And they let dogs in - result. The cod was beautifully cooked in the lightest of crispy batter. The chips were fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Haven't had nicer fish and chips since Whitby.

After a fab day out at a local attraction my fiance and our little Pixie popped into Ilfracombe to gawp at the moster Verity, have a look at the sea and grab a cheap supper.

We chose this establishment as we had grabbed a quick cone of chips from here before and remembered them being nice, I saw a sign that said no skin, no bones, no waste (we chose haddock as we like to eat responsibly sourced fish and not realizing it was on the cod only!)
The haddock tail was loaded with sharp bones, the curry sauce was watered down or Home made from chicken gravy and tikka mix.

The service was friendly but it was expensive for what we had, even by a sea side standard (we live in Devon).. The chips were soggy as was the batter, Pixie enjoyed her sausage though.

We paid and didn't complain as we were hungry and tired and it was ok.

Won't go there again but the waitress was friendly and service quick.

Good value, freshly cooked cod and chips washed down with a nice cuppa. Not much more to say, really! excellent food, nice staff, right in the centre of Ilfracombe.

Lovely fish and chips. We had take-away cod and chips, but there is a restaurant to eat in if you wish. All the staff were very friendly and service was quick, even though there was a large group ordering at the same time as us. The portion sizes were just right and the cod was beautifully cooked. They weren't greasy either.

There is a sign outside of the shop that says, no skin no bones no waste! They seem to forget to mention no fish in the batter! We had large cod and all that can be said is they must have forgotten the fish when they battered it. I'm not a big eater but when I order fish & chips I would expect to see the fish with the chips, talking of which the chips were bland and tasteless.
