A great little establishment where English Fish and chips are made in the heart of Wales. All food cooked fresh from raw products whilst you wait and served up by very friendly staff. The fish is delicious

Just popped in for a quick lunch. I think the best chips and beautiful crispy cod. Spotlessly clean and friendly staff. Just went for the mini meal but it was a good plateful so excellent value. Added good portion of mushy peas. Just 4 stools at the window bench top - only disappointment no cafe

My Taid is very picky with his fish and chips and he described them as "lovely" which is very high on his scale! The mini fish and chips were a perfect portion for my 84yr old Taid. It was also super clean which is always a plus xx
