Fantastic may seem like an overused word.....but it really is the only way to describe the food. In and out in five with line ups....last chip tasted as good as the first and the fish was as good as I have ever had.

We had seen this shop mentioned on a Cork travel video and decided to walk here from Kent train station. It was worth the long walk up the hill. We each ordered fish and chips and got huge portions of haddock and chips. It was excellent. Everything was so hot we had to wait a bit for it to cool,... More

I have tried a curry chip from here a couple of times. The chips are often undercooked and flavourless, as far as chips go. The pricing is also too high. Cork's small-minded village attitude of Lennox's being the "best chips in Cork" is keeping this place afloat. There are much better options elsewhere which I would suggest in place of... More

Great fish and chips served here, with am excellent curry sauce too. The only downsides were the peas (very hard) and that they don't accept card for payment. Still, the curry and cheese chips are well worth getting! Recommended though!

This fish & chips shop delivers high quality products. The haddock and garlic sauce was delicious. The portions were very big. We had 4 portions for 4 persons. Three portions would also have been enough. The girl who helped us was very nice and attentive.

Always the same old fish. Spartan portions. Hasn't moved with the times. There are much better alternatives around now.
