This is a little kiosk on Penarth pier - a lovely place to stop and buy something to eat on the seats nearby. The chips we had were lovely and crispy. It was a shame we didn't have room for Joe's ice cream afterwards.

We've been waiting nearly 15 min for cheese on chips from microwave :-( When I asked for refund I have got the order straightaway. They couldn't understand why I don't wont wait any longer. No apologies given

Great location and friendly staff but the cod and chips were poor - cod cooked from frozen, watery, grey and not much fish to be found inside the batter. Chips not the best either.

Tasty ice cream but if you want the real thing, you have to go to Swansea. Jo,s is simply the best. There is one in Roath Park for Jo,s aficionados.

Perfect food to enjoy on the pier overlooking the beautiful views out to sea. A range of different options offered, from cod and chips to delicious ice creams. I tried the veggie burger and chips which was really tasty and good value for money.. Just what you need after a long walk along the beach!
