Every time we go to Cornwall we end the week with a visit to port and starboard. The food is delicious and is clearly much better than we can get in our home city. We will be back.

Called in after work. The establishment had been busy, however the service is great. Minimal waiting time, freshly cooked. The only downside was the time it took me to drive home with that unbeatable smell in my car. Many thanks from all of my family.

Incredible fish and chips - cod is the best! Regular visitors here and we have all never tasted any better. The service is incredible and it is perfectly clean. Always very busy too!

We had cod & chips in the Port & Starboard at lunchtime. It was a very generous helping with tasty chips & cod in a lovely crisp light batter. The service was excellent, friendly staff & clean tables. Other dishes are available if you don't want fish. Would highly recommend.

They cook in Beef dripping which is what gives the delicious taste to the fish and chips, but not suitable for the vegetarian in our... More

Going on the great reviews myself and a group of friends choose to get a take away here on Friday night whilst camping nearby, checking first on the website that they cater for gluten free as I have coeliac disease! When ordering I asked for gluten free cod and chips only to be told they couldn't do them because they... More

We have been down from Aberdeen and glad we visited as it was the best chippy meal for a long time. If we are down this way again we will be sure to visit
