tables & chairs are provided inside&outside takeaway for customers to use that have perchased food from the chippy at no extra cost, we are a takeaway & do not have restaurant fascilities so we do not provide plates, knives&forks etc. There is a sign displayed inside shop providing this information.

“Grumpy staff. Just about ok food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Hi. Went just as they were closing which may be the problem. Fish very very greasy. Served in polystyrene trays not traditional paper as previous reviewer said. Tried to make small talk no response. Chips were ok but the place directly opposite are much better. We were disappointed after reading these reviews.

The manager I think was extremely grumpy and yes I was the last customer but manners should not stop.

Staff are always polite & helpful, if you think so highly of another establishment stick with them.

“Best fish & chips in Cornwall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have lived in St Austell for 3 years, We have tried all the fish & chip shops here, They are all very poor, So we travel the 14 miles to Newquay to the chippy every time we want fish & chips. We have never been disappointed, they are always freshly cooked and taste marvelous. We would recommend the chippy to everyone, we run a B&B and tell all our guests if they want the best go to the chippy

So nice to find a fish and chip shop still working to the highest standards. Great ingredients, cooked with care, always fantastic. Perfect chips every time - and friendly staff!

“Highest quality fish & chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

How I remember fish and chips tasting in Cornwall as a child. Fresh fish with crunchy batter, always perfectly cooked chips and great mushy peas. Family run in the traditional way, spotlessly clean, very friendly staff, we don't go anywhere else.
