We arrived on the first sunny Saturday of spring. The place was fairly full but the tables were even fuller with uncleared dishes. After a long wait our cod and chips turned up. Fish just about OK, chips and peas cold. Fallen chips on the floor and paper napkins fluttered away as the door was open - both he as... More

Very unfriendly staff, my husband went to counter to ask for some ketchup young girl placed it on the counter without even looking at him, never mind speaking. We ate in, when finished popped to the loo, all I can say is it was disgusting! Filthy! They should be ashamed. Never again.

Wow, what can I say except believe the other poor reviews on here because they are correct. Visited last night, 22/2/17 for a take away for the family. Being on holiday here and by the seaside we all really fancied a good fish and chip dinner. Unfortunately we were all left dissatisfied. Everything was cooked fresh on ordering which is... More

Worst fish and chip experience of my life. Frozen chips and soggy, not cooked 'fish'. I feel sorry for the poor animal.

Being one of the few places open on bank holiday Monday we decided to give it a try. Oh my word, I have never encountered such horrendous service in any restaurant. I think if the woman had cracked a smile she may just have collapsed. I stood at the counter waiting 8 minutes for someone to come out the back... More

Visited on Monday lunchtime. I'm always a little concerned at a chip shop when the only food on display is a few sausages. No individual prices for items, only set costs of cod & chips etc. We ordered kids meal of fishcake & chips with an extra fishcake, cod & chips with curry sauce. Service was pretty awful, no smile...

I visited here in the Summer with my partner. This was the only fish and chip shop open and having read the Tripadvisor reviews beforehand we were reluctant to try. However, we went against our gut feeling and decided to give it a go. We were served by a rude teenager whilst all of the other employers stood and stared... More

We popped in for a quick lunch and ordered fish and chips. We sat outside in the glorious Sunday sunshine in lovely Dawlish and watched the world and the black swans go by. Really tasty meal and they even take debit cards. Perfect 10/10
