We were able to get a table early evening without booking. Very good fish and chips, an ample serving. Staff friendly and welcoming.

6 of us had a takeaway. All very good. Scampi delicious and big portion for the money. Cod delicious and white flaky as it should be. Chips were yummy.. you can tell they were prepared fresh not out of a frozen bag! Great chippy and...will definitely be back.More

Having checked previous reviews we put it down as the place to have our fish and chips (6 adults and 5 children). The service was very good, quick and the food piping hot and very tasty. The price was very good as well. We were...down on holiday and ate them on the promenade and was asked where we had got our fish and chips and I directed them towards Skippys.More

Worst fish and chip dinner ever . Fish batter was over cooked and so tough you couldn’t get a knife through it - never mind eat it . Fish inside was sparse and dried up . This place is now known as Chippy’ s Fish...bar . Very disappointed. Won’t be visiting again .More

This is the only fish and chip shop in town so was disappointed they only had cod but none the less it was very tasty and the chips were good quality. Good value. Just be aware you will be queuing outside!

With only one chippy in Tywyn you would think the owners would want the chippy to be at it's best, but it all seems to be too much bother for them. Only cod was available, no other fish. All food served in polystyrene unless you...insist they don't use such harmful & damaging plastic (and they seem to resent this simple request). I'm surprised that any businesses are still wasting so much plastic in 2021. Rude blonde woman at counter. Prices surprisingly high. Opening hours very restricted - they close very early for a seaside holiday resort, & they start rushing customers out quite a while before their stated closing time - often 30 minutes before! Customer service is clearly a very low priority for these folk. If any take-away ever gave the impression that they don't want customers, it's this place! Perhaps they don't need or want our money? And it's cash only even in 2021!More

Have had fish and chips from here for years and had them again this week. As always the food was excellent, no gripes there. My god, the awful older woman with blonde hair serving at the counter, what an awful customer experience. She's terrible. Rude...and short with you. I'm back again next week and if she's there and behaves the same I'll be saying something. She will drive loyal customers away. Just an awful attitude.More

Amazing fish and chips. Crispy batter, golden grease free chips. A steak and kidney pie to die for! Welcoming and friendly staff, good banter between the staff team. Despite the limits to numbers of people in the shop the queue went down quickly, service with...a smile all the way. Also, seriously reasonable prices, which is a plus. This is a Plaice you must visit!More

The haddock was amazing, chips spot on. Best fish and chips I’ve had in ages, bearing in mind we are local to one of the best in the country.

Went three times in the week as they were best I have tasted. Succulent cod and lovely chips second only to our own home cooked ones. Will visit again.

Agree, there is no consistency with the chip shop in preparation. If they sorted out a good quality batter and decent fish size - then they would improve their custom. You would expect better at a seaside take away.
