Several visits now to this fine establishment, Fish and Chips at it's best. Winner several times of the Best of England Fish and Chips, and quite rightly so. If your in this neck of the woods and want Fish and Chips, you should be going here. Babbacombes hidden gem without a doubt.

Good fish and chips but overly expensive and always a queue/wait. I would go again but equally wouldn't go out of my way for it. Had a takeaway so service was fine.

Food was wonderful. Portions just right and the food was nice and hot. The only v slight negative was the service was slightly slow and there was a bit... More

Totally different experience ordered a large cod and chips and a medium cod and chips. When the waitress came out she said two medium fish and chips and when we corrected her all of... More

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to hear that there were various issues with your recent visit. All of our fish portions are cut using weight measurements, hence why some fish may look 'longer or wider' than others. All large cod should be about 9oz of fish whereas the medium should... More

We phoned late Saturday after arriving in Torquay a little later than expected and was able to book for 8 that evening. The restaurant was busy when we arrived but the service was excellent the and the fish and chips well worth the excellent reviews that other customers have given. The desserts also looked good but we were so full... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant, the food was excellent and quick to be served, we were very impressed with the service that was very friendly. The actual restaurant was very cosy or perhaps small, with not having too much space between tables was off putting. I have to say that it should all be perfect with the... More

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our restaurant. I am really pleased that you seemed to have a great time. I was disappointed however that you felt our food was over priced. We use products of an extremely high quality which does usually mean our food is more expensive than a standard 'takeaway... More

After my last review I felt perhaps I was a little harsh so I decided to try it again. This time the fish was perfect and the service was fast and friendly. I also like the fact that they no longer bring the fish and chips through the restaurant in a basket. I do however stand by my previous comments... More

Good evening, Thank you for taking the time to re-review our restaurant. I am very pleased you had a more enjoyable experience this time. With regard to the pea paper cups, we have recently changed to serve them in these to reduce washing up time, thus reducing waiting times and food prep time. However, we are always very happy to...
