Whenever we visit Pendeen we always have at least one meal a week at Lil's, my son would probably eat there every day! . The food is lovely and fresh and the service is always friendly.

Have had a meal from Lil's just about every week since she and Terry have been open. Tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed

Good wholesome food with friendly service. A large range of takeaway and eat-in food. Fish and chips being the best

Fabulous fish! We had cod, chips and curry twice on visit to Pendeen. Check the opening hours, only open 2 hours in the evening.

When to this chip shop twice whilst on holiday, I'd go every week if I lived closer but 370mile drive is a little to far. The fish was lovely & fresh, the first time we went the chips were to die for but the second time they was a little pale, but still good. Cooked it the old fanshioned way... More

The title says it all. The cod was freshly fried, and its batter coating was lovely and crisp. The chips were very disappointing, because they were limp and pale. I ate the fish and threw away most of the chips.

We always eat Lil's fish and chips when we are down in Pendeen. As others have said, amazing quality and value as well as being a lovely lady. Not open very late but late enough to save me cooking an evening meal once a week! Breakfast baps are also huge and you get to meet some of the village characters... More

Lil serves very fresh fish and chips at very reasonable prices. Service with a smile too. Only opens for a short time in the evening but well worth checking out the opening times and treating yourself .
