“Truly One Of The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Corvi's is a traditional fish and chip shop which is situated within the historic (and picturesque) town of Bo'ness. Since moving to the local area, Corvi's, with good reason, has become a firm favourite of mine and, in all my times visiting - whether with friends, family or alone, I've never (as yet) had a bad experience with the food consistently cooked to a very high standard and the staff too of an incredibly warm, friendly and professional disposition. In visiting these premises, you can see that "Bert" is a much-loved member of the local community and he and I have been able to talk in great detail abour our shared passion for good food.

Corvi's is very reasonably priced with the food of excellent quality - perhaps testament to the proprietors skill and many years of experience within the business and, without exception, each order is made whilst you wait ensuring that your food is fresh. Should you be so inclined, there's also a good selection of ice cream available which, on a summers day is certainly something to be enjoyed after your main meal. Within Corvi's there's a seating area which more mature people will certainly relate to as they'll remember the fashions/styles of times gone by and, for younger people, it's an experience in itself just being able to marvel at the many pictures and decorations from another era with the Corvi family themselves featuring prominently in many.

Out of all the fish and chip shops I've frequented over the years, Corvi's is the one with which I feel the most affinity, the one where I've been made to feel most welcome - almost to the point of being "part of the family" as it were for they show genuine (and sincere) care for their customers - something perhaps lacking nowadays and ALL staff are more than happy to assist in anyway they can which is especially helpful for those with disabilities etc. In visiting Corvi's, you can be sure to leave with a smile on your face and with the satisfaction too of knowing that you'll be eating good, honest and lovingly prepared food which will ensure that you look forward to your next visit, I know I do!

Truly one of the best.

“Corvi's Bo'ness - still great after 62 years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

My mum hadn't been in Corvi's in Bo'ness for 62 years and it did not disappoint!
Amazing fish and chips ( which would rival Anstruther as best in Scotland) and fantastically welcoming at atmosphere complete with open fire.

Thanks and well done to Bernie and his team ( whose grandmother my mum remembers) for keeping up excellent standards. More people should go to Bo'ness to experience this. Many thanks.
PS thanks also to the lovely lady who shared her birthday cake with the whole cafe when we were there. This added to my mum's enjoyment and seemed so typical of Corvi's local cafe ethos.

“Good old fashioned fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Corvi's is a family business that has been around for many years. It's simply a good old fashioned fish and chip restaurant delivering a quality product at reasonable prices. Having a sit in meal is like stepping back in time and their fish and chips are excellent as is the friendly service. Advise that you book a table if a large party at weekends. Closed Monday-Thursday.
