“Fantastic Meals for 6 Before Heading Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Family of 6, 2 adults and 4 boys decided to call in here for dinner at 6pm before the long drive home back to Derbyshire. What a great choice. The staff were friendly and patient as we tried to choose from the great menu. Food ordered it arrived piping hit and very fresh. Steaming cod inside crispy batter, fresh, golden chips, thick dark gravy and lashings of salt and vinegar. We sat in the small restaurant and were looked after by attentive and friendly staff who kept the place spotless.
Well done to everyone. Give it a go and fuel up before heading home!

“Haddock to die for ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Em & her family have been serving up spectacular stuff from behind that counter for the past twenty years (or more) that we've been nipping in. Nothing tastes like Truscotts haddock, sitting by the sea summer, autumn or springtime. If you're having fish and chips you won't beat that batter. Proper job x

“Friendly chippy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Four of us had takeaways - two fish, one pasty, one fish cake, all with chips. Pasty was good. Homemade fish cake was very good but fish suppers were only ok. Staff were very efficient and friendly but the fish and chips were not as good as we were hoping for after reading all the reviews.

“Fish + chips to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

This is without a doubt one of the nicest chippys I have ever been to. The fish and chips are the best in Newquay. The fish is huge, fresh and the batter is really crispy. The chips are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. The staff are always polite and friendly. Its a little expensive but you get what you pay for. We visit every year whilst on holiday and are never dissappointed.
