Best gluten free fish and chips i've had since being diagnosed as coeliac. Nothing is too much trouble, I even had a portion of GF onion rings. They understand cross contamination and the issues coeliacs have. It's such a treat. Thankyou you deserve 10 stars.

We often visit the Gem, Fish is always excellent chips too. Staff Always very friendly and welcoming, the place is nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Prices are very good value for money.

I think these are the best fish and chips in Falmouth. I like to eat in the restaurant as it stops them going soggy on the way home. We have always found the staff exceptionally friendly and are regular customers there. Good value for money.
