“Best fish and chips ever had”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This place is amazing. Expect queues. Best fish ever had. Light batter. Chunky fish like the 70's. Awesome chips. You won't be disappointed....

“The worst burger and chips”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Having lived in Devon my entire 29 years to date and having visited many fish & chip shops, this is one of the worst fish & chip shops I have visited; expensive and of quite a poor standard. The burger was disgusting and half of it subsequently binned, the sausage extremely hot and overcooked, the chips tasteless.
Avoid this fish & chip shop

“Not too special.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We recently ate in at this chip shop.
We were quite disappointed with the quality of the food. The batter was soft and the fish seemed
to have been cooked from frozen. The chips appeared to have been kept warm for an over long
period prior to serving.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
But the food? No thanks.

“Tourists Beware!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I have lived in kingsbridge for five years but only ever tried the codfather once before, which was of an ok standard. but it was out of season? I recently decided to take my two daughters for a treat as the weather was warm. so we stood in line with the rest of the tourists that fancied fish and chips on a friday at 6pm. half an hour later we made it in to the door. woop woop we thought?? but then we realised why we had been standing outside for so long. The locals????! can come in the other door, shout there orders out and get served asap! even saying sly comments about the tourists while there at it? i seriously would of left and not waited another 20 minutes if it wasn't for my starving children. Come on the codfather have some customer standards.
