Maddys is on St. James Place - Ilfracombe - serving fish and chips in their takeaway, and in their so called Cafe stuck in the 1970s like all the rest of them.

Quick service, good value for money (around £20 for 2 large cod and chips and 2 mini cod and fish, although the mini cod wasn't much smaller and decent portions), delicious fish and chips enjoyed by all the family.

Some of the best fish and chips I think we have ever had! Chips were made from new potatoes fish was frozen at sea! Beautifully presented with some salad! Waitress was charming! Do try it - you won't be disappointed! Great value for money!

Absolutely cracking fish chips and mushy peas, the haddock (My choice) was perfectly fried and came with superb chips, a side of peas that were really tasty. Nice clean spot with chatty staff, excellent.

We had fish and chips which were lovely and really big plates of food and my little boy had a hot dog, all really nice! And were made to feel very welcome by staff and even gave my little boy a lollipop before we left. Would defo recommend popping in if you fancy fish and chips by the seaside!

Enjoyed a good old fashioned fish and chips. Not to every ones taste, but it was done well and I enjoyed it for old times sake. Fish was cooked but not over cooked like some places.
