Having spent few days in Barmouth this place was recommended to us for the best fish and chips in town by our B&B owners, so we decided to visit. If you are looking for a proper fish and chips do not go to this place. They do not have many choices in terms of type of fish that they serve. They have Cod(battered in premises) however they also have a plaice on their menu. Do not be fooled! What they serve as plaice is what you would get from iceland. They just fry the shop bought breaded plaice whilst you wait for your food thinking you are getting some nice tasty fish. Their chips are also very greasy and did not taste fresh at all. I must say that if you go for cod you might be okay however you still have to put up with the tasteless, greasy chips. I have ended up putting all my chips in the bin along with the thick bread cover of the plaice. Owners, if you are reading this review please inform your future customers that you serve shop bought breaded plaice instead of preparing it yourselves like any other proper fish and chips place would have done. At least that way your customer has a chance to make an informed decision and might opt for cod instead! Not good value for money, try somewhere else in town!
