Decided to sit down inside for food rather than take away just chips as normal... We ordered fish and chips, paid and took a seat. We were called when our food was ready. All the food was hot and the fish was freshly cooked which was nice. The place was very busy and we managed to get a table just... More

Boofys is best. They do a cracking saveloy for the dog and the chips cone is the perfect size for a beachside snack

Really enjoyed the tasty fish and chips here whilst out with the grand children and the dogs. Very tasty chips and not at all greasy like some other "chippies" prices are reasonable considering beach front location. Staff appear very friendly and this is a very popular "plaice" for locals and tourists to the Island.

After a rather long walk, kids were a bit hungry and fancied some chips....a friend had recommended Boofys previously on a visit...so thought we would give it a try. Luckily walked up and there was a table outside which was great as we had our dog with us..I went in and ordered and to be fair it was great...good value... More

Right on the seafront this fish and chip shop won't disappoint. Lovely fish and chips and good service too. Sit at the table and chairs or have a take away and sit on the beach. A must for when you visit Barry Island.

Friendly staff, great food, nice to sit by the sea and enjoy a meal and then walk round the bay. Delicious ice cream served here as well!

I come into Barry every few weeks and THE first port of call is Boofys. I've been coming to this delicious chippy long enough that even though the staff don't know my name, they know my order (and my dog). I can't get enough of the cod bites, perfect sized cod chunks wrapped in the most crispy, light and golden... More
