Great fish and chippy near the bay hotel… normally a long queue so just factor... that into your trip. Also do fun kids boxes, roast chicken options. All good tasted freshly cooked and warm so overall a good experience.read more

Very busy, 40 minutes wait for order but worth it. I had a large cod and chips.... The batter was crispy and the cod was perfect. The chips were crunchy on the outside and fluffy in the middle. Great fish and chips.read more

For a first timer to Woolacombe Fryer I thought the staff did great given the... circumstances and the virus situation in the region. Whilst there was a long queue to begin with that was partly down to other places not being open or being short staffed. Food was lovely and decently cooked. Mum and I enjoyed our supper overlooking the town and beach from a good vantage car park with the sun going down...lush.read more

Nice fish but the chips had been refried and you couldn’t taste any potato due... to them being full of grease. We might have made a mistake going at opening time rather than a little later when they’d have to be cooking fresh. Friendly service.read more

The fish and chips are very nice, crispy and cooked well not soggy and pale... chips.There is often a lengthy queue, but I guess that’s just part of it and it didn’t take too long.I don’t know if it’s a northern thing for me to expect but they don’t have bread rolls on the menu for a chip butty. They did provide them on request but it was not buttered bread so a bit dry.I find it quite crazy people complaining about portions particularly of chips. My partner and I shared a large fish and chips and were well stuffed.read more

Loved it every single time we’ve been here. Been coming to woolacombe for 15... years and this chip shop always makes it 10x better to sit on the balcony and chill, perfect sizes, completely reasonable price 10/10 probably better than the chip shop at home 😳Edit- only downside is the queue, but it’s the same everywhere in Woolacombe (2 hours waiting for nearby pizza, compared to maybe 20 minutes?) and we’ll worth itread more

Collected small cod at 17:05 on 9 Oct when I got home I found plenty of batter... and hardly any fish.I guess the answer is don’t get fish at 5 o clock when they open as it’s likely your fish will be left over from lunchtime and re heatedread more

Best fish and chips I’ve had in a long time. Had rather disappointing fish and... chips from Squires in Braunton a couple days ago. Woolcombe Fryer was way better. Crispy chips and batter, and the server actually asked how much salt and vinegar you wanted. Fast service too.read more

Really nice food on both occasions - the cod was light and flakey with crispy... batter, and the chips were nice too. My children enjoyed the chicken nuggets which looked like actual chicken and not grey mush that you sometimes find. The peas were OK, not as mushy as I like and I only got half a pot.read more
