We were in the area around dinner time and were looking for fish n chips. Took us a bit to find it but we managed. Took others advice and split a two piece order and it's a good thing too! No way could we have eaten a whole two piece each. Generous portions and awesome food. A LIGHT... read more

We have been to Ye Old English Fish and Chips a number of times and it has always been a good experience. Our son and wife returned from a two year stay in England about eight years ago so when they came to visit we went there for them to become re-acquainted with authentic English fish and chips. They enjoyed... More

We were looking for a fish & chip place in downtown Cornwall, so we asked our GPS to find us a restaurant with seafood. Up popped "Ye Olde English Fish & Chip" Restaurant, and we headed right over there. From the outside, this little restaurant looks rather poor, but inside it was quite nice. We ordered the Halibut 2 Pieces... More

I have been going there for years. Fish and chips do not get better than this! Love the location, love the simplicity of the place, love how they serve you the food. The staff is so nice and I love the food!! Reasonably priced too!

This restaurant serves some of the best fish and chips in Cornwall.... the only place so far that beats it, is a small casse croute in Perce in the Gaspe (the fish had been caught that morning)

We have been to this restaurant often and have never been disappointed. Our last visit was on a Saturday when the seafood special was on the menu. We had an order of onion rings and the special which was a choice of fried clam strips, lobster soup or clam chowder and one piece each of haddock, cod and halibut and... More

My parents had a fish and chip shop and two of my Dad's uncles also had fish and chip shops. I have also had fish and chips in the Dolphin Café which is located on the fish docks in Peterhead, Scotland. The Dolphin Café is considered to serve the best fish and chips in the UK. So, with my background,... More

Yes, it's a fish-and-chips place, but it is really nice to have nice fresh fish that is HAND-battered and cooked while you wait. Often in the area, the fish is over fried until there is no flavor or moistness left - not here... the fish is cooked perfectly. The homemade tartar sauce makes the flavors pop perfectly. An added bonus... More

This was our first visit to Ye Olde English Fish & Chip since it re-opened after being partially demolished by some moron driving drunk last fall. I'm happy to say that the fish and chips are still yummy, and the wait-staff still pleasant! I had my usual two-piece halibut and chips and was not disappointed. They do a nice job... More
