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.

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

The fish was great (we had cod and haddock) but the chips were terrible, very soggy. Friendly service though.

Visited at lunch time, they were very busy but only had to wait about five minutes for my fish and chips to be cooked fresh to order. Excellent piece of fish.
