“Shops”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

This High Street has lots of lovely little shops and is a nice change from all the clone shops of the Cities.Also plenty of places to grab a bite to eat and a cuppa.

“Quaint and Enjoyable Shopping Experience”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

My wife and I lunched in Chaplins Restaurant followed by a walk along the quaint shops along High Street. They are individual shops and my wife loved the experience. I do hope no supermarket stick their noses in the force everybody else out.

“moribund”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Admittedly we were there at night, so maybe when the shops are open, it has a different vibe, but as far as finding something to do there of an evening rather than sitting nursing a pint in a pub, forget it.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Don't, just don't. Barry High Street looks like a demilitarised zone.... Run down, depressing, just horrible...

“Lots of independent stores”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

A small but pleasant shopping area. Lots of independent retailers and not too touristy - unlike Barry Island
