“Lots of independent stores”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

A small but pleasant shopping area. Lots of independent retailers and not too touristy - unlike Barry Island

“Shopping without the supermarkets”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

nice to find a shopping area with traditional shops and a very friendly atmosphere.Shops vary from Hardwear to Butchers.Fancy Novelty Balloons,upmarket boutique shops,and the good old charity shops.After you have walked your feet off.you have the choice of various Cafes and Restaurants or if you fancy something stronger you have the choice of 4 public houses. 2 in the High Street or 2 just around the corner.Parking can be abit difficult in the High Street but there are plenty of surrounding side streets to accommodate.Very nice to go back to traditional shopping.

“High Street, Barry”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

High Street is a good shopping area in the West of Barry. It has little craft shops, delicatessen, hardware, dress shops, and grocery and greengrocers shops as well as an excellent butcher. There are good eating places in High Street and Broad Street and if you like Italian, Chinese, Indian, English, Greek and Turkish this is the place for you. It has a friendly feel to it and you are always welcomed into the shops and feel a valued customer. A pleasant place to shop.
