“Best Cod & Chips”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

OK, so I love this chippy. Food made to order, lovely fresh fish, as their slogan says 'tomorrow's fish is still in the sea'. You queue, order your meal, which is then made to order, take it to the promenade and sit and watch the boating activity on the River Dart. Watch those seagulls though; they may try and steal your food! Prices are fine - the cod is really white and fresh, no skin, in a lovely batter, served in a cardboard tray with a slice of lemon. Superb! Owner is well known chef Mitch Tonks who has written several books on fish. This chip shop has a sit down version on the front at Dartmouth too.

“too long a wait”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

First must say the cod and chips were yummy, really very good but the wait of 45 minutes was not worth it. They cook to order but could get the system sorted out a bit better. Would use this chippy again if there was no queue.

“Great food, but...”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Couldn't fault the food. The wait was quite a long one in a very small room, which is okay as the food is freshly done to order. What marked them down though was the rather dopey serving girl, who, after seeing me walk in, spend several minutes faffing with food trays before asking if I was being served. It wasn't like there was anyone else who could have served me!
