Always busy, always good, never had a bad meal from Flounders. That ideal not greasy chips/batter and nice meaty fish. The gravy also awesome. Now don't start shouting that gravy with fish and chips is weird. If it was why does a fish & chip shop sell it? ;)

Usually but fish and chips. Portions very generous and always freshly cooked to order. If you want a smaller portion order child's fish size Chairs and tables to sit and wait or eat your takeaway. No cutlery or plates provided. May have to queue for a while at busy times.

Tea time Friday night and there is a queue outside of the door full of locals and tourists alike....best fish and chips in town and reasonably priced for the size of servings (1 cod and chips does for both of us!) and quality.

I live near Ironbridge in Shropshire and chip shops in the week are open until 10pm, So I sort of expected the same down south. Unfortunately they all seem to shut early at 8.30. We went on the hunt and all the chip... More

I always knew that Cornwall has fantastic f&c but that establishment is truly unique. They have a wide choice of some other extras and staff are marvellous. My wife loved it too.

The owners allways seem very nice. Staff not so good. Was told my voucher was out of date when it wasnt. Then paid for a jumbo sausage but got given two small ones instead.
