The best chippy in the area and for miles around. Whenever staying in the area always make a point of going here at least once as always reliable to deliver an excellent fish & chips or sausage & chips. Worth going out of your way for.

We went here for a family lunch as we heard good things about this chip shop. What a big let down. Staff wasn't nice at all very stropey think they must of had one of there off days. A bit pricey for there food too. Very small portions not good for money. Won't be returning.

We stayed in Cornwall for a week recently and ate here every other night, alternating with Prezzo in the centre of St Austell. We are always impressed by the Holmbush Fishbar as it is very good value for money, the food is always fresh and tasty, staff are helpful and friendly and there is a lot of choice on the... More

*Licks Lips* Winner winner, chippie dinner [lunch]... 🍴🐠🍟 Check out the onsite car park, yep, packed full of customers scoffing off their dinner. 'Obviously' I'm so more refined and eat mine at home, [freeing up a car parking space]... Super fresh fish, clean premises and good staff members. "Thank You" 🙏🏼

The best fish and chips ever! I live overseas now but every time I come back to Cornwall my first meal is cod and chips with mushy peas from Holmbush. So delicious!!

great fish and chips if you go there on weekdays / weekends hit or miss one of the few to do saveloy get there early for lunch as sometimes they have only what is left in the warmer by 1340 as they close by 2pm

Friendly staff and lots of choice make this a winner for me. They do get very busy as it is good quality food at a good price, but don't be put off its worth the wait. I am never able to get through my fish and chips and I have a good appetite so you won't starve here.

Great menu, well cooked with some lovely must try specials like salt and pepper battered squid, faggots plus all the usual suspects. Nicely cooked, chips don't harden up in ten mins like some places. Recommend, good value

Lovely freshly fried fish and chips, always a queue which is usually a sign that the food is good, no need to go large as the standard size is ample. Very helpful all girl staff. Every time we visit Charlestown on holiday we call in to this chip shop

Clean brightly lit fish & chip shop, called for a take away after long day sightseeing, two pleasant Ladies serving, very good fish, large bag of chips too small and somewhat under cooked, verdict OK but not best value, would travel a little further for better experience.
