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.

Jasmine took great care of us when we arrived, hungry, late in the evening in the rain and just wanted some fish and chips. She really cheered us up and made the best fish and chips that we had had in a long long time. (And my companion should know, he spent his working life owning and managing successful fish and chip restaurants) certainly a little gem in an unexpected place, and with parking outside too.

Totally fabulous experience, food is always cooked fresh, always really tasty and just as it should be, the staff are always great, friendly and helpful and just great customer service. Always a pleasure to see it eat it and enjoy it. The spicy curry sauce is wonderful and has that little extra taste to the normal curry sauce. Needs to be tried. We’ll be back again probably next week. This time we were in a bit of a hurry and phoned the order through and all ready within a few minutes of getting there with freshly cooked lemon sole.

Been coming to this fish bar for 23 years and not one issue until recently,the new staff are very rude, unprofessional and know nothing about customer service or customer care. The tall women that works there is very rude and loud, she couldn’t understand my order which was a simple one and even though I clarified on four occasions she still didn’t understand and got angry with me, the manager then took over and told her to take five minutes out, then instead of apologizing for her rudeness then said it must be my accent! Unbelievable, seems there rude and racist. I’m English and lived in Cornwall for nearly 25 years.?

Firstly, thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry to hear you didn’t have a good experience whilst visiting our shop. We strive to make sure all of our customers go away happy after receiving excellent customer service and our delicious food. After speaking to those involved on this particular busy Friday night it seems frustrations ran high when the lady that served you couldn’t grasp your order, referring it to the manager, who was then pulled away from time sensitive frying behind the range to help. Her priority being fulfilling your order so that you may have the food desired. We are not racist, we serve local people and visitors with the upmost respect all year round and apologise if she offended you by making the suggestion that you had been misunderstood due to your accent. As a valued customer of 23 years we apologise for any misunderstanding and hope to welcome you back soon.

We were disappointed with our meal of large cod and chips. The fish and chips were dry and tasteless. Won’t be back.

WOW!! Holmbush Fish Bar catered for our social event at Porthpean Sailing Club on Saturday Feb 18th! Everything was spot on, well organised and clearly labelled as requested (34 orders!) The order was kept hot and efficiently packed as we arrived! The fish was cooked to perfection and the chips (fried in vegetable oil….unlike other local chippies) were great! Thank you for everything! We will definitely be using you again!

made my first visit for many months last night and had to wait 35 minutes for chips and fritters. however, it was so busy with constant queuing outside. the staff, in particular the serving staff, worked so hard and somehow managed to maintain service with a smile throughout my time there. this is a popular place for a reason. the chips and fritters were excellent. so, overall it was worth the wait. i should add that whilst parking is free i couldn't find a space when i arrived,so parked on a nearby road side

As you can see if you trawl through my previous reviews of this chippy we've had highs and lows over the years but this time was definitely a high. I really don't know whether the ownership has changed since I was last here but we decided to have a fish and chip lunch. The fish was lovely, moist and flakey in a really light, nearly tempura batter which wasn't at all greasy. Likewise the chips were well cooked, again not greasy but really hot. We ordered Haddock which was cooked freshly for us and the chips likewise. Was well worth the few minutes wait and even after driving home the whole meal was still very hot. Possibly the best fish and chips we've had in a long time.............
