“5 star chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

This is one of the best chippies not just in porthcawl but the uk.
We travel as a family a lot and love our chip shops but throughout the country we have never come across one as good as this, try it you wont be disappointed

“Pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

I know Porthcawl is a seaside town and the tourists expect to pay a little more, the chips are great, eating quickly they are warm and crisp. Not convinced the polystyrene containers add anything to fresh chips other than making them slightly soggy through sweating and adding pointless waste to the environment.

My biggest issue is paying £1.45 for a jumbo sausage. No, not a meaty, tasty sausage but one of those greasy meat free catering sausages which lack taste and texture. In fact, these types of sausage should be banned, but thats just my opinion.

£3.20 for a catering jumbo sausage and chips! Bargain.
