“Never again.!”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

on a recent trip to newquay i visited most chip shops in the town and have to say this was by far the worst, there was a large queue and i waited patiently, when i reached the front i was served by a young indian woman, in jest i said "about bleeding time" followed by a small chuckle to which she aggressively responded "go somewhere else if you don't want to wait". I apologized realising perhaps i'd been misunderstood and then placed my order, i even told the girl to keep the change, and wasn't even thanked. When i received my order, i took it out the front of the store to eat on the table and chairs, i sat down and dug into my chips which were very greasy but none the less quite nice but then when i began to eat my cod the batter was hard and chewy and the fish was dry. When i go to a fish and chip shop i prefer crisp chips but greasy is fine so long as they taste good but fish should always have crisp golden batter and moist flakes not brown rubbery batter encasing even rubberier fish. Sorry Flounders but i won't be coming again, horrible staff and disgusting food. I could have forgiven the bad staff had the food been good.

“Best fish and chips ever”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Decided to eat out one day and fancied fish and chips, found flounders and boy i was shocked, the most amazing fish and chips ever. The staff were incredibly friendly and happy and also offered to bring my food over when it was done! I will be eating there again

“Great Quality Fish and Chips”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

The wife and I had Cod and Chips and the kids had Chicken Nuggets and Chips.
The Cod was superb and very large with not too much batter! The nuggets were made with real chicken breast and did not touch the sides. The girls serving had fun with the kids whilst we were waiting and gave them a free bucket and spade each!! Thoroughly superb!
