We moved to Tavistock 4 months ago and we have not tried any other chippy as there is nothing to fault with this one. The first time we visited we chose the large chips and regular cod, not realising large really did mean large chips. We now get regular fish and chips every Friday. We have tried the pies and...

Very generous portions, good specials and kids meals, friendly staff, quick service and price. The fish was very good , batter was perfect no oil inside the batter and the fish/batter was not soggy. I will definitely visit again, especially to eat in.

Stopped here for some sausage and chips. Tasty sausage, but soggy batter. Chips were ok, but nothing special. Great to have it wrapped in newspaper, and not in a box. Extremely friendly guy that was serving and cooking.

We visited TJ's on 27th October, the fish was fresh and well cooked with just the right amount of batter. The portion for a medium size cod and chips was generous but this was reflected in the amount meal cost. Staff were friendly, but thought that playing top trumps whilst serving lacked a little professionalism. Tasty meal but a little... More

Having decided to eat in rather than taking fish n chips home, we were slightly disappointed to find that only the extra large cod was freshly cooked, with the smaller pieces of fish being served from the hot box. The freshly cooked fish turned out to be absolutely HUGE but very nice, while the batter was extremely light although rather... More

Quite like this chip shop but when we called in today for a latish snack lunch we were shocked at how much the eat in meal was compared to the takeaway. I wouldn't want to put anyone off but just check out the cost of the alternatives.
