We found this excellent fish restaurant on a cold November Thursday evening in a quiet Dartmouth. Delicious fish and chips, generous portions, friendly service. We washed down the meal with Bay's bottled beers. They do excellent burgers too.

Ate in the restaurant and had a cod meal. Cod was nicely cooked and the chips and peas were good. We ate a late lunch and despite what looked like a busy service the staff were friendly and efficient. It's not the cheapest chippy in the world but neither is it unreasonably priced for the location. It's certainly not as... More

Nice Fish & Chips. Good choice of other food too on the menu. Quick good service, food all good, cooked, well and hot. Reasonable cost too. ( Tip: Regular Fish & Chips is huge, you don't need to go large)

Food was great and service was excellent but it was quite expensive compared to some. Seating inside and out but we chose to takeaway and sit on the sea front (we had to pay extra for a box rather than it being wrapped in paper)

My husband and I and our four year old enjoyed a great fish supper here, eating in. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent plaice and chips, child sized cod and chips and fish cake of the day all served with salad sides. We also tried the salt and pepper squid which was very tasty. And the Bay's Brewery lager. Definitely will... More

my partner and I bought haddock and chips to eat out, then went and sat overlooking the river, I have to say that these were amongst the tastiest fish and chips I have evr had, in fact they were so good that I was attacked from behind by a seagull trying to steal them
