South Devon is one of the most desirable places to enjoy a family holiday in the UK. Like any good seaside destination, there are many brilliant fish and chip shops here. Such a vast choice of places to go can make it difficult to select your fish supper. Beverley Holidays have been situated in Paignton for over 65 years – so we’ve built up quite the knowledge of where to eat out in the area. Here, we share our pick of the best fish and chip shops in South Devon.
DJ’s Fish and Chips
We start our recommendations with the popular DJ’s Fish and Chips, which were included in the 50 Best Fish and Chip Shops in the UK by Fry Magazine. This is no small feat as only two South West-based chip shops managed to get a place on the list! The magazine is regarded as the leading publication for the fish and chip shop industry!
DJ’s is situated just a 10-minute walk from Beverley Holidays on Dartmouth Road. Their shop can get rather busy – especially in peak times – but thanks to their click and collect ability on their new mobile app, there’s no need to queue up to order!
Situated on Paignton Pier, this fish and chip shop really is a classic. It is the only traditional fish and chip shop and restaurant on the seafront and a perfect example of the British staple done right! Here, all the fish is caught nearby by a trawler they know by name, and the potatoes are also grown by a known farm.
They pride themselves on offering competitive prices whilst providing the best quality ingredients and customer service. Given their track record and reputation, we have to agree!
Squires has a restaurant and takeaway, so you can enjoy your fish and chips at your favourite part of the beach or dine in their 130 seat restaurant spanning two floors! They have built a fantastic reputation over their 50 years of services, and are regarded by many as one of the best fish and chip shops in South Devon!
Recently, their award-winning fish and chips received high praise from celebrity chef Rick Stein:
“I found their fish and chips great with very light batter covering a thick fillet of very fresh fish and the chips were thick and floury on the inside and beautifully crisp on the outside”.
Trawlers have a great reputation for their excellent fish and extensive menu. Aside from their fresh ,Atlantic-caught fish and chips, they also serve other takeaway favourites like kebabs, burgers, sausages, chicken wings, garlic bread and chicken nuggets.
This is an ideal place to go if your family can’t agree on one type of takeaway food to get for dinner. Trawlers are popular for their competitive prices, good portions and quality of food.
We couldn’t finish our recommendations without mentioning our fantastic on-site fish and chip shop, The Catch!
