John Gardiner owns & runs The Blue Fish Bar. He and his wife Sandra were travelling
in Australia in 2000 when they came across their idea of the perfect fish and chip
shop - right by the sea, serving great food in biodegradable cardboard packaging
and offering ‘bring your own bottle’.
Eight years later they found the ideal premises in Mawgan Porth and John set about
replicating their Aussie experience on the beautiful north Cornwall coast.
At the Blue Fish Bar we have invested in the best available British-made fryer that
reaches temperatures high enough to allow us to fry quickly and efficiently - meaning
healthier food through lower oil absorption, and moist, flavoursome, perfectly cooked
Our Cod, Haddock and whole tail Scampi comes, in the main, from well managed sustainable
Icelandic waters, where fish numbers are generally healthy.
We fry in beef dripping. All fish is cooked to order to ensure quality and freshness,
served up with a wedge of lemon and is probably best enjoyed with a pot of our simply
sensational homemade Tartare Sauce.
Our double-cooked chips are perfectly soft on the inside and crisp on the outside;
we use potatoes that are delivered direct from a farm just 6 miles away in Truro.
We chip potatoes on the premises, and fry them with the skins on for natural goodness
and maximum taste.
