Always loved Lil's chippy. Food is plentiful and great value for money in comparison to other chip shops in the surrounding areas. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Went once as we were staying down the road in a lovely cottage, fish was fine chips shiny with oil, not the best. Ok if you can't be bothered with anything else but worth trying the other pubs, or pop along to Sennen where there is a lovely cafe.

We had to queue but well worth the wait -for fresh fish and chips (definitely not frozen) and the price was reasonable too.

Really great value too and also picked up some huge flapjacks for a... More

We so look forward to our trips to Cornwall ... Not least because we can have fish and chips at Lils. This establishment is second to none ... It's better than you can imagine ... Cooked to order, great quality and just gorgeous. Grab your 'chippy tea' and take a short drive and eat them while you watch the sun... More

Very busy at opening time with locals queueing for their favourite take away! Not the best I've had but good enough for a hungry traveller.
