Yum

Maddys is somewhere we have to visit on every trip to Ilfracombe. We all love the fish and chips they're great. In fact this is one of only chip 2 shops I'll eat the fish as it is so good. Do visit it's great.

Traditional fish and chip restaurant with an adjoining take away. The meals are clearly cooked to order and come out piping hot. Batter and chips lovely and crisp. We popped in on a rainy August day and were more than pleased with the welcoming service, hot tea and delicious food. We will return on our next visit to Ilfracombe!

My husband got a takeaway from here and we were a bit disappointed after all the fantastic reviews. I mean we ate it ,but the main thing was the chips were a bit soggy and greasy. Sausage was good but the fish was all batter (crispy though) but not a lot of fish inside just lots of air. Maybe we... More

Firstly, this is a traditional fish and chips restaurant, so anyone expecting anything else should look elsewhere. We went on a rainy day and were made to feel very welcome. The cod was large and in crispy batter. The chips were crispy and hot! The only thing I would critique is the curry sauce - which I found to be... More

Our first night in Ilfracombe we wandered down to the harbour and found Maddy's. Our group, 17 of us , were served by friendly and helpful staff and the food was hot, tasty and reasonably priced. We did a return visit later in the week with the same result

Whilst on holiday I came here for lunch. We were greeted with a very friendly and warm welcome. The staff were accommodating to quite a big group of people and even moved the tables for us which was a very kind gesture. The staff were helpful, attentive and friendly throughout the duration of the meal and the food was excellent.... More

During our holiday to Devon I tried lots of fish and chips whilst eating out but these were by far the best in every way. The portion sizes are very generous - I was gutted I didn't have room for dessert as they sounded lovely and at a VERY reasonable price. The service was excellent, we were made to feel... More

What you would expect from a chippy. Used to come every year on holiday and enjoyed a visit after a good few years away. Only negative was that having finished our food, we stayed whilst finishing our drinks. Despite the place being nearly empty the waitress kept an eye on us - either she wanted us out quick or didn't... More
