We have visited Wales chip shop on several occasions over the years and always we have been happy with the food and service. We called in last week for the first time under the new management and was not disappointed at all with the quality of the food and the staff was extremely friendly and courteous. At last but not...

I've lived in Nuneaton all my life, Wales has always been regarded as the best chippy in the town & well worth traveling to. The lads in the office have just said that they fancied a Wale's lunch. We were informed that it had changed hands but thought we'd go anyway & give it a try. Although the chips are... More

Just been in and will never go again. I've been using this place for 20 years and it's always been a lovely place, nice polite staff. Went in tonight and was looked at by the girl serving like I'd just relieved myself on the floor. No smile or hello, i didn't think much of this. I found out that it... More

As a regular visitor to Wales Fish Shop in Nuneaton I was saddened to hear that the owners were retiring and apprehensive of the new owners. I needn't have worried. The new owners are young and vibrant that are bringing a new zest of enthusiasm to an establishment with 50 years of history. Also they have a good background within... More

I regularly use Wales for a meal before an early evening meeting and am always satisfied. I understand that it may be under new ownership and hope it does not change too much

Today i visited Wales fish shop, what an experiance. The chips melted in the mouth as did the fish. You can eat in or take away. Either is reasonably priced. The staff are polite, and efficient, with the added bonus that fish is cooked to order and there's the crinkly chips. A must for any fish and chip fan.

An old fashioned/dated throwback to the days of traditional fish and chip restaurants rarely seen these days....locally famous for its crinkle chips! Offering a basic and predictable menu....pies....fish....chips....and more chips amongst other offerings, served by friendly staff in well worn surroundings.There are better chip outlets in town however Wales has a certain honest and nostalgic charm so is worthy of...
