Bugger to park but enjoyed it as am a local and my son likes the cheeseburgers.its tucked away up a side street but worth popping in as most of the takeaways are too expensive. .

Found Rock n sole on trip advisor whilst visiting dawlish. Fish n chips were simply awesome. Nice touch with a squeeze of lemon, chips crispy and fluffy inside. Best in Dawlish.

Small shop, easy to miss, with limited parking outside. Free 1 hour car park can be found around the corner however. Absolutely fantastic food and service. Chips were tasty, aswell as the haddock. Will try and visit again!

Odd reviews about unbattered fish should be ignored! Good fish n chips, fish well battered and cooked, chips crispy and great portions. Worth a takeaway!

We were trying to do the 'Dawlish Ale Trail' when we found this place, after the first pub being closed for about four years, we did three and turned the corner to find this fish and chip shop, the owner was very friendly although they were about to close cooked us fresh fish and chips which were out of this...
