We had our portion of fish and chips today.....and once again were not disappointed.

We had no idea when we first visited this fish bar that there had been a review, we chose Herbies because we liked what we saw.

Chips are great, the fish-no bones, batter...hmmmm! And this was all piping hot.

After reading some negative reviews from recent postings, we did look at other fish bars, but we are glad.we stuck to what we knew to be good...which is fresh fish, cooked to order.

Visited Lyme Regis and Herbies for the first time recently, I was oblivious to the write up in the Times. Excellent fish and chips for a fiver, was more than happy to wait a few minutes for it to come out freshly cooked. Batter was light and airy, the cod juicy and perfectly cooked. The chips are OK (mine were not frozen) but the fish steals the show. I'll go back again.

I've been going back to Herbies for years now as I've never tasted a better crispy delicious batter like the one they make. Crispy on the outside and juicy succulent freshly caught fish on the inside.
Don't believe the other reviews about using frozen, I know for a fact they use fresh fish and you taste the difference. Go and try it out for yourself-it's worth going to Lyme Regis for :-)

Terrible . Can't believe the reviews ... They do "FROZEN" chips and the peas taste like they're out of a tin ... The fish batter was hard and very greasy ...Next door looked delicious ...

Well WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. I came down in April and sought out Herbies as it had such high accolade in the "Times" The fish and chips then were second to none. So we returned for a family holiday with our children and son and daughter in law.... full of praise for the meal thet were about to taste. We all had haddock and chips....the fish was delicious but the batter was greasy and chips tasted like re-heats.....Not nice....and a big difference to our previous tasty meal. Come on boys don't live off a good recommendation in the Times and not come up with the goods ....every time! If you want really good chips try Frydays at Seaton Mmmmm!
