We stopped here by chance and had the fish and chips special (with a cup of tea and slice of bread) great value for money and the fish and chips were cooked to perfection! It was a beautiful sunny day so we sat outside, it's on a main road so not ideal but the food definitely made up for that!

You wait whilst it's cooked! And you taste the difference! No soggy batter just good quality fish and. Hope with a catch of the day and a good selection of non fish items too! Whether sit in or take away it's well worth a visit!

My husband and I visited on Thursday lunchtime and ordered a couple of hot drinks and fish and chips. The coffee was very good and the food was faultless, freshly cooked and no grease in sight. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our food and the visit overall. We will return when next in Penzance. Just a little point, the table that we sat at needed a bit of a wipe, but otherwise we were very happy campers. Thank you.

Nice place to sit & watch the world go by on a Sunday morning with rare spring sunshine!
Nice coffee, nice staff, good location just by the harbour & town centre.
