Best chippy in the South West by far! Succulent, flaky meaty cod with crispy batter. Like fish and chips should be. You rarely find proper fish and chip shops like this anymore. Shop was clean and tidy, good customer service and the food was well presented.

The food here is fine, and it would be nice to try more of it, but they seem to be permanently shut. Perhaps we have just been unlucky with the times we have visited.

Hi I own 50% of the business with my Mother I am a silent partner apologies we weren't open much earlier i the year my Nan on my Mum's side slowly died of cancer which was diagnosed last year and whilst my Mum was looking after her in her dying months we made the decision not to employ temporary staff as our hygiene and quality standards may have dropped. I can confirm that as my Nan has now passed we are currently open 7 days a week and hope to see you in the future.

Called in whilst down that way on holiday, nice to see 5 star rating in the window however, found we were queue jumped by a relative who was served quicker!! After then waiting for fish to be cooked the fish wasn't actually included in our bag of food!!! Paid £12 but then after getting back into our caravan and serving up only realised and too late to then return - spoilt our meal and made the Chips and sausages being very expensive. Chips weren't that nice either.
