“Best fish and chips ever”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Great service, efficient staff and the tastiest haddock and chips, (with mushy peas of course) that I've had for a long time. Visited this place regularly in the last 15 years. Never had a bad experience there. Well done everyone.

“Best fish ever”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Whenever we go to Porthcawl we have fish & chip. We usually go to the one on station hill but decided to try Beales after a not so good last visit to station hill.
Thank goodness we did.
9.15pm on a Friday, took about 2 minutes to be served and fish cooked to order. It was the best fish & chips I've ever tasted! The cod was pure fish, not 1 bone, and the batter was perfect. Not cheap at approx £5.50 but it was worth it. Been back once since and same experience again. Won't go anywhere else.

“Average fish and chips”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Beach day out, average fish and chips. Batter a bit soggy, chips nicely cooked. Would go again, but nothing to rave about. Staff could try smiling, customer service needs to up their game

“Hot and tasty”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This is not the cheapest fish and chips, the pot of tea I had to accompany was expensive and small. The fish and chips was a decent size portion and certainly freshly cooked, very hot! The service was prompt and professional. Overall a quality meal if a little expensive.
