Ordered fish, chips, mushy peas and a pea fritter. Could not fault it! Cooked to perfection. Got to be one of the best fish and chip shops in St.Ives!

Staff were polite enough but food awful. Ordered 2 cod and chips. Batter was spongy, slimey and soggy. A fish shop in a seaside town should be able to cook fish properly. Truly awful.

It has been a year since we called last time and things have changed, but it still remains a super little chippy, the secret to their success is fresh cooked food that is worth the wait, nice portions and clean.
