A visit to Castaways is always a pleasure. The staff are always pleasant and welcoming and the food good, be it a toasted teacake or a full meal! The fish and chips is especially good. One of my favourite eating spots in Cwmbran.

We visited the week before Xmas and throughly enjoyed it. Lovely hot fresh food served while you wait. Fish and chips was just what the doctor ordered. Nicely battered, it was great.
