The Best Fish and Chips

I eat here regularly with friends and have never been disappointed! The fish is always fresh and the fires are the best in Truro. PS: order the fries extra crispy and they will be the best you have ever eaten!

We had high hopes going to the Shillelagh House. Our friends raved about it and since our favourite go to place is only seasonal ( Masstown Market- Catch of the Bay), we decided to give this place a try. You order at the counter and then seat yourself in their dining room area. I ordered the 2pc fish and chips.... More

This is our favourite place for fish and chips in the Truro area. Fresh, well-cooked fish and wonky fresh hand-cut chips. They have expanded their menu options, but we always have fish and chips. Friendly casual service; order at the counter and it is brought to your table. Basic but good.

It is quite clear they have some very good fish n chips, maybe the best around. In the Truro area there is few places that serve good fish but I think this place is the best. A good size portion that will fill anyone up, a bit on the greasy side but not too bad and the taste makes up... More

We stopped here after a recommendation from our rafting guide. All four in our party had the fish and chips. Food was plentiful but was not anything special. Being a maritimer, I am used to much better fish and chips. That being said, everyone there were friendly and the prices were fair. I would not hesitate to give it another... More
