A trip to the stunning English Riviera would not be complete without sampling some of the fantastic fryers the local area has to offer. South Devon, with its rich fishing heritage and miles of gorgeous coastline, is the perfect place for some classic fish and chips. Whether its a quick takeaway to enjoy on the beach or a sit-down meal with all the trimmings, this quintessentially British meal can be enjoyed anywhere, by anyone!

Galmpton Touring Park is situated between Paignton and Brixham, in the heart of South Devon and overlooking the beautiful River Dart. We were spoilt for choice on this one, but we’ve managed to narrow it down to our top 5 favourite local spots for delicious fresh fish and crunchy chips with plenty of salt and vinegar!

Rockfish, Brixham

With the original restaurant opening in nearby Dartmouth, this popular restaurant perked the tastebuds of locals and holiday-maker’s alike and soon opened more chains on other seafronts across the region, including our very own Brixham. Proudly serving local and sustainable seafood, Rockfish catch their own and supplement this with fresh selections from the Brixham market. Available to eat in and take out and just a short drive or bus ride away from the park, Rockfish is one not to be missed.

Krispies, Exmouth

Winner of the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award 2019, Krispies certainly has a lot to brag about. Located in the seaside resort of Exmouth, Krispies is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat after your day out exploring the local town. We highly recommend the battered chips and the homemade mushy peas, a speciality of Krispies. Or, if you’re looking for something a little healthier, ask for your fish to be grilled.

Dedicated to sustainability, the seafood is chosen from the local market and caught by local fisherman.
