This chip shop used to be what you expected from a chip shop, nice food at an affordable price. Now it is bad food at a ridiculously high price. I will not eat from here again. Trying to make it something it's not

Fish was fine, batter looked pale and worn out, and price was high. Edible, but pricey! However, I think this is about the only local chippy locally, so if you fancy fish and chips, this is it!

Went with friends -had cod n chips scampi and chips and a sausage n chips for £38! Cannot fault the food was excellent , just not enough chips for a man, lemon wedges and tartare sauce a finishing touch and excellent coffee! The weather was humid which apparently made the floor like an ice rink even though it was amusing... More

We were staying close by in Bovey Tracey so popped out for one portion of cod (my husband doesn't eat fish) and a large chips to share. There was a May Day celebration going on in the town so the longish wait was acceptable. The chips were really fresh and crispy, but the fish (rather small) looked soggy and on... More

Stopped by the fish bar which we have used on many occasions. I reviewed over a year ago and thought it was very good. Since then however the portions have got smaller. I paid £5.50 for the cod and it was tiny. See picture uploaded separately It was tasty though. I also had chips (no problems there) and mushy peas.... More

It would appear that I am not the only customer to be disappointed by the supposed "large" portion of chips. I dread to think how meagre a normal portion is. (frowny face)

Just amazing. A faultless service with faultless food. Freshly cooked and prepared. Frwsh oils. We are never ever disappointed. And will promise you will never be disappointed either.

Have been using Bovey Fish Bar for about 6 Months and have always found the products very good, however, tonight I had the best chips I have ever eaten and at 59 I have certainly eaten quite a few, the attention to detail is exceptional and well worth a visit

We've been customers since Steve and Mandy took this business over about 3 years ago, and have always loved their fish and chips. Some other reviewers complain about the price... but maybe they're happy with the huge portions and appalling quality of some other chippies, some of them not too far away from this one. We're not. Where else do... More

I can always rely on the 'chippy' for a large portion of grub when the funds are low.. but not in this Gordon Ramsey wannabe 'fish bar restaurant' phaha! Thought I'd chose a large portion of chips for me and my partner to share as I usually do, along side just a sausage and chicken. All got boxed up together... More
