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.

Wonderful place, staff very friendly. Food delicious. Went here for the Gavin & Stacey connection, but would return for amazing fish n chips by the sea. Dropped a star because of no pickled Onions, maybe that's me being pedantic. Thanks again.

I was impressed with how friendly and helpful the staff were when I asked about allergens. This was the second place I tried as the first chip shop I tried told me they couldn’t help cross contamination. I was very relieved and my grandson enjoyed...his kids meal.More

They are still preparing and serving great fish and even better chips. I normally have the cod bites and chips but opted for the fish this time which was nice but it wasn't as filling and satisfactory as the cod bites. My daughter had the...curry and chips and said they were delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone.More

Best cod I’ve had in a long time, just superb. Little queue Saturday lunch time but worth the wait. Ordered 2 cod and chips, large curry sauce, 2 bottles of water and can on pop and came to £25.90.

Decided to have fish & chips here based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. We accepted that because of its popularity that we would have to queue. The owner, very sensibly, asked us whilst in the queue what we would be ordering. A good move to ensure...that fish & pie stocks were there ready & waiting for us. Managed to get a table….ok, so it was a bit ‘rough & ready’ but that’s what we were expecting. Hot and tasty food although I do wish they wouldn’t microwave the pies!! Good value and a good place to stop, especially inside to avoid the extremely annoying gulls!More

Worth the wait. The fish was outstanding and ‘white’. The batter crispy and light. The staff appeared happy despite the long queues. Would certainly recommend a visit.

Can't go wrong with this place. Very friendly and welcoming. Proper fish and chips in a great location overlooking the beach. You get a good portion for a fair price, tasty crispy chips with a chunky piece of fish in a fantastic batter.

I’ll keep it simple and to the point! I don’t like fish and chips, they’re greasy the batter makes me feel sick and chips are never a slight golden brown. Fish and chips shops pride themselves on this and yet they miss the mark ever...so slightly. The chips are yellow and the batter is on the darker side of golden brown. THIS PLAICE (pun intended) ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT. GOLDEN CRISP CHIPS AND THE FISH WAS CRISPY FLAKEY AND NOT GREASY!!! The side of tartar and a lemon slice added an extra touch but to be honest it didn’t need it! BEST FISH AND CHIPS I HAVE EVER HAD. Staff behind the counter were pleasant and chatty and service was quick and straight forward for a large order! can’t wait until my next visit!!!More

The food was rather average. I wouldn’t say it was of the highest quality however it was acceptable. There was a hair inside one of the chips, this wasn’t pleasant. They might need to improve their cleanliness. Not bad but not good overall. Hope to...see some improvements.More

3 chippies in a row. Naturally gravitated towards this one being a huge Gavin and Stacey fan and it didn’t disappoint. Some of the best chips I’ve had in a long time, excellent sausage and the fish looked immense. Being a seaside beach front and...riding still on the G&S wave, they could charge more but I was pleasantly surprised to get a really good portion of chips for £3.50. A large bag in Bristol can cost me £4 or more these days so this made for a nice change to getting ripped off in these types of places. Highly recommended and passing people sat outside of the chippies either side, it’s fair to say that Boofys looked a cut above and no doubt tasted a cut above. Highly recommended 10/10 Tidy !More
