The Cod End fish and chip shop is close to Newquay Station and alongside Aldi.
Offering the full, traditional, range of fish and chip suppers, there are tables inside and out if you want to sit down and eat your fish and chips – although I’d suggest you take them outside to sit on the benches at Aldi and enjoy the al fresco experience with beach view, although there are sea views from inside if you can get a seat at the rear.

At the bottom of the cliff steps in the garden of the Fern Pit Cafe is the Fern Pit Ferry. Operating during the summer season, during daylight hours, when the tide is high there’s a small boat that can transport you from Crantock Beach to the Newquay side of The Gannel. When the tide is low there is a small wooden footbridge you can walk over.
The Fern Pit Ferry Boatshed also sells freshly caught lobsters and crabs. With a minimum of just one hour’s notice they will cook a fresh lobster or crab for you – pop in and choose the one you want, then collect it later, or phone your order ahead. Perfect for your beach picnic, just add fresh bread and salad and you’re in heaven.
The small shop at the Boathouse also operates as a beach shop selling all your usual beach gear, including buckets, spades, rubber dinghies, wind breaks, body boards, beach games and balls as well as crab fishing lines, nets and bait which can be used in the river and rock pools on the beach. They also sell a wide range of shells and jewellery.
The privately owned steps, which take you to the top of the cliff and Fern Pit Cafe, are open to the public between 10am-6pm during the open season (end May – mid September).
