Okay, it's a holiday setting, and prices are rising nationally, but really! Portion of chips in a small tray was £2.30. Cod and chips in same size tray with fewer chips was £8.00. Not the best chips I've ever had for sure. Won't see me...again.More

Batter on fish was thick and almost chewy, and really dark, the fish inside was tasty though, think the oil needed changing as chips were similar colour and texture, also battered mushrooms we ordered, say battered on the menu, but were breaded mushrooms, slightly disappointing!

This used to be the best fish & chips by far in Appledore. Always had them at least once during our holidays over the last 8 years. This time we found the food to be poor. Chips were too crispy which made them full of...fat. Not sure if the oil needed changing or over cooked. Batter on the fish and sausage hard and over cooked and oily. Not sure if it has changed hands but I would avoid. Will go elsewhere in future.More

Really good fish and chips, lovely friendly staff that gave our dog a free sausage. I'm dead fussy about fish and chips, but these are really very good indeed. So good we had them twice during our week's stay in the area.

Stopped here to get some fish and chips. It's a very small chippy, so everyone was queuing outside. Food was pretty much cooked to order. Service could do with being a bit more welcoming. Fish was nice and not overly battered. Chips were hot but...could have been cooked a bit longer as they were rather pale.More

Stopped here on our first night in Appledore as didn't fancy cooking and had the most amazing fish and chips with perfect light crispy batter. A great little takeaway with lovely friendly service.
