See above a bit disapponted, but the fish itself was really good! Chips average, good that you could sit inside.

We had take out fish & chips this evening from the Mermaid following recommendations on Trip Advisor. The fish was cooked fresh and was succulent and large, the chips were hot and wonderfully light. A great locale as the beach was just 100m away. Great place for fish'n chips at sunset.

Best fish and chips in town! We liked the food very much. There was a long queue, but we didn't had to wait long.

We managed to get a table as it was cold outside- huge queue all the time for take away meals. Excellent quality and prices. Best in Barmouth by far.

Great fish and chips! Large fish, really nicely cooked. Generous portions, good mug of tea, nice peas, gravy, curry. The queues speak for themselves really - this is a popular place, and rightly so... Well staffed as well, so don't be put off by people queuing out of the door - it won't be long before you are eating!
