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.

This was exactly what we needed after a long walk. An incredibly tasty product at a sensible price (for takeaway). Also, we arrived 5 minutes after closing time for lunch and they were still kind enough to serve us, excellent service. I'd highly recommend.

Rode past at 1150 and it was shut. Fortunately they open at 1200, had fish, chips and mushy peas. Excellent food, I like having to wait for my fish to be fried rather than it being kept warm under a lamp.

Fish and chips cost 8,40. Way to much by the size and even you can't get a plastic plate and plastic fork cost 10p extra.

Always come to this fish and chip shop when in the area. Always a queue and always worth the wait. Everything is so fresh. Truly wonderful experience. If they had Michelin Stars for fish and chip shops this would would have Three Stars!!!

This is a great shop, always a queue outside before it opens at 5pm. The benefit to us is the small eating area around the back. The food is delivered fresh, straight to your table. It brings back childhood memories with white bread & butter,...More
