They hate the public in this place and they have no problem showing it. If you are foreign and they can't hear what you say, they will either ignore you or repeat the question in a louder, more hostile manner. I witnessed this on several...occasions with foreign people and it is a shameful way to treat any paying customer, regardless of whether they're from Cork or not. They hate their jobs, show open contempt for the customers who keep them in those jobs and while the food may be good, standing there and watching them treat people like sh*t and then giving them your money will leave you with a bad taste. The place is best avoided. Plenty of other good chippers around Cork City.More

One of the best chippers in cork. There is a lot of staff so the service is quick regardless of queue. Their side orders are good and so is their chicken suppers. Their fish is nice but the batter can be a little heavy. You...can definitely get better fish in many chippers in cork. Their chips are nicest in cork and its not a greasy chipper if you know what I mean. Some chippers should come with a health warning but not Jackie Lennox. There are 2 bloody things that bug the hell out of me. First, some of the staff ( not all ) are scanty when it comes to the chips. Just because their thin and eat fruit don’t mean that I or any other customer for that matter do. When you order a supper, you expect it to be, well, a supper, but these staff barely fill the carton with chips. It’s not on folks, it’s just a potato. That’s all Secondly, I can’t justify how you can get a potato pie/ burger with a scoop of chips for less than 4 euro yet their chips cheese and curry/garlic is a scandalous 6 + euro. What now, is cheddar sold in bulk now more expensive than gold?? Or is curry sauce now up there with Chanel no. 5 as one of the most expensive liquids in the world?. A downright and absolutely robbery of the people. Yeah yeah, well don’t eat it Well yeah yeah, Don’t rip people off, it’s just a potato 🥔More

some legends are there for a reason and this is one of them. The burgers are massive and the staffs habit of throwing a few chips in (even if you didn't order them) are just one of the many reasons they are so sound. It...is pure Cork and pure comfort food.More

It's hard to fault Lennox's as rightfully among the best chippers in Cork. Sometimes the chips need an extra 30 seconds but the burgers, onion rings, chicken and everything else is great! Always love coming here even if there is a queue nowadays

Myself, my 2 boys and my mother called in here as it was recommended by my husband who used to frequent it when he was in college. We were down from limerick for the day and decided we’d give it a go. Have to say...the nicest fish and chips I think I’ve ever tasted!!!! My boys (aged 9 & 7) shared a portion and would happily have eaten more. I have eaten fish and chips before and felt greasy and bloated after, not with these! They were unbelievably tasty!!! The staff were very friendly and efficient. We spoke to Duncan who took the time to chat to us and show us around the kitchen, even gave the boys a chance to cut some chips! It was super clean and we can’t wait to go back!!! Highly recommend this place!More
