Had some fantastic scampi and chips. The fish was nice and the chips (pub style) were very crispy and enjoyable. Would recommend over the other options in Westward Ho!

There was no atmosphere it's just a seafront takeaway; I had to wait over twenty minutes for the fish to be cooked (obviouly from frozen); the batter was thin and crispy but very greasy/oily with soggy batter on the inside; the chips were 50/50 very good/very bad. One hour after eating this meal I had to rush to the toilet and spent some ten minutes emptying my bowels, my wife who must have a stronger stomach than me followed some 30 minutes later with the same result, whether or not it was the fish or the chips or a combination of both I don't know. We deffo will NOT GO THERE AGAIN. My order number was 53 @ 14:12pm, till 1.

Its a nice fish and chips shop that isn’t too busy. Though I have a few complaints about the food, the chips were salted way too much and we barely got any ketchup with the Chips and Hotdog. Overall I would return so it definitely doesn’t deserve below a 4 star.

Best chips I've had in a long, long time. Cooked to order and friendly service. Good curry sauce too. We come to Westward Ho every couple of months so I'm delighted to discover this excellent chippy.
