After hearing such amazing reviews I was slightly disappointed, the portions were small. With no choice on size or type of fish either. Definitely not worth waiting over an hour forMore

We had take away chips to warm us up on a rainy day and they didn't disappoint. Delicious food and really friendly service.

For an unasuming little chip shop in a small Welsh seaside town, what a find. Did not know how popular this place was but can understand why. One of the best bits of haddock I have tasted! Good food, great price.

This place never disappoints. All food freshly cooked Fish fresh and lovely crispy batter. Can recommend the battered sausage as a sneaky starter while waiting to take our order back to the family. Oops now the secret is out!

Great fish and chip shop always go every time we go to cricceth. Always a que but worth the wait, and always sit on a bench that overlooks the sea to eat them. You can sit inside but who wants too.
