About Peckish

Robert Peck began his career in the mid 90s working in his local fish and chip shop as an assistant fryer.

In 1998 he set up his own mobile fish and chip business serving the villages of North Dorset. The business grew to such a point that Rob was able to sell it and buy his own takeaway and restaurant in Bournemouth. This business was then refurbished and became a great success but by 2008 it was time to move on.

Rob and his wife Louise moved to Camelford, North Cornwall in November of 2008 and took ownership of the town’s fish and chip shop.  After being refurbished and rebranded as ‘Peckish’ it reopened in mid January 2009 and has thrived ever since.

In June of the same year Peckish became the first fish and chip shop in North Cornwall to obtain the 5-star Fryers Quality Award, the highest accolade Seafish give.

Continuing on this success, Rob and Louise entered the 2011 Fish and Chips awards, where they became the Number 1 fish and chip shop in the South West and Runner-up in the UK.  A great achievement!
