About Us

What makes us different?

Here at South 16

We don’t serve fast food...

…we serve quality food, as quickly as possible! Whether it’s cooking our fish fresh to order or blanching our chips for the perfect finish, the priority is always quality – of food and experience.

That focus on quality has won us recognition in recent years, with South 16 being named “Best takeaway in North Devon” at the North Devon Food & Drink Awards!

    Serving North Devon & Beyond...

    We understand that there is much more to being a fish and chip shop than simply serving fish and chips. We think that a chippy, to truly shine, should provide for local residents as well as Braunton’s wave of seasonal tourists.

    To show you just what we mean, this year, we’re launching a series of seasonal promotions and special offers designed to help you treat yourselves, your families and your friends whatever the weather!

    We want to reward our loyal regulars, please our Saturday shoppers and leave holiday makers with great memories of their time in Braunton. Read more about our latest promotions in our monthly blog.

    “I travel all the way from Ilfracombe to get my fish and chips. The service is always good. The cod is always cooked fresh to order, big portions and good value.”

    Andrew Strange Review

    “The most amazing fish and chips in the north of Devon. I used to love a rival shop [situated] just round the corner but they fade into insignificance compared to South 16!”
