but then waited a long time for our order to be the taken. Haddock wasn't available and the large cod was disappointingly...thin. However, the cod was of excellent quality and the batter cooked well, tasty and crispy. Sadly, the chips were rather dry and the red wine had oxidised, making the taste bitter. Soft carbonated drinks are through a pump machine. Overall good value but would have liked faster service and moister chips with a thicker piece re the large cod. Also, fresher red wine would be more palatable. A dish of Ketchup only available on request and at a guess comes from Aldi. South 16, you are certainly more than OK - but you used to be superb. However, you are still better than Squires.More

Absolutely fantastic fish and chips. Plus a battered beef burger, with curry sauce. No matter what you order it's delivered. Great stuff, very friendly and willing to help, no matter what. Please give this chip shop time before any other chip shop in Braunton. Very...very good.More

Was on the look out for a fish and chip shop and came past this one, which turned out to be the best place in Braunton. We went in (3 kids and 2 adults) for dinner and was immediately seated. We were told that if...we wanted savaloy, it would take about 20 minutes to cook and of cause that's what 2 of the children wanted, so the lovely lady went ahead and sorted them out straight away while we had a look at the menu. Our food came quickly and we really enjoyed it! It was definitely one of the best fish and chips we have had. Would 100% recommend this place for either taking away or dinning in.More

We placed a large order online for a football club social event. South 16 rang us a couple of times with queries, were happy for us to add to the order and update the order. They were super flexible and accommodating. The food was all...ready to go when we went to collect and it was delicious. You couldn't have done more! Thank you so much.More

Best fish and chips by a country mile. The batter was deliciously crispy around perfectly flakey cod. We'll certainly be back.

Unfortunately South16 has taken a real slide in quality and quantity. I decided to give them a go again after being a Squires customer for a long time. Just so happened that I was tempted by an American Express offer, but it royally backfired. Payed...1/3 more for half the qty. that I would normally get round the corner, so won’t be back. Both me and my wife were left pretty embarrassed after treating the in laws and there not being enough for 2 let alone 4 after spending nearly £30, the only saving grace was the taste of the curry sauce, just a shame that you only get a spoonful. I like to shop local, but when you feel like it’s one sided it’s a really disheartening experience. Hopefully this series of bad reviews encourages a change of direction in a positive way. Good luck South16, I think you’ll need it.More

The batter on the fish was thick and not cooked just a thick sloppy goo. The potatoes that they used for chips the very small variety so your chips were just like eating the ends. And having tried chips in several other restaurants I do...know that they do not need to use these small potatoes as the other restaurants and chip shops don’t. Sorry to be so blunt but don’t want others to be disappointed over there meals.More

I've held off leaving a review until now, hoping that they will improve, but it's just not going to happen. We have family and friends who have used south 16 regularly, and we have all formed the same opinion..... The owners have given up. The...food is below par, and poorly cooked compared with their close competitors, and the front of shop young girls are far too inexperienced to be working unsupervised, as mistakes are a regular occurrence. Website prices do not reflect prices in the shop, not sure why, but don't rely on the website as it's wrong. I have asked around the people I know have eaten from here, the feedback is not good, and they now go elsewhere.... sadly I will now be doing the same. If management reads this, please take a hard look at the way you behave. Customers are the most important thing to your business, and being rude to them, and making them feel like a nuisance, is unacceptable when YOU get the order wrong and the customer complains , your response - (" I must make sure YOUR order is double checked by me every time in future", while pointing a finger at me) suggesting that it's only me who complains about orders being short. No apology, no smile just aggression and a harassed, stressed demeanor and I was your only customer at the time of ordering! I'll leave it there, literally.More

We have used South Sixteen many times, but last night the food was sub-standard. 1/2lb Burger tough and burnt, being over-cooked. Large Fish was mainly batter - very little fish and just warm. Needless to say, our fish Burger and chips was resigned to our...bin. The wait was long and takeaway service hectic. It may be that they are trying to serve tables and waiting collections, losing track of time. We really do enjoy our fish & chips but a very, very bad meal. We can only say if this is the standard of food and service, then go elsewhere. We have seen a slow decline in food as we have ordered steamed fish which had bones in it and a pizza that once again was hard and overcooked;More
