This is like no fish&chip shop that you will remember as a child if you're a certain age. Appears to be very busy,and the staff are really energetic,very friendly and passionate about how they serve the community. And if you ring ahead for your order,they will have it ready for you without any fuss..

We moved to Abersychan recently and finding this place up the road has been a real bonus! The prices are amazing, the place is spotlessly clean, and the staff are just lovely girls. Great portion sizes too. Keep it up ladies, thanks.

Love this place. You go in, you ask for a fish, you get a beast of a fish in size, that tastes awesome, as do the chips. Really good fish and chip shop that is one of the best, if not the best I have ever purchased from. Quite astonishing considering the place is some 15+ miles inland from the... More
