Great service; no request was too much trouble! It was a big order - 19 servings, but all delivered with a laugh and a smile!

We were the only couple in there at the time of ordering, food was expensive, and wasn't anything special. We were both VERY SICK when we got home. We won't be going back.

It looks very smart and clean however the food was greasy, the portions were small, tasteless and expensive, and badly packed with the chips being squashed at the bottom of the bag. Definately won't be going back again! Chudleigh Chippy much much better and you actually feel welcome there!!

Since I experienced the cod and chips from Bovey Fish Bar last week I've done nothing but fantasise obsessively about them. These were far and away the best fish and chips ever so whatever I say here isn't going to do them justice. While purchasing wasn't the friendliest service I've ever received I am happy to overlook the frosty air... More

This was the worst take away food that I've ever experienced. Ridiculously expensive, poor quality and appalling service The portion of fish was small even though it's sold as large, the chips were diabolical, they smelt horrid as if cooked in very old oil and they comprised of all the small off cuts, no decent sized chips This place won't...

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!
