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.

Called at Lloyds for some food on the way home from work, I'm not from the area so did not know what to expect...the pice on the fish was half the price I pay in my locality. Whilst that impressed me, I would not have...been impressed if the quality was poor. However, I was well impressed at the quality of the food. The fish and chips were freshly cooked, well presented in a box. There was no residue of fat left on the paper after we ate the chips and my partner and I both commented on this. The chips were crispy, fresh and not dripping in fat. The fish was beautiful. We were so impressed we may well drive the 60 miles each way just to eat Lloyds fish and chips. Thank you all your food is fantasticMore

Wow what a chip shop. This has to be the best chip shop in all of Wales. We have been long time customers for years now and we can honestly say after trying most chip shops in Wales over the years nothing compares to this...excellent establishment. In every way possible it is absolutely spot on. The food is perfect and has only got better over the years. Fish and chips are cooked to perfection with light batter and non greasy and the chips are fantastic and just as they should be cooked in good oil and not palm oil which is an issue with a lot of chip shops. The prices are reasonable especially the Cod and the service is brilliant. Friendly and efficient always and very clean etc. I know of nowhere better and no where half as good. Without Lloyds we would not eat fish and chips as its not worth the money any where else and these guys never disappoint. Just please keep going in these uncertain times as we would be devasted to lose you ever. Thank you Lloyds for being there.More

Best fish and chips we have had! Beautiful batter on the snowy white fish! Also had a glass of house wine with our meal, which was very good. Also bought some rissoles to take home with us. Very tasty.

The staff were being extremely rude towards each other and the customers. not surprised because they only get less than £3 an hour! The food was extremely soggy and the chips were pale. The pie wasn't cooked properly and it was quite cold, the all...steak pie was pretty much frozen.More

Long review, but it's a weird place and I need to process it. Dining room a little odd. It is old-fashioned, has rugby shirts around the room, but also has the cutlery in hip little cups. Staff still wearing masks is fine, but not if...they talk quietly. Ordering food took a while to communicate, particularly asking for peas instead of beans, and I ordered two glasses of house white. "What sort of white?" I was asked. "Sauvingnon blanc" I said, surprised. Waiter looked in the fridge, and brought out tow open bottles of cheap-looking chardonnay. No thanks, and why ask? They have a very complex till they can't really work, but no card machine, so you gotta go out to the bank along the street. Sitting down, I didn't think I'd been charged correctly, and asked for an itemised receipt. I asked four times for this in total, each time was told Yes, each time waiter wandered off to do something else. I was having a glass of water, but was handed an empty glass. Waiter didn't notice it was empty so I followed her to get it filled. Food arrived. ENORMOUS portions of chips, which were sadly very pale, lukewarm and under-cooked. Visibly under-cooked. If they offered half the amount of better chips punters would be happier. The Withs - battered fish, chicken and steak pie - were all excellent We had far too much chips so they kindly gave us a box to take a portion home (which, once cooked in an airfryer, were excellent). I asked again for an itemised bill, and was handed a handwritten receipt for "food". Leaving, I said I thought I'd been overcharged. Waitress said I hadn't. I asked to speak to the manager. I explained our meal should have cost £30: 8+8+12+2, but I'd been charged £35 so they owed me £5. Manager and waitress then spent ages playing with the puzzling till. I kept trying to explain it was basic maths but they wouldn't engage. They had rung up the food in a really complex way, adding and removing things, whereas the maths was easy. The manager got bored and wandered over to the door. The waitress eventually handed me £3. "So we're going to split the difference?" I asked, but she didn't understand. Having spent long enough I left it at that. Lampeter is worth a look. The Shell petrol station can't be relied on to be open, but the bakery, hardware store and butchers are excellent. So is the Sainsbury's. I'm not saying don't go to Lloyds. Just expect it to be weird.More

Been trying this shop over the past 6 1/2 years - it has been consistently hit and miss over this time. Fish batter is generally greasy, sticking to chips in box. Every now and again you get a well cooked piece of fish which is...tasty, unfortunately this really is only 'every now and again'. Portion size is extremely mean for the price - they advertise small, medium and large - unfortunately this advertising is not generic to other restaurants - the large is more akin to a medium in other outlets - not sure how big the small is, but we have ordered a medium before - we've had bigger portions advertised in other shops as 'senior specials'. Chips are not always freshly cooked, and other times more like boiled and flaccid. We won't be playing russian roulette here any more.More

Unable to eat in as the restaurant hadn't opened following the lifting of Covid restrictions so our only option was a takeaway. I queried the menu that offered small, medium and large cod, and was told they had medium and large only. We ordered 2...medium and 1 large cod, with chips. That was it and there was very little change from £20. However, I had heard the food was good, so we went with it. We all took our boxes of food back to the car to eat. When I opened mine, I couldn't believe how small the piece of fish was. Goodness knows how small the 'small' size would have been, more like a fish nugget that a piece of fish no doubt. It was very disappointing, and very oily too. Whilst the chips were good and the fish inside the oily batter was nice, I felt the food was grossly overpriced for what we got as a takeaway. We all agreed that we wouldn't go back in a hurry. Really disappointed.More

Easy to order & pay online then go to pick up at your chosen time. The cod is well cooked with crispy batter and you can order medium or large to suit your appetite. There is also the option to have breaded plaice, coffee bites...or scampi. The chips are lovely - again you can order a portion size to suit you. Sweet potato fries are also available. Mushy peas are great and for the more adventurous there is also the option of curry sauce, onion gravy and pineapple fritters. If fish isn't your thing, they also do chicken and sausages and veggie rissoles. We order regularly and can highly recommend.More

Called in last night at 8:15pm, just for a portion of fish on the way home. The staff said there were 2 large fish cooked, or they could fry another size if necessary. We ordered one large fish and took it home. It was almost...cold, really chewy near the edge, greasy tasting and the portion was very small considering it was supposed to be large. I wish we'd asked them to cook a fresh portion. I have no idea how long this one had been hanging around, but definitely too long… If the staff had said it had been cooked a while and asked if we still wanted it (maybe discounted?), then at least we'd not be complaining, but seriously, it was an absolute nerve to sell it to anyone, it should've been put in the bin. Couldn't be bothered to go back, but no way am I ever going there again. Shockingly bad, probably the worst fish I've ever had, anywhere, in 60 years. OK, so it was getting close to closing time, but still… they must've known that the fish was cold, tough, and inedible.More
