Simply the best fish and chips I’ve had in long time, ( in fact since last visited) and delivered!!! Hot, crisp and lightly battered moist fish and delivered on time. As John Ruskin Said “ quality is rarely the result of an accident but that...of conscious effort” well these guys put in the effort ! Thanks guys. Puts all others to shame with their undercooked chips greasy fish and thick batter smothering the fish. Eat in take out or delivered you must visit. 👍👍👍👍👍More
Amazing Gluten Free fish and chips!! During a recent trip to Cornwall we wanted to get takeaway fish and chips! Found Gems online and they were so lovely and friendly on the phone! The delivery was super prompt and the food was divine! Such a...great gluten free fish and chips option! If I ever go back to Falmouth, I’ll be visiting again!More
I've just finished eating my takeaway halloumi fries and mozzarella sticks after been recommend them by a friend who tried them for the first time yesterday. I thought I'd come straight on here and leave while the taste is still fresh in my mouth.
I'm...a bit of a halloumi fiend, I buy it whenever I see it on a menu, But Gem's halloumi fries are amazing! I'm really trying hard to stop myself from going back and ordering a second helping.
And the mozzarella sticks are marvellous too. I'll admit it, I do occasionally go to that fast food chain with the yellow 'M' logo just for the mozzarella dippers. But no more after visiting Gem's. I'm definitely supporting local from now on.
And last but definitely not least, the staff are all lovely, very friendly and chatty.
Thank you, see you again soon (probably tomorrow) xoMore
Best cod n chips in Cornwall! Caters for kids, very reasonably priced, freshly cooked also offer local delivery. we ate ours on the main square benches just below quarry hill road. Friendly staff. My dad lives here and said best fish n chips he’s had...in Cornwall. Light fresh bubbly batter.More
First time ordering from Gem - last time we tried, we couldn't place an order as we left it too late and they were too busy - now we see why! By far, the best chippy in Falmouth.
We ordered delivery via Deliveroo and it...arrived exactly on time and piping hot. Quintessential English chippy, with proper good grub.More
We always have our fish and chips from here and we have them delivered . I spoke to a lady called Helen who went above and beyond with the service we received , what a lovely lovely lady. I would without hesitation recommend The Gem...to anyone. The best fish and chips around by far. The fish we had was absolutely beautiful and just fell apart , the chips were superb, well everything was superb. Thankyou so much Helen and Team. Cant wait till next week when we have them again.

We ordered online as this was the only chip shop near us who were open during lockdown. We didn't know what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was hot, the fish tasted fresh, the portion sizes were good and it came earlier...than we were expecting. Very nice fish and chips and we'll definitely be back for more.More
