I have holidayed in Newquay every year since 2013 and visited Flounders each time. This year was very disappointing. They used to serve on proper plates and cutlery, but now serve in tiny trays and have no cutlery other than ridiculously small chip forks, only suitable for chips. It is near impossible to eat your fish without a proper knife... More

I love Flounders! Great fish and chip shop - very fresh and a good choice! Parking is a bit difficult outside, just something to bear in mind. Food is great though.

I think this is the best piece of fish in town. The fish is big always cooked to order, with large moist flakes of cod. I live here and can't fault the service.

This is one of the good fish and chips places in town. Truscott's is very good too. People seem to say that Truscott's is better, but I liked both a lot. I think Flounders has a larger menu.

Delicious fish&chips. Not the best I've had, but one of the best. Very slow though! Some of the slowest fast food I've ever experienced! Still worth the wait though. 😋

The crispiest and most delicious chips ever, and fresh cod in a light crispy batter, cooked to perfection and served by the friendliest of staff. Perfect after a day at the beach :-) Highly recommended.
