Probably the best fish and chips shop in the country. Freshly cooked at all times. Worth leaving Torquay to eat this meal on the Babbacombe Downs. If you like fish and chips this is a must

Sorry I can not answer this question. You can always get in touch with them and ask. As somebody else has said you can always use the Takeaway if you can not take in your dog.
