100% Fresh and Authentic British Favorite! Well worth a visit!

By far, the best place in Caernarfon for this British Fave. Cooked to order by a friendly lad. The place is spotless and there are a few window seats. Forget the ones on the square ( I've tried them) this is the best.

The staff served us very quickly. They were friendly with a good sense of humour. One of my favourite things to do is eat fish & chips near the sea. That's why I was so happy to find this gem of a place! I visited Caerafon for the first time with my family and we all loved it. Next time... More

We visited last night and as a family of 6 are used to causing chaos. We were served quickly with fresh food cooked in front of us in a brilliantly clean and tidy kitchen. The food was lovely and we will defiantly be making a return trip before we go home.

The chip shop has many excellent qualities - friendly staff, reasonable prices, a good selection and the food is not greasy or soggy. The downside is the wait. I understand the shop prides itself on freshly cooked food - but the wait this produces can be ridiculous at times and very off putting. We have used the chip shop on... More

Friendly efficient staff. Quick service. Delicious food. Although the large chips were a bit small for my husband but I think that's more down to the fact that he wanted more and more of the delicious golden treats. Really enjoyed our visit.

My aunt said this was best in town and is. Good fast service. Made my daughter some potato scallops especially as they had run out and she'd been looking forward to them. We don't get them near us. Would highly recommend
