Went in today and bit confused. So many staff on, not knowing what prices are, but it didn't matter what I paid. I will say it was just like my mum used to make it. Beautiful. Be back for more. Thank you

We were in Torquay for a few days and took a trip into Paignton to go to the pier. We were after some Fish and Chips to eat on the sea front/pier. We came across this place, and thought it looked like an ideal place for fish and chips....how wrong we were!! We ordered fish and chips plus sausage and... More

We were looking forward to some traditional Fish and chips. What we got was frozen pre-packed catering Fish and chips. Yes it was freshly cooked for us but if I had wanted this sort of fish I would have at least bought Birds eye and cooked it myself!! This was bought from the Pier on the sea side what are... More

Popped in here for a cream tea. A very friendly welcome from the new owner but would advise not microwaving the scones! HOwever we returned the next day and who could say no to a fish finger sandwich. The cheesy chips were amazing too. Good luck to the new owner hope you have a successful season.

Visited today for lunch, which was OK. I had a cheeseburger and chips, which was greasy but OK. It was sold as 'homemade beef burger' but was clearly just one of those standard, grey catering burgers. Glass given for our drinks were dirty, so drank from the cans. Staff were friendly however, location good with sea views. As someone else... More

Nice, warm, welcome, The All day breakfast we had was beautiful. It was a sublime location for us to enjoy the food and the weather. The food tastes great! Couldn't knock the service either, they made sure we had everything we wanted/needed. Will definitely be back in the near future.

There were two people in front of me in the queue, when it got to my turn the server had a conversation with the people in the back for a few minutes about how much change to get and then said 'you'll have to serve' to them. The counter was approached by another member of staff who then proceeded to... More

We had a lovely meal in here and staff were very friendly. The waiter was always cleaning the tables straight away and disinfecting which was great to see especially as it was such a hot day with insects about. My husband and I had fish and chips which were lovely and my kids had burger and chips which they enjoyed.... More
