Staying in an airbnb...asked the host to recommend a fish and chips place and without hesitation he suggested j lennox's. Pat told us how to queue up and in...they still could detect novices from a mile away and but accomdated us nicely. We ate outside and enjoyed every morsel even if we could not finish the fries. Next we will... More

Popped in here again a couple of times during our last visit. These folks truly know what they're doing service-wise...it's a really well-run place. I'm not overly keen on the chips because they seem only just cooked to me - I would prefer them crispier - but almost all the chips we got anywhere in Ireland were like that so... More

Fantastic may seem like an overused word.....but it really is the only way to describe the food. In and out in five with line ups....last chip tasted as good as the first and the fish was as good as I have ever had.

We had seen this shop mentioned on a Cork travel video and decided to walk here from Kent train station. It was worth the long walk up the hill. We each ordered fish and chips and got huge portions of haddock and chips. It was excellent. Everything was so hot we had to wait a bit for it to cool,... More

Nice, big portions and crispy, fresh fish. Peas are not freshly made and a bit hard, but the rest is great.

I have tried a curry chip from here a couple of times. The chips are often undercooked and flavourless, as far as chips go. The pricing is also too high. Cork's small-minded village attitude of Lennox's being the "best chips in Cork" is keeping this place afloat. There are much better options elsewhere which I would suggest in place of... More

Great fish and chips served here, with am excellent curry sauce too. The only downsides were the peas (very hard) and that they don't accept card for payment. Still, the curry and cheese chips are well worth getting! Recommended though!

Thank ColmMarren
