The Passing Place
Where to even begin…we’ve been visiting St Agnes in Cornwall for a Summer camping holiday for a good few years now. We first came across Lewsey Lou’s in 2013 and haven’t looked back. Keep reading and you’ll see why!
Stumbled across this gem of a fish and chip shop when walking down to the beach so we decided to treat ourselves and weren’t disappointed. The food is freshly prepared so there’s a short wait but definitely worth it. The skin-on chips were perfectly cooked, hand cut not like the frozen ones you so often get and beautifully fluffy inside. Andy ordered mushy peas, which I usually hate, but having tried them wish I’d ordered some myself! They were fresh, a bit minty and a perfect addition to the meal. We had a haddock and a hake which we shared and both were gorgeous, you could choose battered or grilled – great if you’re gluten free or trying to be healthy (ish). The fish was sustainably sourced and line-caught locally – even better! They also sold bottled ales from the microbrewery across the road which were really tasty and a worthy accompaniment. We ate our foodie feast with a great view over the bay just a short walk up the hill, as suggested by the girl who served us. Owner Chris was really friendly and the staff were great too, couldn’t recommend this place highly enough.
So much so I actually wouldn’t be able to count how many times we’ve visited this gorgeously tasty slice of Cornish coast. We’ve camped in St Agnes many times and the chippy is always a highlight. Andy even went late one night and got a load of free chips with his order which we cooked up for breakfast the next day with local free range eggs – anything goes when camping right?
Update: We haven’t actually been to St Agnes since the little man was born so having been every year for about 6 years I actually have no idea if this place still exists! I hope so though as one day we will definitely be back.
