Best fish and chips! We had great conversation and amazing food, walked and then ate it out of great boxes right on the water. Thanks Tom for serving and Mark for cooking the cod to perfection :)

On a weekend trip from Liverpool - had probably the best fish and chips we've had in a long time today! Cooked to order and served in great boxes so we had perfect fish and chips by the water, excellent chippy!

Went here yesterday with my dad as we we were going to the theatre and didn't have much time to spare before it started. The restaurant was clean and well presented, the posters and leaflets were of a good standard and very professional and easy to read. We were met by a young male member of staff who seemed happy...

Just had 2 mini cod and chips from Ainsworth's Caernarfon. Which we have had many times before with no complaints. But today we were given old chips mixed with new. Old ones were very fatty and burnt. Wife threw her's away. Will try pool Street next time.

I had yet another excellent cod and chips from Ainsworth's in Caernarfon this evening. Both the fish and the chips were cooked quickly and to perfection. Jay, the cook, told me precisely when my fish would be ready and Tom, who served me, was as friendly and efficient as always. I'd happily recommend Ainsworth's to anyone visiting Caernarfon who appreciates... More
