Friday night treat

Last minute decision for a take away. Cod was great quality. Chips were well shared between the two of us. I have had nicer mushy peas though. The shop is always spotless and kept to a good standard. Really good value for money.

Very clean fish bar and cafe and friendly proprieters, but can see why it was empty as upon getting home we discovered the 4 supposedly adult fish and chips were the size of children's portions from our usual chippie. Very disappointed so would not return.

Evening visit for eat in fish and chips. Really friendly and welcoming, very clean and comfortable, a pleasant atmosphere despite the fact we were the only ones in there. All cooked fresh, tasty and good value. Definitely worth a visit!

I'm sorry but with all the praise we had to try this fish bar in Bovey Tracey on the edge of Dartmoor. We planned an evening to celebrate the Equinox Solstice on Dartmoor on Wednesday the 23rd September with a celebration drink and prepared our food venture. We purchased fish and chips and went up to Dartmoor, a mere 5... More

Family holiday with people of all ages but everyone enjoyed an excellent takeaway of fish and chips and pies. The fish was fresh and tasty - perfectly cooked with what seemed like fresh oil making the chips really good. A particular favourite was the home made pies - the beef was plentiful with yummy gravy and a perfect crust. We'll... More

Possibly the worse fish and chips I've tasted in a long time. Chips were anaemic and the batter on the fish was soggy. The young server didn't even offer salt and vinegar on the chips, exactly the same for the guy in front who had to ask for it and was met with a vacant youthful stare. We won't return.

We called in for an evening meal of fish and chips and when we saw the sit-in restaurant area we were delighted,as we had previously thought it was take-away only. When we visited they were extremely busy but were still able to serve us promptly with a very good meal at a reasonable price. The staff ,despite being so busy... More

Simply the very best. Boneless and skinless fish, chips are fried properly so you get a crunch but a fluffy middle. Fish as said is great, pies made in the shop Tartar sauce made at the shop. One of my favourite takeaways is fish and chips so I have had quite a few in my life and this shop offers... More

These guys really need to reconsider the portion size. 14 chips and a tiddly fish rattled around an expensive looking box. Come on! The phrase cheap as chips is real.
