Great fish and chips, pies are generic not home-made but this is fish-central! They do have gravy at least!

Having enjoyed top quality fish and chips on a previous visit to Porthleven we were looking forward to a similar experience on this year's visit. Unfortunately we were very disappointed on this occasion. The batter on the fish was only lightly cooked and the fish fell apart when we unwrapped them at our nearby accommodation. The chip portion was small, particularly when compared with those given at Roland's and the mushy peas were very dark and more like a puree. On the plus side, service was pleasant and cheerful. Hopefully this was just an "off day".

Doesn't deliver what it promises: greasy chips, heavy batter, unfriendly staff. Will not recommend or return.

Visited The Top Chippy Porthleven whilst staying on holiday. We received a warm, cheerful and friendly welcome followed by the most tastiest fish and chips I have ever tasted. The batter was light and crisp with the fish (cod) fresh and tasty. The chips tasted delicious. This chip shop obviously uses top quality ingredients as well as skilled cooking staff who definitely know their profession. Will visit again and highly recommend to all. Thank you so much for making our holiday memories happy and delicious.
