“Good location but chips were disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

I stopped off here during my walk along the South West Coast Path. I had a long afternoon's walking ahead to Portreath so decided to buy some chips from the Dophin Café and Take away which is at the top of the beach in a good location. I ordered a regular portion of chips for £1.70 which took a while as the sit-down customers seem to get priority. I was given my chips in a polystyrene container and asked if I wanted salt and vinegar which on answering yes, was handed the salt and vinegar to put my own on. I took them over to sit on the sea wall to eat them, guarding them from seagulls watching out for any food going spare. I was disappointed to find they were not fresh potato chips but frozen and rather tasteless I'm afraid. It is a shame when chippies choose to use frozen chips when freshly made are much more tasty and usually get more repeat business. I'm glad I only had a smaller portion as I didn't finish what I'd bought and had to bin the remainder and hate food waste! I hope the proprietors take note of my comments as I always try to write fair and helpful information for them andother visitors too.
