I checked the reviews on Tripadvisor before going to Shelley’s and the recent, poor ratings almost put me off. But I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt, and I’m glad I did. Ok, it’s not Rick Stein’s but the fish was good...More

Great traditional fish and chips, very friendly staff and family friendly too. Space inside to sit and eat. Make you have cash as they don’t take cards.

Stopped for lunch. It was very busy, had sausage, chips and gravy. Gravy was delicious but chips were slightly uncooked and average.

Love Aberdyfi, beautiful place. Sadly a lack of gluten free fish and chips. Very disappointed as it's not difficult!

My friend and I visited Aberdovey yesterday 13th July, we had lunch at Shelley’s. The fish did not have the usual meaty, tasty fish you have at the seaside. We recently went to Barmouth and the fish there was really tasty and with a freshly...More
