“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Excellent fish (cod) & chips cooked to order. Local patronage pretty obvious while eating my lunchtime meal in my car in the car park. A real pity this chippie has no eat-in potential. It is what it is, a brilliant little food shack in the middle of the island of Anglesey. The only downside was the poor young girl frying the fish. Welsh was clearly her first language, her English let her down somewhat. But she can certainly cook fish & chips really well.

“Superb Cooked to order Fish and Chips”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

From the road this does not look like the sort of place to stop at - BIG MISTAKE!! The Fish was superb - freshly cooked whilst we waited. This is fish and chips at it's best, I'm only sorry we didn't find out just how good until the last night of our holiday!

There is also the added bonus of off road parking which is brilliant as it is on the A%.

Had a great chippy tea here. Fish and chips to die for. Its a shame they are not open for longer hours. But in quite location so understandable

“Best chippie on Anglesey”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

Ok, let's get this straight. There's no restaurant, it's a fish and chip takeaway. It's on the old A5. Small off road car park right next to the chippie. It looks unassuming. There's only a sandwich board outside to say its open. It's a small converted former residential property. But make no mistake, this place serves the best fish and chips on the island. The fish, cod, is fresh, firm and deliciously battered. Chips are cooked to perfection. I've used the place over a number of years and I've never had that rank fat taste.

Lunchtimes, there's a constant stream of locals who pull in. Builders, council, long haul operators, I've seen all and they go out of their way to lunch here. I do the same and will happily plan a beach walk rounded off with cod and chip lunch. Bit out of the way home, but worth it. Great batter, brilliant chips, my favourite takeaway for miles and well worth a detour.
