Frequently Asked Questions

Do you cater for dietary requirements?

Yes, our menu covers gluten free options, plus options for vegetarians and vegans. We also try to make our specials diverse, to cover all requirements and tastes. Please ask one of our friendly team, who can advise you of the options we have to suit your dietary needs.

Do we need to book tables for the restaurant?

We do not generally accept bookings, especially during busy periods. However, if you have a large group or you would like to enquire about the availability of booking a table for a specific reason, please contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate you if possible.

Is your restaurant menu different to your takeaway

Yes. Our restaurant menu will include the traditional fish and chips, plus many of the staples you would expect from a fish and chip shop menu, but will also offer food from the grill and occasional special dishes to excite the pallet, if you would like something a little different.

Supporting the Local Cornish Economy

At Ben’s Mevagissey, we understand that good quality ingredients are vital to providing you a first-class menu and customer experience. We are committed to sourcing our ingredients locally wherever possible, to both support the local Cornish economy and help reduce our carbon footprint. Our MSC-certified fish is sustainably caught, and we always use Icelandic cod – caught in deep, ice-cold waters – producing the best standard of white flaky fish which we fry in our signature light and crispy batter. All bacon, sausages, meat and dry-aged steak burgers are provided by the award-winning Philip Warren Butchers in Launceston, and potatoes are seasonal varieties, direct from a farmer in Downderry, to ensure you are served exceptional food at all times.
