Visited for a quick, cheap lunch... Food was average... Resturant interrior was a bit run down... Staff were handling food and not wearing hair nets... Asked the lad who brought our food to us for some sauce he told us we needed to get it from the main counter... Got up and walked to the main counter and the lad walked and stood behind it... Asked woman behind main counter for tartare sauce and red sauce and was give one small sachet of red sauce and one call sachet of brown sauce.. Took the brown sauce back to the counter and explained the wrong sauce was give... And the lad behind the desk was about to charge me for a different type of sauce. After our meal we went for a walk and saw many places down the same road which appeared to be of a better standard resturant.

This was a large group arriving at a busy lunchtime. They were told when ordering there would be a 30 min wait because of the variety of meals ordered. Unfortunately their special requests were not passed to the kitchen and this was obviously disappointing to them when food arrived.
Our café is clean and comfortable. All staff wear hats. No one in hospitality wear hair nets. We have a 5 star hygiene rating which we worked hard to achieve and maintain.

This is one of many eating places on Torbay road, the main tourist road in Paignton. The fish and chips are poor quality, plenty of better places to eat within a few yards. I went there having experienced Squires of Churston, but I was disappointed.

This restaurant is the best place for eating Fish&Chips, everything is cooked to order, so you know it's not just kept warm till an order for it comes along. The staff are very polite, and the restaurant is clean and tidy, the portions are "Ginoromus",the batter is crisp, not the horrible soggy stuff; so all in all would I recommend Squires, of course I would.
