We were so glad when our visitors decided to join us for a meal at Squires. The whole place has been re decorated and is much brighter. The food was beyond our greatest expectations. The fish was so fresh it must have been swimming just before we turned up!! The chips, curry sauce and mushy peas were outstanding. I guess... More

Best fish and chips ever! Restaurant very well presented, staff courteous, experienced in customer service and very efficient. Have to say toilets state of the art and immaculate!! Had cod and chips with a side and soft drink for two, £19.20, very affordable. Portions were huge.

14 of us were staying local and as the cooking facilities in our holiday home weren't the best then Fish and Chips were the order for Saturday night. We ordered a mix of fish, chicken and sausage meals all were cooked to a high standard and the fish was white, thick pieces in a light and fluffy batter. Can highly... More

Visited on a quiet Monday evening in November. It is obviously very popular for it's fish and chips but we decided to try the salmon with prawns and thermidor sauce and the fish curry. Both were very good and freshly cooked

Visited on Saturday evening and given the time of year was able to walk in and be seated straight away ...none of the waiting or queues like during the summer months!! Really good menu and lots of choice - a whole lot more than just fish and chips on offer. Definitely something for everyone. Vegetarian options, lots of delicious sounding... More

This family-owned fish restaurant is reputed by Devonians to have the best and freshest fish & chips in Britain. That's quite a claim and I wouldn't dispute it. The servers are friendly and attentive, the dining room is ultra-modern, bright, and cheerful. The fish is clearly fresh and lightly battered and fried.

We had cod and chips, sat upstairs and enjoyed the food and views overlooking the high street. Good service. Only thing that they need to consider is the slamming of doors by the staff.

Eleven of us wanted take-away fish and chips, and Squires were fine with taking an order so that we could pick it up at a particular time so that we could get to the theatre in Barnstaple. We had 7 adults and four children, but only ordered 2 adult meals and 9 small-portion meals, and there was LOADS. We couldn't... More

Excellent Fish and Chips, great price, but very busy on a Friday night so get there early. The set meal is good value and the chips and fish cooked perfectly.

Fantastic fish and chips, just be prepared for a long wait (eat in or take away) at peak times, which is most of the time at this very popular place!! Very efficient ordering system in the take away though avoids queue confusion or jumping

Thank Neal G
