“The best chippy in Gorran Haven.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Well ... It is the only chippy in Gorran Haven - that said it is pretty good - but not brilliant. I have been lucky enough to eat at some fabulous chip shops and can say fairly confidently that this is not up with the very best. That said the food is cooked fresh and the fish is very tasty and well cooked. The batter is better than many, not too stodgy, but the best batters are often either beer based and have a great taste and texture or a tempura style and are light and easy to eat. The main gripe would be the portion sizes - they are on the small side and the prices are on the high side - you do not get good value for money here. I was disappointed with the scampi, I was (naively) hoping for locally caught produce, and instead got a deep fried supermarket product. My advice to the owners would be to up your portion size a little, deal in local produce where you can and split your menu into daytime products for the beach (cheap and cheerful) and evening products for take away (local, good quality).

“Good fish and chips, fantastic setting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We have been staying in the area a short walk from the beach, we decided to walk down in the evening for fish and chips, this place is virtually on the beach, the staff are pleasant and the food perfectly fine, freshly cooked and not too greasy. The real gem for this place is sitting on the jetty to eat them on the most perfect summer evening, watching the local rowing team, people still jumping off the jetty and swimming..quite a lovely place.

“Best chippie in Gorran Haven :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Top quality and superb service. What better than to buy delicious fish and chips and eat them on the Lime Kiln overlooking Gorran Haven beach.

“Yummy Yummy Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Fish and Chips and the sausages are the best - especially when eaten on the beach. Perfect after a day on the beach or a walk around the coast path.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Freshly cooked to order, these chips were great. Just what we needed after a day on the beach! Make sure you have a large portion if you're hungry or have a bigger appetite. A perfect opportunity to try out some of the local fish. A little pricey but worth it.
