Superb fish and chips, decent sized cod with lovely crisp batter and the chips were perfect. Good value at £6.50. Colour of the food suggests the cooking oil was fresh and had not been over used.

My wife and I got a takeaway fish supper from here last week and was very disappointed with the quality. The batter on the fish was very thick and overcooked to the point where we were cracking it rather than cutting into it, we left...More

Honestly preferred this to Rick Stein's. Amazing food, friendly staff, and dog friendly. I can genuinely say this place served the best cod and chips I've ever had. Me and my boyfriend will probably return to Tintagel just for the food.

We both enjoyed some beautifully cooked cod and chips from this immaculately clean and popular takeaway.

Greasy fish, black soggy chips and the the curry sauce was just yellow/orange water... seems to be the cheapest produce avaliable for maximum profit. Such a shame as I have been visiting Tintagel for years.

Quite frankly the best fish and chips I've ever had!! We had cod bites and chips as planned to go for dinner later (never happened as we were so full and satisfied!). Batter was crisp and delicious, fish soft and flavour some, chips just perfect....More

Came in on a Friday evening for Fish and Chips. Had a 20 min wait for food as they were so busy, but it was worth the wait. The large fish was as described and freshly cooked to order. Chips were fresh and well cooked....More
