“Best Fish and Chips in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Brilliant fish and chips freshly cooked and proper potatoes, not frozen.
Service very good.
You may have to be patient as holiday times it can be very busy, but well worth the wait :)

“Fab Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Visited bank holiday Monday, the surroundings are great for families with small children. The fish and chips were great, thin layer of crispy batter and crispy, traditional chips, a good sized portion, all condiments on the table including tartare sauce. Conditions clean and staff friendly

“Line out the door for fresh fish and chips”

Yum!! This place is amazing! The fish is so fresh and the line was out the door. The staff were well organised. A great place for fish and chips in this cute sea side town.

“The best fish and chips ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Why mun daughter and I visited here in April. Family environment, nice location, right by the sea.But I can honestly say that even if none of that had existed the fish was lightly battered, beautiful cod and very tasty chips, quite honestly the best fish and chips I've ever eaten.

“Freshly cooked to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

We were excited and looking forward to our fish and chips by the sea but we have been to a couple of different chippies in Ilfracombe before and not been impressed! The girls in Lynbay were kind and helpful, cooked our food while we waited and it was lovely. Freshly fried fish and proper potato chips (not frozen!) Good value and they even split a portion of chips onto two trays for the kids. Good service, the restaurant looked nice too. My advice is to walk round off of the front and find Lynbay. It's definitely worth it. You'll get to see the impressive statue too.
