Until recently was one of my favourite fish and chip shops in Cornwall until a recent visit. The staff were very lazy. The chefs couldn't be bothered to cooked the sweet potatoes in the morning to place on topping of the chips which was confirm by the waiter, the curry sauce was no where as good as it has been...

Chips undercooked, curry sauce is water. The fish was ok but this is NOT gourmet fish and chips. Really really really disappointed.

The grilled fish was just perfect. Others had the fish and chips and sausage and... More

As above, but the staff encountered each time were helpful, kind and served fair portion sizes. Nice consistency to the batter and altho the chips were a little drier than I might like they are now the best real fish and chips in st Ives Can't really fault them for prices either and altho the Cornish sausages won't be to...

We always come here when we visit St Ives. We were not disappointed on this trip. We had both eat-in and take-away. All excellent. I particularly like the option of grilled fish instead of fried. Having said that, the battered fish is always good too, the batter being nice and thin, tasty & crispy. Eating in, its a nice, pleasant... More
