Looe has a few fish and chip takeaways, most sell standard frozen fish & average chips. This place is wonderful. You do pay a little more but what you get is lovely fresh fish cooked perfectly and chips as you’d want them to be - fat but not greasy. If you’re after fish and chip takeaway that’s a class apart then this is the place.

When 'The Catch' opened in 2014, it set the standard for fish and chips in Looe. It was everything you’d expect from an establishment owned by the Tanner brothers. Accordingly, I wrote an extremely positive review in 2016.

Well, the Tanner brothers no longer own it……and it really shows.

We ordered lunch for three there today - before we found out it had changed hands. To say the food was disappointing would be an understatement. The chips were all but inedible (stodgy and overcooked) and the batter was swimming in grease. Worse, it tasted unpleasant – tainted - as if the oil was stale.

The whole setup – food, service, reduced outside seating - lacks the polish of the Tanners’ operation.

Very disappointing.

We visited The Catch on several occasions whilst we were staying in Looe visiting family.

The fish is extremely good quality, cooked to order so piping hot and absolutely delicious.

I am coeliac so need gluten free and this was not a problem. The fish and chips are stored separately and cooked separately from gluten containing items.

The staff here are very knowledgeable about cross contamination, so you can relax and enjoy the food and know with certainty that it is gluten free - other coeliacs will understand the importance of this.

I would definitely recommend this fish and chip restaurant.

Excellent GF fish and chips! I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The homemade tartar sauce makes all the difference too. On top of this, the service was excellent. We visited with our 19mth old. The lady that served us was really great with her. The staff were all very welcoming.
