Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Me and my two teens wanted a bite to eat. We sat inside due to a rainy day. The place was quiet despite it being Easter holidays. I now know why. 3x Fish and Chips, 2 pots of Gravy, and 3 cans of pop for...£50!!! I could not believe it. I checked the recipet three times I was so taken aback. A chippy lunch had just cost the same as a sit down 2-course meal at a gastro pub the night before. Was it amazing? No. Was it stand out - awe- inspiring- best chip shop experience of our lives? No. Was it a huge portion, No (despite being charged but not asked for a large portions). It really set the tone for the whole day. I understand rising costs of running hospitality businesses, I also understand the cost of produce has risen - but this, was nothing more than 'got you where they want you' opportunism. Shameful.More

Visit once or twice every time we come to New quay, by far the best fish and chip shop there! Tried the others and not a patch on this place. Cod was so tasty, batter light and crispy ( no uncooked sludge on the inside),...and chips were gorgeous, too. Spot on every time.More

We were in New quay and needed something for lunch so as we were walking past decided to eat in. Staff were lovely and the place was clean and tidy, but the food was average at best sadly. Really generous portions, but the chips and...cod were over cooked and we ended up leaving over half of our meals. I wouldn’t choose to eat here again.More

The staff were friendly but the food wasn’t great! Pie and chips, the pie was microwaved so it was rubbery instead of flaky pastry and the burger was basic. Ok place if you are starving like we were and this was the first place we...came across. Nice location looking out over the sea!More
