From Cumbria to Coventry we've tried the lot ... none comes close to this little chippy.

We were in Porthleven for a week and were determined to try the chippy after such great reviews.

During the restricted opening times in the winter the chippy closes at 9.00 but this is not a problem if you arrive even as late as 8.55pm.

We were still offered freshly cooked cod in a thin and crispy batter, and sublime chips, despite it being nearly time to close.

The cod and chips were very much cheaper than we pay here in the Midlands, and I like that they came in a box.

Unfortunately as we were trying several other local eateries we ran out of time for a second visit.

A pity as the quality of the food and service is second to none.

We'll be back - definitely

This is now my fourth visit to The Top Chippy and once again it is perfect.Firmly my favorite fish and chip shop in Cornwall. It's a must try for any fish and chip lover. Crispy batter, fresh fish and perfect chips. My dog was given a free sausage and would give an excellent rating too but he can't type (because of the paws). Will be back again and again!

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.
