Description: The Top Chippy is a family business owned & run by Norman/Vicky and their son Aaron Green who are all local to the area. Being from Cornwall we try and use local produce as much as we possibly can. we try our best to save the planet by using only sustainable vegetable oil sourced from local companies we have got a number of vegetarian dishes on the menu or on the specials board in the shop we even cater for the smaller appetite Give us a try !! REMEMBER WE DON'T FRY FAST FOOD WE FRY GOOD QUALITY FOOD AS FAST AS WE CAN !!

Love that you can buy local fish there and take your own catches in to get battered too! Really friendly staff who love to chat, good service and the best chips I've ever had!

Friendly welcome, beautifully cooked and good value. Catch of the Day (often local pollack we were told) is excellent.

Five minutes before closing for the evening I was served with delicious freshly cooked haddock and crispy chips. Thank you - it was delicious!

We always visit this chip shop every time we come to Cornwall and we have found it to be the best one in the area! I must say that we have never been disappointed and neither have any of our friends (as we recommend it to anyone going anywhere near!) so we were surprised to see the earlier review from Jon K! The fish is locally sourced - none of your frozen imported stuff - and everything is freshly cooked! We have certainly never found portion size to be a problem. The owners are very friendly and accomodating, for example, although they don't sell mugs of tea, they are happy for you to buy one from next door & bring it in to sit at their tables and enjoy your meal! On the whole its a great little shop in a lovely unspoilt little harbour village. 5 stars from us.
