“Cotswolds to Cornwall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

On a trip to Cornwall to visit my parents in near by Leedstown, it was a very stormy day so I took the children to Porthlevan where the massive waves crash over the lighthouse.

After nearly catching hypothermia, everyone demanded chips!! Fortunately we found the best chip shop in Cornwall. Lovely food and great value.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

A fantastic fish and chip shop that cannot be beaten. Crispy batter on the fish and not at all greasy, best place to eat them is sat down by the harbour...perfect!

Me and my husband came for fish and chips from the reviews and weren't disappointed! Great quality haddock, good chips and a decent price. Batter was lovely and crisp and not soggy

“Best Fish and chips ever !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I love this fish and chip shop it must be the best fish and chip shop I have ever been to. It is fresh local produce and cooked to order which is the best way! Although it is made to order you don't queue like you do at Rolands and that is a joke, not necessarily because Rolands is better but the shop I think is smaller. But the fish and chips here are really nice and the staff are really friendly people really really nice. When I visit my parents I always get fish and chips when I visit, fantastic overall!
