    Very poor fish and chips

       

    Had fish and chips there were terrible, complained and they give me the next visit free. But they where just as bad. I would not go again. Great shame they used to be excellent.

    A Very Pleasurable Experience

       

    It is very rare to find such a pleasant environment for a Fish & Chip Shop especially as they serve the most wonderful Fish and Chips with good sized portions. I like the way that your Food is freshly made for you and is served piping hot. For a reasonable priced option it punch's well above its weight.. Will definitely be regular from now on.

    Disgusting

       

    The worst fish and chips I have ever tasted, ordered small cod with a cone of chips topped with mussy peas. Charged incorrectly, enough chips to feed the town heaven knows what the fish was before they coated it in their special rubber batter. Horrid.

    Tavy Chipy

       

    I went to the one in West Street last month and it was the best Fish and Chips I have ever had, the Batter was nice and crisp and the chips wernt soggy, also the portions of mushy peas were huge and I had free Chips being a pensioner.

    Bring back Jack & Jills

       

    Just had fish and chips from Tavi Friar and it was DISCUSTING! The fish was hard and chewy and the chips were tasteless and hard. My wife took the meal back to complain and returned with a fresh meal....( not ), the fish this time was just about edible but the chips were just the same as the first lot so i ended up with a half decent piece of fish for my tea. Since it has changed hands it has gone downhill. NEVER AGAIN.

    Absolutely flabagasted by the last review, I have been visiting this great Chippy at least once a week since the new owners took over at the end of last year. The enviroment and the quality of the Food has improved beyond recognition since the dark days of the faceless London owned chain who absolutely destroyed its previous reputation when it was Jack and Jills. The new owners and the staff are all very pleasant and genuinely seem to care about giving good service and food. Cant say I have tried the Chicken Burger or the Onion Rings, however I have eaten the cod and chips regularly and they have always been cooked to perfection. I find the mushy peas great too now that they prepare their own on the premises. I will continue to enjoy my regular visits here!

    Never again

       

    We have just had the most awful fish and chips (and chicken burgers) from here. The fish was very dry and chewy (I know, fish shouldn't be chewy), the chicken burger had a very tiny actual chicken burger, which you couldn't taste as there was so little of it (apparently the bread and onion was about the only thing you could taste), and the chips were very greasy and limp. The portion of onion rings were average, but only consisted of 4 of them! The mushy peas, which you would think can't be that different between places, were runny and watery and didn't taste like peas had been near the tub. There were 4 of us eating, 2 had the chicken burgers and 2 had cod and chips and all of us were of the same opinion. Even the 16 year old couldn't eat the meal and he usually eats anything. We decided to come here as TJ's (the other fish and chip shop in town) was closed, but next time we definitely won't bother. I have had to apologies to friends for picking them up such and awful meal.

    The Tavistock

       

    A large fish and chip shop and restaurant in Tavistock, the aptly titled ‘The Tavistock’ offers a lovely range of reasonably priced food. The West Street chippy also offers take away which is served hot enough to enjoy when you arrive back to your home or featured destination. As a restaurant you can also enjoy healthy sized portions in clean and friendly surroundings.
