This used to be a favourite place to eat back in 1997/2015 but it has gone right down hill.The food is okay but nothing special there is better fish and chips around!!! The customer service I always said was good here and the staff very friendly just a shame the food standards have gone down hill.

Are you sure this is for Squires of Paignton? It was still an ice cream parlour back in 1997 And We have closed Oct - April for the past 5 years. More

As having a wheat allergy I have to watch what I eat. Squires is the place for me. The batter was really crispy.

My cod was lovely and fresh but the batter was far too thick and gluggy and ruined the taste - in the end I had to peel the batter off like a banana to get to the fish... other than the batter, and if the chips could have been cooked a little longer (our preference on the chips) it would... More

Thanks for the review. If light batter is required please ask we are happy to oblige. The lady does not normally serve on takeaway but only steps in when help is needed. More

The stairs to the toilet are a normal flight of stairs as found in any house. We do not have a ground floor toilet. Unfortunately, people don't like to be told the nearest disabled facilities are the public conveniences. More

Excellent fish and chips perfectly cooked and well presented mushy peas a little too stiff for my taste but would forgive that to receive food of this quality any day
