I had heart bypass surgery in July and was informed that I should avoid fatty foods so fish and chips were off the menu However while in Lynmouth we noticed this Fish and Chip shop and on the outside next to the menu was a sign displaying all the ingredients and fat content of the Fish & Chips... read more

Having seen all the recent reviews it would seem that what you get is the luck of the draw. Having been talked out of a sandwich at the Rising Sun (bad mistake) we visited this establishment. It is fair to say that there is no sense of joy here - we ended up with a poor meal especially chips that... More

I am bewildered by some of the less than positive reviews here. We have been to this chip shop many times over a number of years. It's a chip shop that has seating, not a full on restaurant and yet some people expect restaurant style service. The quality of the fish and chips that I have received has always been... More

Visited June 2014 and was completely overjoyed with the fish and chips I ordered at this superb restaurant. I can honestly say that me and my husband agreed that this is the "best Fish and Chips at Fish on the Harbour, we have ever had". The fish was so big and chunky, super fresh and perfect chips. You don't want... More

Best place I have ever tried in England so far. The staffs were efficient and friendly. The service was good and fast and the taste of the fish was simply amazing. Highly recommended! I will definitely visit the place again in the near future.

I've been in this restaurant few times already this year and I have to admin - tuna&Mayo sandwich is delicious, but my favourite is Cod served with a side salad. what's also good is that you can eat inside or in the garden. I think it's the only fish&chips in Lynmouth worth visiting. Staff really efficient and friendly ! Will... More

Called into this so called restaurant yesterday, and decided to chose the 1/2 chicken and chips. The chicken I was served up with was 90% bone with a 50p sized portion of breast, which was dried up. The cost was almost £9 for a cheap cut of the chicken, as a 1/2 chicken should have plenty of breast meat !... More

Great fish and chips with good service - one of the only places left to eat after 6pm along the front, on a Sunday evening.

We ordered 4 large cod and chips but they had run out of cod so we settled for haddock. The portions were adequate but not particularly generous. The batter was thick and crispy. I found the fact the ketchup and sauces in were in sachets and an anonymous brand a bit off putting although it tasted fine actually. The toilets... More
