The Fish Shed, Topsham, Devon
Owned by a former scallop diver, The Fish Shed in Topsham is highly regarded as one of the best Fish and Chip and wet fishmongers shops in the country.
If shopping at Darts Farm in Topsham makes you hungry, wander over to the Fish Shed for a plate of fish and chips. The seating is outdoors with a few nautically decked wooden tables and old buoys hanging from the rafters. If it’s a wet day, retreat to your car to eat them. It’s a true British summer holiday tradition.The Foodie Travel Guide
