“Best Chippy EVER!”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

This is possibly THE Best chippy on the planet.

We've returned to Criccieth for the past 3 yrs just to have fish n chips from here and eat them out of the paper overlooking the sea watching the jets fly over.

Simply outstanding.

In fact, I've been tempted to make the 300 miles round trip (ish) from Manchester just to eat their fish and chips.

“excellent”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Have been going here for 27 years. It's been great to see the tradition of high standards passed on/carried on in the family. Wonder what the issues were with the bad revues - noticed one reviewer gave other places in Criccieth bad reviews. Can't please some people. I've NEVER had a problem here. Everything is always great, & I have very high standards but also relax when I'm on holiday which helps.

“First class fish & chips in Criccieth”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Anytime im passing through Criccieth, and looking for a bite to eat then Castle fish & chips is really the place to stop off at! Having tried numerous fish bars in the area, this one really stands out above the rest.. This place is worth the wait (as it gets super busy) during the summer, but the queue is justified! The portions here are just right, not too much or too little, and the food is cooked to timely perfection. The food here is always fresh, never stewed! Staff are really friendly & heplful and despite the queues the service is fast. If your travelling/ touring through Criccieth and want to sample some proper traditional fish & chips, then this is the spot! The fish bar is also perfectly situated for the castle & sea front (so when you fancy walking off the grub, both are an easy walk to get too)

“Never disappoints!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

I've been visiting this chip shop since I was a little girl holidaying in Morfa Buchan. Now quite a lot older with a teenage son of our own, the fish and chips are still the best, perfect portion size for me, and just as good as I remember them!
No holiday in the Porthmadog area is complete without a visit to Criccieth for Fish and Chips! It's an institution!

“Very good seaside fish and chips”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Well after reading all the other reviews they certainly lived up to them. Best fish and chips we've had in a long time. Was staying down in Criccieth for October half term, visited the chip shop twice, both times very busy, staff friendly too.
