Amazing. Fresh, perfectly cooked, close to the beach or harbour wall, great value too. Don't miss out on fish and chips here if you're in Ilfracombe.

Very enjoyable fish and chips on a wet summers day. Wish we'd ordered one of the locally caught fish, but still the cod was v good.

Always fresh fish, real flakey! Decent batter to not too greasy. Chips are good as standard. Prices are quite steep but this is to be expected when the fish it that fresh. Cheers guys, we'll be back 🙌

The best gluten free fish and chips I have ever had. It's worth giving them a call before you visit as it takes about 20 mins for the seperate fryer to heat up. We visited twice in three days!! Speaks volumes
