Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I've been here many years ago and remember it favourably. Recent Tripadvisor reviews are great. What could possibly go wrong? Well, actually, first off is the parking. For a takeaway restaurant parking is important (unless you're a local) and the the parking is awful. Just...to be noted - it would be unfair to downgrade a chippie for something outside their control and I've not done so. Service was fine (contrary to some recent reviews) but my real issue was the food. Solid. Stodgy. Uninspiring. The fish itself was fine - fresh, decent portion size but a little overcooked, IMO. I drove 5 mins to eat it (because of the double-yellows) and the batter was soft and actually not cooked in a couple of places - odd given that the fish was over. I like both forms of chippie chips - soft with plenty of vinegar or hard crispy shell with a soft centre. These were fairly hard throughout and not wonderful. A bit of a chore to eat - so I didn't! My son took me to the local 'spoons 2 days later and the chips wee an order of magnetude better! My high hopes for a brilliant chippie just weren't met.More

take-away - excellent fish and chips. Cod and scampi both delicious- so fresh. Always popular but efficient service.

The food is incredible, the haddock and chips we ordered were huge and tasty. The fish is light and flakey and the chips are dry and delicious. The staff though… my god… if they were trained to be rude they’d get 10/10. The woman behind...the counter shouted “hey blondie” stand to the left (which was confusing as she was pointing to the right and me and another customer were confused). If I had wanted to be shouted at I’d have gone to an army style body combat class not to a chippy. Overall great food but the customer service skills could do with being polished up. The food was so excellent we popped back the next day to get some for lunch, waited outside (on the correct side) and then came into the shop to be told they were closed…. I initially thought the attitude was a personal vendetta but reading the other reviews it appears the staff have zero charm.More

If you were hungry and needed food, here meets the expectation. The fish and chips were good. Good crispy texture. It’s an efficient running corner shop you pay for the fresh food not the warmth of customer service and you pay for your condiments. Never...had that experience before!More

Food was fresh and well cooked but so overpriced? Cod and chips x 3 = £37.50??? for what turned out to be half a piece of fish ( no more than 6 inches long) and a lot of chips, like way too many with no...vinegar and barely any salt. This is poor value, and they are happy to take your money. Don’t ask for cod and chips and expect value- you’ll need to be specific- and ask for what size fish you expect to pay for £8.10 each- a large cod and small chips perhaps for £12.00 plus extra for Tommy sauce. This is not a business who care if you come back.More

Very Very nice fish and chips and we are fussy! The food was served quickly and really well cooked. Generous portions and the mushy peas were good too! Also served chicken and kids meals for the non fish eaters.

Very fresh cod (as you would expect) in a light crispy batter. The chips are not greasy also. All food is cooked to order so be prepared for a wait. Once ordered & paid for - there is a numbered ticket system & after waiting...outside you collect your food when called. This great British staple is great from here, but at £26 for 2 cod & chips & 1 x mushy peas it's not cheap any longer...More

In the world! We always go to Lewis' when we holiday in Cornwall. Visited the chip shop twice this last week. As always it never failed to deliver on quality fish and chips. So sadly lacking in chip shops "up country". No scrimping on portions...either. Highly, highly recommended!!More

Outstanding Haddock and lovely chips with superb service from Tracy especially when my frustrating particular son (4yo) said he didn't want snv on his chips, she came and gave him another bag gratis with none on them. Haddock was fresh, boned and skinned, something some...chippies in so called trendy or seafaring areas unfathomably don't do. Some who don't skin their fish don't even descale them??? As a hull lad who is used to outstandingly fresh haddock and chips this restaurant decently gets my stamp of approval!More

As far as I know - only battered and fried fish. The tapas place, on the corner in Newlyn, does great grilled fish.
