Lovely place for fish and chips. We came here yesterday on our trip to Barry Island. Food was nice, good size portions and reasonable prices. Staff were friendly. It’s right on the sea front over looking the beach.

11:00 am - 6:00pm. However Boofys will close earlier if customers dry up (example December to February Boofys have closed at 4:00pm due to lack of customers).
