The fact we arrived at around 3.30pm may have accounted for the chips that looked and tasted like frozen ones. However the same excuse could not be made for the long grey hair sat in the middle of them. The café area was ok and the fish wasn't bad so have been generous with a score of two. However, one wonders exactly how many fish bars previous reviewers have tried as this experience of fish and chips must be the poorest I have ever had.

Went here for lunch on a day trip to Barmouth, the shop is really a take away but has two or three tables inside if you prefer not to eat you food alfresco! I had pie, chips and gravy it was boiling it was a bit difficult to eat though as you are only supplied with a fork no knife, but they probably had knives if requested, another of our party had fish and chips and that was also boiling hot, the food was served in little polystyrene boxes and it was like eating proper seaside fish and chips only not in paper, we also had mugs of tea to wash down our food and this was also a good brew. Would recommend will go again if ever in Barmouth

Brill Fish and Chips...and allowed the dog in as long as she behaved herself, fish is good, chips cooked nicely and good selection of other stuff to choose from.
