Whether you eat in or take away you won't be disappointed! The staff are friendly, the whole place is spotless and the food is outstanding. That's why we keep going back. A trip to Porthcawl isn't the same with out fish & chips from Beales!!!

This is the second visit to Beatles and my wife and I absolutely love this place, fantastic fish and chips. You always have to queue to get in that goes to show just how popular this place is, we love it.
