Disgusting frozen fish in batter. Poorly cooked. Shop bought frozen chips. All for the three of us and that came to £24!! Service was appallingly slow considering there was no one else here (that should have been a sign!). Not recommended!

£24 for 3 lots of (oven cooked) fish and burnt chips. Staff talk to you like you aren't there then take ages. Obviously struggling to open the Iceland packaging. Would never come again.

Eventually found a spot to sit. After sitting for 15 minutes the waiter appeared as he had forgotten our order. After reminding him again we waited another 5... More

A day out in Paington we decided to have fish and chips for lunch as the day was gorgeous. Thinking it was not far from the fish market at Brixham we would get fresh local fish. Wrong! Frozen fish, oven chips which we had to wait for half an hour for and overpriced for what we received I would pay... More

We stopped here for lunch on Sunday, 4 adults & 2 children (aged 8). Have to say the food was awful. The children's meals were tiny, I had a chicken burger which was literally about 1cm thick with hardly any chicken in it, the chips were not good either. We were waiting quite a long time for the food &... More
