A great fish and chip restaurant with Diner styling!
The chips are fresh and cooked to perfection, the fish is also deliscious. A great little business, no table booking system though and always busy especially on market day!

Best fish and chips in Machynlleth, I've always gone to Dicks Diner for my food as i always have great service from the staff and have a civil conversation with the chef. I wouldn't recommend going to the top chippy, as the chips there are under cooked and the portions are rubbish for what you pay for. Dicks Diner is a great place to have fish, chips and ice cream in summer.
The previous comment are absolutely appalling and ridiculous.

“Very Poor Indeed!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

This is a take away and fish & chip restaurant which I have used several times on traveling through Machynlleth. The standard of meal here has really deteriorated to the point that I no longer wish to use it. The chips have always tasted warmed up from yesterday with the ends of the chips being very sharp indeed. The fish is always swamped with brown fat which has the look of not having been changed for some time. The tea tends to be cold with the colour of mud and the coffee is even worse.
The service is also very poor in my experience. The staff tend to ignore your existence when making a complaint and their appearance tends to be most unsuitable for an eating establishment.
I was onced served by a very untidy looking young man who's trousers revealed most of his under pants.
I find it difficult to say anything positive about this establishment apart from it's furnishings as I feel that it should be brought under new management in order to bring about a good service for the traveling public. I am sorry to be so blunt but I feel that the public should not be subjected to this!
