“Fish by the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We had fish chips and curry sauce x2.we had to wait as the fish was cooked fresh.well worth the wait.fish was beautiful and batter was light.the chips were a bit crisp for us.we also had a child's meal.chicken nuggets and chips and a drink . All were good portions. The place was very clean and the toilets were very nice. All together we paid nearly £15.we ate by the same.perfect.

“Lovely fresh fish.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

You'd expect decent fish at the seaside, and they didn't dissapoint. Chips weren't the best I've had, but perfectly nice. Interesting little touch of serving the condiments (ketchup, tartar and so on) in a beach bucket!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Found this place whilst looking at places to eat on the internet before our weekend away in Combe Martin. We sat in the restuarant and were impressed with the speed and polite girls working there. The seafood platter was amazing,haddock was huge and we loved it so much we went 2 nights in a row!! A must if you visit Ilfracombe :)
