Let’s be honest, proper fish ‘n’ chips really does take some beating, doesn’t it? It’s so good that it’s actually got its own national day!
We think the fish ‘n’ chips taste best here in Cornwall (but we would say that, wouldn’t we…). You can beat tucking into a tasty portion of (with plenty of salt and vinegar, of course), while sat looking out over one of Cornwall’s picturesque harbours.
But, with so many chippies across the county where exactly are the best places to get the tastiest of servings? Handily, our North Cornwall holiday park is only a stone’s throw from some of the county’s finest establishments! Read our guide to some of the best here…
Port & Starboard, Indian Queens: Head down the A30 to the small village of Indian Queens and tuck in to some exceptionally good grub at Port & Starboard. This award-winning chippy is run by Barney Manoli (along with his son Charlie) who has over 30 years’ experience in the business.
Stein’s Fish & Chips, Padstow: It goes without saying that Rick Stein’s fish ‘n’ chips are going to be good. And, more surprisingly, they’re not too expensive either! Here you can take-away or sit down and eat in their restaurant area.
Peckish, Camelford: This award-winning chippy scooped the coveted 5-star Fryers Quality Award back in 2009 and, following this success they entered the 2011 Fish and Chips Awards where they were crowned the Number 1 chippy in the South West, and second best in the whole UK.
Flounders, Newquay Located just 150 yards from Towan Beach, Flounders serves up a mouth wateringly tasty variety of fish and chip dishes. It’s also TV celebrity and Newquay local Philip Schofield’s favourite chippy!
Harbour Lights, Falmouth If you don’t mind a bit of a trek then head to the south coast and the vibrant town of Falmouth. The Harbour Lights here is well worth the drive. In 2017 it was named the Best Independent Fish and Chip Restaurant in the UK at the National Fish and Chip Awards.
