Had medical appointment in Truro, based on reviews thought we would try Willies. Very disappointed, we both had Fish & Chips, plate contained about 12 chips each, fish was not cooked, when batter was removed fish was soggy and uncooked. Not a good experience, will not be back.

We were in a group of 12 and had quite a few different orders which took time in the kitchen. The staff brought out the kids meals first, and always popped... More

Had late lunch here. Probably wouldn't make it a regular stop. Food was skimpy and very pricey. 14$ for just a double burger? Pulled wrap was good. Could have used more fries. Potatoes were funky. Had a dried coating on the outside from microwave.

Pretty sure there is curry in their recipe. That may sound strange to some people but I must say I am a huge fan. Have ordered a few different meals here, burgers steak, etc. and the food is always good. The wait time here can sometimes be pretty long. Waited over an hour one time with just the wife and...

Visiting my brother in Truro, we opted to dine out and he suggested this place. We were pleasantly surprised by the venue and the varied menu. I opted for the Classic Burger and my wife for the pan-fried Haddock. Both were well prepared and served hot and delicious. There are a great many other things on the menu and an... More

We had the Fish n Chip special and it was very good and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend and have had the same order several times.

Food was very good, service was great, lots of room available for larger groups. Price was a bit high to make it a regular lunch stop
