Shame these people cannot get their act together,the fish and chips are great,but do holidaymakers have to wait for an hour to receive them?There are better ones all over Yorkshire(cooked with beef dripping-the only way)with no delays like they have in Criccieth.Be warned if you are standing by the front door in the queue be prepared for a long long...

Been coming here for years, amazing quality. Long wait but well worth it! Think the long line of people waiting shows how amazing this place is. Love it :)

Friendly staff turn out great fish and chips that the locals and visitors queue for. It is well staffed so the queue moves well and there is also a dining room if you don't want to stand and wait. A great bonus if you have hungry kids.

This was the delicacy I was waiting to experience my whole trip. Worth the wait! Delicious fresh fish in delicate crispy batter with mushy peas and fries. Wish I could get them in the U.S.!

Perhaps due to the fact that we were there at the tail end of a tourist season with amazing weather extending the season, we did not have a long line to wait in. After visiting the castle 50 meters away, two lovely ladies suggested, after I asked, that we enjoy this shop. Being that we had some fish and chips... More

All cooked fresh and tasting like fish & chips should. It's not every day you come across a chip shop where they fillet fish on the premises. They do have a seating area as well but fish & chips always taste better eaten from the paper!

Well worth the trip to Criccieth the fish was cooked to perfection - white as snow and light crispy batter. The queue was out of the door so we ate in the diner at the back. The best fish, chips and peas.

We have had fish and chips from here before, hence our return visit. Best fish and chips you'll ever have. Cooked to order, so hot and fresh. Lovely flakey fish in mouth watering batter. This chippy is well worth travelling to. However is closed on a Wednesday, so be warned. We took ours out, didn't look like the restaurant part... More
