Why would you risk it? It's crazy that anyone would eat here. Unless you fancy getting ill. Best to be avoided.

Just picked up a supposed cod and chips from here and am positive that I have been given a cheaper white fish rather than cod. The taste is totally different and will not be returning.

Was in Torquay for family things and paid another visit to Grandad Nic's for some fish and chips. Freshly cooked and short wait, just like the previous visit. Consistency and quality seem to be at the forefront. Will be visiting again on my next trip

Grandad Nicols is now open and serving the residents and guest of torquay with freshly cooked " old fashioned fish and chips" the traditional way. We serve only the highest graded fish from the clean waters of iceland and local specials from brixham fish market, and home made specials like Haddock & Parsly fish cakes and our famous yorkshire fish cakes. Due to a number of people thinking we have stale or old oil we have made the decision to change the type of oil we fry in we used to use beef dripping but we have had some comments saying that the oil was stale old etc. So we have now change to vegetable oil which is more commonly found in the fish and chip shops and most people are accustomed to
