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.

Holy of holies this place is worth every calorie. Thank you. My son keeps asking to go again and again. He won't shut up. He's 14. So, it passed a teenage test of delicious.

We were happy to find this spot for a quick and not-too-expensive family meal. It also allowed us to walk in a residential area rather than only seeing the shopping area of the city. Friendly staff and great fish and chips, thanks!

I visit Ireland at least once every year for about 2 weeks. Lennox's is always my dinner on my first night. There's just something about it you'll end up craving. You get a great bang for your buck, and the food has been consistent over the 20 years I've been going. I won't recommend it if you're a health-fanatic, but... More

Lennox's is quite simply the best chipper in Cork. The rest do not come close. I have been eating here regularly from my whole life and it is always consistently good.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I went there for the first time. I recommend the Jacky Lennox Double Burger. It's fast food but delicious, not expensive at all and so so fresh! The stuff is friendly and professional. This restaurant is full of history and you can feel it.
