Visited Penzance and stopped for food at this fish and chip shop, fish was absolutely beautiful and chips were freshly cooked, nice and hot. Staff were very friendly I can definitely recommend.

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!

This is really a take-away but had a couple of stalls inside. I had the home made fish cake with mushy peas and sat on a stall facing the wall. It was an ideal quick lunch and the home made fish cake was big and...More
