This is one of, if not the best, chip shop in Caernarfon. The shop is slightly more expensive than other chip shops, but this is reflected in the quality of the food. The food is excellent and the staff are always nice and friendly. Keep it up Ainsworth's, the chips are fantastic!

Ok, you're traveling all over the UK. Fish and Chips ubiquitous. Most are overcooked and bland, with soggy chips (AKA French fries). Not here! I had the best F&C in my entire three weeks in the UK. The fish is freshly and lightly battered and the chips were perfect. Lots of locals eat here. The staff is super friendly and... More

Stayed in Caernarfon and found this place after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. All orders are cooked fresh, they use good quality ingredients and its reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and work hard.

Fancied a chippy dinner one night, went to this place and even though i waited longer than expected, the resulting fish and chips were extremely good. There is a good choice on the menu and staff friendly, i can now see why this is a celebrated chip shop.

They maybe slow (for a fast food shop) BUT if you want fresh cooked hot food then this is THE chippie to visit. The haddock and chips was superb - well presented in a box

After all the positive reviews we were expecting more. I didn't mind the wait to be served. But despite the fish being reasonably tasty the chips were greasy and have obviously been sat for some time. Not a cheap meal by any means and not worth it in my opinion.

Ainsworth's PROMISE. We do not cook greasy chips, and we do not serve chips which have been standing. All our products are cooked by well trained fish fryers who are passionate about the food they cook. At Ainsworth's we cook fresh to order all of the time. Whether your having a fish, chips, burger or a sausage we want you... More

We drive a 300 mile round trip from Birmingham, 6 or more times every year, just to eat Ainsworth's food. We've been doing this as a family for over 10 years and there's a good reason we keep coming back. The food is AMAZING! Chips are perfect, always good unmarked potatoes and fried in clean oil. The fish is soft,... More
