I came down from London for the weekend with a couple of friends and found this delightful shop by mistake whilst looking for a news agents. We decided to stop for chips and ice cream and the food was absolutely delectable and I believe the ice cream was authentic Cornish dairy ice cream and I enjoyed a healthy (or not so!) dolloping of clotted cream and it was delicious! The chips were suited to the establishment and the shop is aesthetically decorated. I found the staff to be polite and welcoming and I'm very pleased with this happy accident discovery.

We bought fish and chips from this place. The man working there was grumpy from the outset. Asked a couple of questions about what was on offer and he could not bring himself to be polite. The fish and chips were the worst I have ever had. The Fish is pre-battered frozen and tasteless. The chips certainly don't seem in any way home made though I have no doubts they heated them up somehow. We went back and complained and got lots of excuses about why a fish and chip shop 100yds from the sea cannot get hold of fresh fish or be bothered to make better chips. Disgraceful!

We popped into the shop to buy ice creams for the grandchidren.

The assistant was very helpful as the kids all picked different ice creams.

Only downside was the cost £8 for 4 ice creams seems a bit excessive, but they did enjoy them.

Occasionally, thankfully not very often you come across an establishment that is there to serve the public where the staff would rather be doing anything but serving the public. Unfortunately this shop was one of those.

We thought they would be glad of our custom on a dreary October sunday afternoon but sadly our experience left us feeling very unwelcome. It's advertised as a take away but they supply table and chairs indoors for customers to eat at, as it was a cold day we took advantage of this.

To be told to clear our own table when we'd finished eating whilst being looked on by 4 idle assistants behind the counter was just plain rude, it wasn't a polite request it was quite menacing.

Such a shame as the pasties were delicious, come on ladies it doesn't hurt to crack a smile and it doesn't cost anything to say thank you, you might even find yourselves enjoying your work!!
