We usually visit here when we come to barry island as the chips are lovely and the service is very good and its good value for money. Will keep on returning here when we are next in the area.

We tried this place. Next door was equally busy, both with big queues on what was a sunny day in the holidays. Queue was slow but everything was cooked fresh. I wondered why they took fish orders down the queue. I would have thought there...More

We visited Boofy's during our seaside stay in August. Excellent food and a fantastic view from the tables inside. I would definitely recommend to others.

11:00 am - 6:00pm. However Boofys will close earlier if customers dry up (example December to February Boofys have closed at 4:00pm due to lack of customers).
