Roy Hawkins and his crew at Rosscarbery Fish and Chips have had a fantastic Summer after reopening after Lockdown. Traditional Fish and Chips in Rosscarbery is located on the N71 at Creggane, by a Top petrol station and a Spar shop, you can also have great burgers (€3.30 – €8.90) with a local twist, like The Big Fella or The Drombeg Burger. Established in 2018, they set out to be a high quality takeaway restaurant that provides food for coeliacs and vegetarians which is the only one of its kind in West Cork. They use locally sourced produce to make their food which is all made to order.
But the fishy heroes – haddock, hake, and scampi – are knockout, not just very well priced but thought by many to set the standard. They also have great deals for kids, too. Like everyone else in the country, they’ve been affected by Covid-19, but, as daughter of the house, Cassidy Hawkins, explained, they sprang into action by adding a lovely Covid-conscious cafe garden where they created a stress-free green escape. John Joe’s Garden is now closing for the winter but the Takeaway will still be offering great takeaways in its signature burgers, fish locally sourced at Union Hall every morning and freshly filleted and prepped on site and “real” freshly cooked chips. The portion sizes are excellent and great value for money. The place is spotless and the staff are always very pleasant. Get down there soon as the proof is in the eating.
