Description: There are a few fast food eat in and out food places in Plymouth some of which have a modest cult status in the city either because of their prominent and convenient position or because of a consistent reputation. West Hoe Fryers has such a reputation for being close to the Hoe foreshore and parkland and foe taking care to maintain traditional standards. There is a steady faytime trade and often a queue for the cafe eating area. Worth a Tripadvisor listing.

“Simply Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Three of us went for the sit-down meal early evening and we were not disapponinted.Nothing fancy or flashy just the best chippie in town.Tasty,hot and ample portions with friendly and helpful staff.All seating taken with non stop takeaway customers. Cost £20 including cups of tea.If theirs a better chippie in town then it must be stupendous.Will be returning in the near future.

“So splendid I travelled from Egypt to sample the goods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Salam!!

Having frequented this fine establishment many times over the last 5 years, I always find myself going back for more. The service is exceptional, the owner very much like Rain Man with his extensive memory of names and orders. The food is second to none (aside from Rocksalt apparently), including amazing chips and fish sourced from renewable places. Can't fault the place at all, you have to try it to believe it :D Cheers Nick!!

“Best Fish and Chips (the cod is awesome) in Plymouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

If you want good customer service with great takeaway or eat in chip shop food this is the place in Plymouth.

The owner is always there with constant enthusiasm and banter, almost american style customer service, excellent, well done.

The cod is simply superb, with an excellent batter.

I can't fault the place, I've been going with my family for 4 years since we discovered it on moving back to Plymouth and cannot recommend this place highly enough.

PROS - eat in or takeaway
- limited parking right outside
- friendly staff and brilliant customer service from the owner
- great take away food

CONS - NONE!!

“simply the best fish and chips ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The four of us called in here for take away and were pleased to find table to be able to sit in. The batter on the fish is light and not fatty in the slightest and chips are nice and fresh. Curry sauce is tasty too. Great sense of humour by the man behind the counter. Will be back without hesitation.
