Fantastic. Great food. Very friendly and great location. We hadn't booked a restaurant in advance and therefore were very grateful to this place for serving great portions to keep us all satisfied. Good variety! Thank you

If you need a cold drink go across the road to the cross keys pub , if you are out of milk or bread then great , if you like fish and chips in a seaside town go to loo , they use frozen fish here and that's really naughty being so close to the sea. Get fresh fish ?... More

A friend of ours recommended we go to Cawsand and buy fish & chips. This appeared to be the only available shop, so we assumed that it must be this one. The fish & chips were cooked to order, so were hot, but seemed to be of a similar type to what you might get if you bought it from... More

A lovely quaint little shop that seems to sell everything you may need. I was served a glorious ice cream by a handsome and chatty young man and later a perfect pasty served by a cheery workforce. There truly is no place better!

You're not allowed to touch the salt and vinegar (for hygiene reasons(??!!). I don't understand this as every other restaurant in the land has salt and pepper on the tables, sometimes vinegar and ketchup too. Very annoying. Portions quite small, but not expensive.

Had nice fish and chips, friendly staff, food was fresh. Would visit again. Takeaway only so don't expect it to be smart and flashy.

Tasty fish and chips purchased from the shop in the square whilst sat on a bench watching the tide come in. Don't really understand why there was 5 members of staff behind the counter, but hay "I'm not complaining". The next day purchased a cornish pasty whilst on the beach, not much meat in it but was okay. Will use... More

Had quite a nice coffee on arriving off the beach at Cawsand, some outside seating to eat the take away food or drink. Shop sells a variety of seaside essentials. Came back here for a home made pasty after walking through both villages and looking at various eateries. Very acceptable pasty and reasonably priced

Treats customers like they are doing them a massive favour serving them. Eye rolling at customers questions and ignoring people waiting. I have never come across a business who clearly hate their customers but put up with them because of the amount of money they rake in. Pasties are really good which I guess is why people put up with... More
