I visited here on 17th June as the other places in Looe where busy. The food is not worth what you pay for cause the portion size is small but the food is expensive.

Me, my partner and our 10 month old bubba had a few hours on the beech, called in here for a quick chippy lunch. All food was cooked fresh so I didn’t mind the 10 minute wait. Reasonably priced and tasted lovely.

Apart from the prime position next to the beach, this place has nothin going for it. It took 20 mins to get to the till then another 20 mins to get the food. All I wanted was chips. There was no curry sauce or gravy....More
