Beats any homecooked meal and is one of the best fish and chip shops I've visited in my life. Everything is freshly cooked and well worth the wait. Staff were really friendly, did a great job in the heat. Spot on.

I went here the other week with my friend Byron and i had the fish and chips and Byron had a chicken burger and chips, and we both agreed that it was the best fish and chips EVER! It tasted like the fish had been caught the day we ate it! It was so fresh and I really recommend it!

Fish and chips seems to be going the way of a lot of fast food with loads of processed junk, especially the fish which is rarely good quality. However at Ainsworth's you still get decent quality food at reasonable prices. Cod was superb. I had the 'chunky' loin and my son had the standard and both were cooked perfectly in... More

A brief few hours trip to visit beautiful Caernarfon and it's lovely castle was made all the better for finding this lovely fish & chip shop. Cooked to perfection when you place your order so be prepared to wait a few minutes-- the fish was delicious, the batter crisp and light and complimented by good crispy chips. Great staff too....

Having checked out another nearby fish and chip shop we chose to eat here due to the impeccably clean appearance - newly fitted units, spotless stainless steel surfaces. Upon entry, we were pleasantly greeted by the owner. Having chosen our meal (they serve a selection of different types of fish), the fish was cooked fresh and looked incredible - huge... More

The only place I will go to get fish & chips. I come all the way from Mississippi and this is the best fish I have ever had hands down.
