Haven't been to the London Fryer for years! Just had a cod, no chips. It was pretty good though the batter was slightly greasy. Good flavour on the fish though!

Bought chips here to accompany food we had cooked, and they were very good quality, the staff were really friendly, atmosphere was good....had we been staying in Paignton we would have dined in here as they offered varied portion sizes for all, plus the prices were very reasonable.

Went to get some fish and chips. On Saturday around 6 and was greeted to lovely staff and Haddock was lovely and tender. Batter was nice and light. The fish fell apart, cooked beautifully. Chips were lovely as well. Overall brilliant. Shall be visiting again
