Only went here because of the many awards so thought we would try the takeaway. We were both disappointed with the slow service and end product. I would recommend Drakes nearby in Babbacombe or Squires near Broadsands.

I'm a bit of a fish n chips perfectionist. I like my batter crisp with no uncooked batter inside. I like my cod or haddock to be white, flaky and full of flavour.

Very friendly staff, and the Fish & Chips are simply the best ! Book a table for the restaurant to avoid disappointment, although they do have a take away next door, and you can stroll down to the beautiful Babbacombe downs to eat your fish & chips.

Easy to see why this fish restaurant wins prizes. The Hake Special was a real treat, and good value too.

Friendly and welcoming service from all the staff we spoke with, good portion size, tasty fish (cod) in a really nice light batter, but I would say the chips were only average.

If you are going to have fish and chips, eat them here. Ok, not a gourmet meal, but both our American guests enjoyed them, as did we. The service was very friendly and we came away feeling very satisfied.
