All our food was very tasty and served really hot which was fab after being down the front on a freezing day. Staff very friendly too.

Great local fish and chips behind the cinema. Decent sized portions and all fish wash freshlt fried when we were there. Two fish and chips, ketchup, jumbo sausage and a pickled egg all for under £20. Great batter and great chips

Freshly cooked fish, huge portions of chips, good chat while waiting, always get my fish and chips from this quiet back street place rather than the more obvious (and not as good) places on the harbour front.

Ordered fish, chips, mushy peas and a pea fritter. Could not fault it! Cooked to perfection. Got to be one of the best fish and chip shops in St.Ives!

Staff were polite enough but food awful. Ordered 2 cod and chips. Batter was spongy, slimey and soggy. A fish shop in a seaside town should be able to cook fish properly. Truly awful.

It has been a year since we called last time and things have changed, but it still remains a super little chippy, the secret to their success is fresh cooked food that is worth the wait, nice portions and clean.
