You can't visit Cornwall without eating fish & chips. In this place, they are prepared on the spot, so they are really fresh. Waiting in the queue for my portion, the locals informed me that this shop never misses. Great food at a great price....More

If battered fish isn't always your favourite than try this. Large piece of fresh cod dipped in peppered flour, fried and served with a big wedge of lemon. Without exaggerations, sat outside the shop in the sunshine it was as good as we've ever had!
