Description: Grandad Nicols is now open and serving the residents and guest of torquay with freshly cooked " old fashioned fish and chips" the traditional way. We serve only the highest graded fish from the clean waters of iceland and local specials from brixham fish market, and home made specials like Haddock & Parsly fish cakes and our famous yorkshire fish cakes. Due to a number of people thinking we have stale or old oil we have made the decision to change the type of oil we fry in we used to use beef dripping but we have had some comments saying that the oil was stale old etc. So we have now change to vegetable oil which is more commonly found in the fish and chip shops and most people are accustomed to

The food at the Aztec was excellent, and as a family the youngsters really enjoyed playing on the play park area within the grounds.

I've tried most Fish and Chip shops in the area over the past few years and, what with being located so close to a major fishing port, you'd expect the competition to be stiff. In fact this 'just ain't so'. A number of the more 'famous venues', in my humble opinion, are just resting on their laurels, and charging appropriately! Grandad's, by exception, produces a truly excellent take-away dinner and at at very reasonable prices. The service too is unusually good... Fast, efficient and friendly. Give it a try. Bon appetite!!
