Superb! A 20 minute wait due to the popularity even in late March. Staff working their socks off, but friendly with it. All meals were freshly and perfectly cooked. We took ours to enjoy in the dunes on the beach. Perfect :)

As a family we absolutely love this fish and chip shop. You can even get kids portions which is a bonus and there are a few seats inside if it's cold out. Best chippie tea for miles around and we've been coming here for over 10 years whenever we come down to the seaside for the day. Crispy batter, flaky... More

We have been coming to barmouth for years and believe me, no visit is complete without at least one visit to this lovely fish and chip shop. Tried most things on offer but if i were you I'd go for traditional fish and chips. Always fresh and beyond compare. This is my most favourite chippy and i certainly enjoy my... More

I wish there were one of these in every town. No nonsense good quality at a reasonable price. And I would want to pick a fight with the women serving 😉

We stopped in Barmouth at lunchtime having promised ourselves real seaside fish and chips. We wandered through the town and joined a long queue (always a good sign) outside the chip shop. It was a very chilly day and the wait was so worth it. Best fish and chips take away for years.

Literally the most amazing fish and chips. At busy times there will be a queue. Trust me, it's worth the wait. Fish and chips simply do not get any better than this.

2 x Small fish and chips, more like large fish and chips. Lovely lunch with mushy peas and curry, you won't get better chips plus mug of tea x 2 for £11. And a table to sit at on an otherwise miserably misty dull day. Drive home was better for the food.

Great value for a family lunch. The kids love the fish and chips and £2.50 for a kids lunch is a bargain. Tastes great and we revisit every time year we come back to Barmouth. Delicious!
