“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We've been here many times over the years but this time we had the Extra Large Haddock (x2), one portion of small chips and one portion of Mushy peas. Cost £14,10.
The fish was very dry and much smaller than it had been before and the Mushy peas were more liquid than peas...........
Shame.
Not as good as it has been

“Proper fish & Chips! Anzum!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

You may have to queue as the food is usually freshly cooked to order buy by heck its good. Free car parking right outside and only 5 minutes drive to Charlestown historical harbour, meaning you can eat whilst looking at the sea. It can't get much better.

“Brilliant chippy :)”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

SInce moving to this side of town a decade ago we have used the Holmbush Fishbar as one of our local takeouts. The staff are always friendly and the food is good quality and good prices. There may be queue's each Friday/Saturday but it is well worth the wait. The food is always hot and they never over do the batter or condiments. If you are looking for a nice local chippy try here, its wonderful! :)

“Tasty fish and crispy chips”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Decided on the spur of the moment to have fish and chips for dinner. Holmbush was the first chip shop we came too. It was busy. The staff were friendly and we were served quickly. Our fish had to be fried while we waited . This didn't take too long though. When we got home the fish was still crispy as were the chips. The fish was perfectly cooked . White and flaky really tasty. The chips were a golden brown and fluffy inside. A real treat. Would use again definitely.

“Best fish and Chips!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Our family have bought fish and chips from this lovely fish and chip shop for the past two years.
The staff are always very helpful and cheerful and the fish and chips are soooo lovely.
In fact the pies are great as well! Try the cod or haddock which tastes great.
You can also pre order which cuts down on the waiting time as it is so popular it can get very busy.
