Wow, really love the fries here, everything cooked to perfection. Crispy batter, fluffy potatoes. My favourite, fish, chips with curry sauce and pickled onions X

Without a doubt the very best chippie in Torquay - lovely battered cod and beautifully crispy chips - a lunchtime treat.

I'm home from Oz and fancied a chip butty. I walked up to tesco and purchased Lurpak and some fresh white rolls in preparation for a delicious chip butty. Paul's Plaice was closed! On a Saturday night! Soooo disappointed- I have heard good things. Luckily my brother was on his way home and found another chippy.

I really enjoyed my cod, chips and pickled eggs. The cod was fresh and full of flavour, the chips were lovely and every thing was very good value!
