I popped in here as I was passing it was really busy now I know why the fish was fluffy and the battery was lovely the chips were soft as sometimes you get hard chips these were spot on. Had the curry sauce (mild) beautiful just right would highly recommend a visit well worth the price

It's right on the main street and whilst it isn't anonymous it doesn't stand out particularly, however when you bite into the food you soon discover why this plaice (pun intended) is popular. There is seating of a sort, although outside irritatingly, all the smokers gather and waft their fumes over everything. Better to eat inside or take to the... More

We craved a bag of great chips by the sea and that is exactly what we got! I read the previous reviews and we set off looking for Flounders. The chips were perfect. If you are in Newquay don't go anywhere else for your bag of chips with lashings of salt and vinegar.

Stumbled across this when we were in Newquay earlier this year and made sure we ate from there again on our recent visit. Excellent quality, food is freshly cooked per order and very plentiful. Predominantly a take-away not a sit-down restaurant but with some seating inside and a couple of benches outside if you want to eat your fish&chips there... More

quite good fish & chips, very large portion (even the regular one), quick service. Take your food away and eat it at the park, looking at the bay

Manager need to come out of retirement! We eat here frequently and its always lovely but on our visit to today, the staff where rude throwing the food into the bag and the chips are the worst I've ever had. They looked and tasted hard as though they had been re-fried twice. The fish was large and tasted fresh, melt... More

COD was huge! Had to wait a few minutes as it was all cooked fresh. Got a fish bite and chips too, this was huge!! Humongous portions! Spicy curry sauce was great, and the girls behind the counter was lovely.
