We visited the week before Xmas and throughly enjoyed it. Lovely hot fresh food served while you wait. Fish and chips was just what the doctor ordered. Nicely battered, it was great.

Lovely food staff are always friendly the only thing that lets it down is not enough seating to cope with the customers you can eat I or take away

This is a great place for lunch or diner but it is always very busy so you might have to wait for a table. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the food is good.

Myself and my friend have visited your restaurant on several occasions as she is a coeliac and it's very difficult to find anywhere that provides gluten free options and I have to say we have been dissatisfied on most of our visits. Every time we order the gluten free fish and chips we are made to feel as though this... More

Oh yes, I've said it. This place is better than Page's. It really is. Food here always tastes fresh. It's consistently good, never let down by the chips (Page's problem), never run out of anything. If you love proper, old-fashioned fish, chips and peas then go here. It's the business.

Popped in for lunch. Fancied some scampi. Unfortunately they were over cooked and rock hard, which meant no succulent fish. Disappointed as have had some good meals here before.

Happened to be in Cwmbran for the first time in a long time and kinda followed my nose to this place sitting at the bus terminal. Always a good sign, I tried to get a seat for one but the place was full. Ended up with takeaway, and by far, the best fish I've had with chips in a helluva... More
