Walking along the promenade we saw lots of people eating great looking chips and I heard a man say that they were really good. We went across the road and bought regular chips and cheesy chips. Not only were the portions huge but had masses of cheese on. The man was right - the best

Called in to Chip Box 4 to sample fish and chips on the sea front. I was not disappointed, the fish was cooked to order and arrived with nice crisp batter. The chips were excellent and the portion was more than I could manage. Eaten sitting on a bench looking at the sea, what could have been better?

We stumbled across this small and busy chip shop and so glad we did! This place is a hidden gem and we LOVED our fish and chips. Reminded me of when I was little and had fish and chips on the sea front. Fish was fresh and cooked to order, chips were just as good and the curry sauce was... More

Great fish and chips. What a real fish shop should taste like. Fresh fish cooked in front of you with great batter.

Visited this takeaway at lunch time today. Ordered fish and chips £4.90. It is right on the seafront opposite the pier and waited 10 minutes as cooked to order. Walked out to the bracing sea air, the cold, the wind and rain and the seagulls hovering above me. Just about managed to finish it off and didn't need to eat... More

Here they cooked the fish while we waited, so it was hot and cooked spot on. Chips can be a difficult thing to get right. These guys know how it's done...God, we had to eat it fast, even the seagulls were after it! (Please DO NOT feed the gulls)

A definite must if on the sea front in Aberystwyth! Our little daughter loves Fish & Chips on the benches over the road from this little shop! Only let down this time was that the Mushy Peas were not ready... Don't let it slip with silly things like that!
