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.

Have always been highly satisfied with quality of fish and chips at Rob,s but today I paid £2.70 for a regular portion of chips, this is extortion in the extreme, my regular chippy but I won’t be back.

Have to say they are the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. Every time I visit this area I have to call for my fix. I like in Merseyside and I wouldn't think twice about driving the nearly two hours trip just to...get fish and chips from here. Staff are friendly too so added bonus.More

Although the Fish and chips were nice I was disappointed with the portion size for the cost of the food wouldn’t like to see the size of a small portion of chips!

As a local we've been visiting this Chippy occasionally for many years. We are however becoming more disappointed by the quality of the food. The prices are good as obviously people are shopping around for value for money with the crisis if living. But personally...I would rather pay a bit more for better quality Fish (Cox) Chips and peas. Last two recent visits the large Cod is so thin it might as well not be their! The batter was over cooked and of a chewy consistency. The chips over cooked and chewy. Many of the chips inedible. The food quality has certainly gone down hill since the business makeover. Does Rob Parkin still own the business? Staff very friendly and helpful. Obviously hard working as is always busy without many local competitors nearby. I think maybe a bit more attention to quality ingredients may help. Seems virtually impossible to get a decent fish & chips from Rhyl to Abergele. Probably lost our valuable custom dye to poor quality food. Nevermind. Hopefully the owners can take a positive spin on reviews like this to help improve there well established business.More

This has to be the slowest service in a chip shop EVER! One really slow person serving...2 speeds, slow and stop!. It's the same every time you go in. I am now changing venue as I can't stand the painful wait. DONT use this chippy...if you are in a rush.More

Best chips, worse service ever encountered in a chip shop. My husband refuses to go . To start the food is fabulous . The staff are fabulous the service is shocking. Qued & timed on my watch to ensure I was not exsagerating. 20 minutes...and I had not moved 1 inch on the pavememt. Approx 10 people infront of me. It was 15 minutes before the first person came out. It was 40 minutes before I got to the door. Family of 4 inside had waited 1 hour for 2 x fish & chips & 2 kids meals. The girl serving lovely & pleasant however so slow. Wraps 1 piece of paper & then another. I watched at least 3 people walk out of the que. Honestly Rob's I dont know how you are making any money. 55 minutes the man in front of me waitex for 1 fish. The moral of this write up is unless you have 1 hour plus to wait for your tea dont bother. If you go up the road you will be in and out in 5 minutes.More

Great chips, nice enough fish. Personally prefer the fish from Trawlers Abergele as its thicker but prefer the chips from here. Seriously need more serving staff though during school hols, busy periods - massive queue & slow as only one girl serving. A lot of...tourists seem to use it so placing big orders which makes it worse.More
