Ellacombe is a popular residential area with families due to the proximity of several junior and senior schools and the areas of Plainmoor and Torquay town centre being only a relatively short walking distance. The densely populated area provides a huge customer basis for this already popular Fish & Chip Takeaway.

This well equipped business fronts Princes Road which leads up from Torquay’s town centre and has the benefit of parking immediately in front of the premises. The menu offers a range of food including the traditional fish and chips alongside other choices such as burgers, sausages, pies and a children’s menu. Christie’s benefits from year round trade and has a strong local following. However the current owners have chosen to reduce the trading hours to suit themselves. This therefore provides the next operator with terrific scope to further increase the trade by opening lunchtimes and extending the evening trade period. The introduction of a delivery service would also hugely benefit the business.
