This was the first place we eat when we came to Colwyn Bay to look at houses. We were very impressed not only with the price but at the excellent quality. We have tried other chippies but none are a patch on this one. The staff are friendly and welcoming and for my wife who is very particular, the batter on the fish is perfect.

In a town FILLED with takeaways This one is not too bad at all.staff are nice,Allways good,in my book.Prices not too bad.average for the area.Portions a bit poor,in my view.The standard Chip Shop fare is on offer with an eat-in cafe option.Its a fair place.

Over the last 5 years We have had many a eat in and take out meals from here but sadly last few visits have been very disappointing - quality of food is just not as it was and last take out was so bad it went in the bin - as a result have stopped going here and opted to try the other chip shops in the bay some worse some better but sadly to find a really good traditional English fish n chip shop We have to travel out of Colwyn Bay but its worth the short journey if the food and service is good.

The fish and chips (and Scampi for my daughter) is amazing. Freshly prepared by the friendly staff just like it used to be. So nice to be able to sit inside too unlike most chippys these days.
If you are in the area and want some traditional British seaside food, then this is where to go. Accept no substitutes.
