What a find! New to area so had to drive around looking out for a f&c shop. Couldn't have done better anywhere. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable, and great at what they do. Delicious all round. We'll be back.

Very very tasty - we had haddock and chips! Not open very much between Christmas and New Year but we got lucky. Quite possibly the best fish n chips I've had in the last 20 years.

I enjoy my fish and chips and have been to some good chips shops before and plenty of not so goos ones. I don't know what they do differently at this place but the haddock and chips was just brilliant. The batter was light crisp and really tasty.I wish it wasn't 200 miles from home

Lovely owner truly a wonderful guy. Always enthuiastic when at the shop and you get a feeling the guy's genuine not after your cash. The food itself is of a very good standard the fishcakes are especially nice as are the gravy and curry. All his baps are homenade and are delicious. The only downside is that the prices are...

Best fish and chips of the area without any doubt. Loved their battered Cod. Still miss them. If you are visiting the place, it is indeed round the corner

Just finished a portion of what are quite possibly the best fish and chips I have ever had! All cooked to order and sensible portion sizes, if they were closer to home I'd be a regular. Thanks

Another rainy day in Wales so we stopped for some chips whole waiting for the indoor play area to open. Only had chips but they were the nicest chips I've had in a long time! They were crisp and fluffy inside without a hint of greasiness. Go get some!
