Enjoyed family takeaway fish and chips twice during our recent stay. Excellent cod freshly cooked, the chips all of different shapes and sizes not the factory pre-prepared rubbish. Certainly recommended for an evening sitting by the harbour side or looking out to sea. Very helpful and cheery staff too.

Considering a few reviews were bad. We gave it a go and found the staff very friendly and the fish & chips were lovely. Glad we tried it even after seeing a few bad reviews.

Well I read some harsh reviews and think they are just of track a lot. They didn't open up till the last day before the end of my holiday. I'm so glad they did. Some say the old fellow is grumpy, so what! Adds to the character of the place. At the end of the day he's still selling food... More

Lovely location near the harbour in the beautiful village of Polperro, and the only fish and chip shop in the village we were expecting something good, but were disappointed. Decor very dated and tired. Only popped in for a couple of bags of chips and felt very under valued as a customer. Waited for some time being ignored, although no... More

I was very excited about having food from 'The Chip Ahoy' as the shop was closed during the week, we waited especially until Friday lunchtime to go and get a treat from here to eat on the harbourside before the long trek back to the City. We ordered a portion of rock and chips to share. The service was friendly... More

Friendly staff, interesting interior, food OK but not complaining too much as The Chip Ahoy came to the rescue. I was out of cash and unable to find a cash point in the village (the only one was in the post office that had just closed). There were restaurants that did not take plastic, so it was a relief the... More

This has got to be the worst Fish and Chips I have ever had. Over priced for the quality which to be honest there is no quality.
