Amazing range of food ideas. I just wanted to try them all. Settled for the chicken curry with rice and chips. Superb food, chicken just fell apart in your mouth, chips were excellent and rice was light and fluffy. Day tripping in Barry from West Midlands and only wish they were closer!

Served by the most pleasant and accommodating owners. A true culinary find... More

The staff at this fish and chip shop are so welcoming and friendly. They are very involved in the community and do absolutly loads for charity. The food is outstanding lots of home made stuff from curry to pie always looking to add products to their range, and the place is spotless

Once again another superb meal. I ordered the fish and chips, amazing quality, not greasy and well cool fluffy fish. The chips were great, great taste and again not greasy. I have tried other dishes to include chicken curry off the bone on chips or rice or half and half. Was amazing and too much food to eat. Great values,... More
