On the plus point, 'cooked to order', so i didn't mind the wait. Whilst waiting i noticed a sign say saying 'we don't do fast food, we do it as fast as we can!' Received the order and drove home (approx 8 mins) on arrival at home we decanted the order onto our warmed plates but we were really dissapointed... More

This is our local chippy and it is difficult to stay away (must think of the hips)! Friendly staff, a wide range of food on offer, all very tasty and there are gluten free options (although not on Fridays for some reason).

Wow, this must be the worst fish and chip experience I have had to date. First impressions were telling me to leave, the doors were quite dirty and the smoke from the fire last year was still very evident on the widow sills. No food was on display apart from sausages and pies and if this was a busy chip... More

There are lots of fish and chip joints in Torbay but this one is open for fewer hours and tries harder to please. Nice clear menu with good choices and I noticed while waiting for my walk-in order that the orders to be collected were being cooked to a specifc pick-up time, not cooked when the order received and put...

Not sure if this has changed hands yet again but nothing like it has been. Going early Friday evening you would expect something decent but unfortunately not. The fish was OK with good batter but the chips were not very nice at all, just little odd bits with hardly any full size chips. I'd like to support a local shop... More

Never had a bad meal from here. You can tell they are decent chips and food always cooked fresh. The meal deals are a good call for a family or group of friends and I like that they reward loyalty with their buy 10 get one free on chips card

Tried this chippy as we moved and our usual one is too far across town. Soooo glad we gave it a try, the chips are amazing! So many either don't cook long enough or let the oil go too long! Been here twice and both times the fish and chips were fantastic! My sons battered sausage was great too, batter... More

We've not used our local chippy for some time but decided to give it a try this weekend. We had fish and chips and really couldn't fault it. Very tasty, well presented, not fatty, very generous portions and reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend Shiphay Chippy and we will be using it again.

Have avoided this fish and chip shop although it is on our doorstep because the last time I went there (must have been the previous owners) the food was pretty awful. However on Friday night we suddenly decided on fish and chips and were worried our usual place may shut before I got there. Got our fish and chips from... More

Moved to the area a few months ago and now this is our local chippy. Really good chips and burgers are amazing especially the hot one it is hot as well. Big portions and well worth the money. Will continue to use as best in Torquay.
