The fish is really loely but the chips are rather average, The people giving the service are what they might like to think of as 'zanny' but it makes me uncomfortable

Really good fish and chips and very friendly staff. Perfect. A take away fish & chip shop with an upstairs cafe and view of the harbour.

Okay, so it's a fish and chip bar and we had takeaway! But, as fish and chips goes, these were really good. Good choice of fish and plenty for others to choose from - chicken portions, pies, suet puddings, sausages, and the usual peas, curry and gravy. As take-aways go, happy to give this 10/10.

Balancing Eel best Cod and Chips in St Ives! Love it!
