My family leave in a nearby village and took us here as this is their favourite fish n chip takeaway. Despite that it was October and a cold Wednesday evening, the food was excellent. Proper chips, decent sized piece of cod, and my kids had chicken burgers and nuggets, all cooked brilliantly. Prices were reasonable, and staff were very friendly.... More

We visited 11 of us, in three families. We had a variety of orders from fish and chips, sweet and sour chicken, jacket potatoes and burgers! They coped brilliantly with the orders and it all tasted fab 😀

The cod here was lovely, nice crispy light batter and beautiful white fish. The chips were also very nice. Definitely worth a visit.

They spray the fish and chips with vinegar in a spray bottle so you cannot taste any vinegar at all - the reason why vinegar is 'glugged' onto fish and chips is so you can taste it - you get such a fine mist of vingear so you cannot taste it at all. What modern day chip ahop decants vinegar... More

Out of all the little takeaway places in Barmouth, this is by far my favourite. The staff are always friendly and well mannered. The food is always fresh and of good quality. The Harbour Fish Bar is always a must stop off point when my partner and I are in Barmouth. We will always come back.

Large portions of cod and freshly cooked chips so good that we went back a second time during our stay. Just around the corner from the harbour, there's no better place than the harbour wall to sit and take in the view whilst feeding your face. We met another customer who worked in a chippy. She also rated her Fish... More
