“Looked ok, tasted awful.”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Called here a few days ago, bought medium cod and chips, not the cheapest around at £5.25. Came in a box, presentation was ok, but that was as good as it got, the chips were hard, and the only taste was that of oily greasy taste, not at all pleasant. The portion size certainly wasn't generous, which made me feel better when they went in the bin, The fish, or should I say what fish, there was more batter than fish, and like the chips, the batter just tasted of old greasy oil, with a tiny piece of fish hiding inside. Very very disappointing from a shop that should know better.

“Fish 'n' Chips in Bodmin”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Friendly Staff in very clean, modern light and airy shop with great quality food -- 'ansome!!. Prices are competitive and the food baskets are environmentally friendly, and there is a TV screen displaying local information, which is useful.
