We had to wait a few minutes while it was cooked but this was no problem, especially as we were invited to take a seat while we waited. They do an option of a small or larger portion fish and chips - a great... read more

The fish was soggy and pretty inedible, chips are ok but wouldn't eat here again. Couldn't really take it back either as I had taken it home and to take it back would have been a nuisance so just threw it away. Waste of money. Shame as this place years ago use to be very good.

I tipped up here at 6pm on a rainy December night with 6 old age pensioners and our driver. Lots of dementia, a wheelchair and zimmers and not a little confusion and deafness amongst our party. We were welcomed in and they stayed late for us, offering hot drinks on the house and an extra cup of tea for the... More

As the title says the best fish and chips in Torquay by far !!! this is the chippy at the end of the harbour near the bridge near the Living coast.

I would just like to apologise for your poor experience at Chandlers. I am the manager and I have had to leave the chippy for a couple of days and I feel really disappointed that the food was not up to standard and the service doesn't sound good either. I would always say that if anything is not up to... More

If you're taking in the sights of Torquay Harbour and start to feel hungry, treat yourself to some delicious fresh Fish and Chips at "Chandlers Chippy." The shop is basic, as people say, but spotlessly clean and tidy with an old style ambiance and the staff are friendly. While enjoying the harbour views from our table, we savoured a generous...

The Chandlers Chippy was recommended to us by the Land Train driver and it didn't disappoint. We ate on the premises which were basic but spotless. The meals were piping hot, thick, flaky cod with not too much batter served with perfect chips and mushy peas. The mug of tea was excellent also. We were told that the proprietors have... More
