Really disappointed in this place heard so many good reviews but the chips were cold and very greasy and microwaved pies and pasties, not your traditional type of fish & chip shop

This is a fish and chip bar at a seaside caravan park. Yes, I thought the same at first, which made the experience even more surprising. The quality of food is exceptional, the roast Chicken has a coating to make your mouth water. As far...More

Fontygary Fish Bar is a family owned, family run business situated just outside Fontygary Leisure Park. We sell traditional fish and chips from March until the end of November every year. We, as a family, have owned Fontygary Fish Bar from 25 years as of 2014 and are very proud of our British approach to traditional fish and chips. We open Thursday - Sunday from the weekend of March 1st every year until Easter. We open 7 days a week then all through the summer until September, when we close on a Sunday. We then continue to open 6 days a week until the last Saturday in November. Do not hesitate to telephone us for our opening times. As of November 2017, we will be closing 2 weeks earlier on the 11th November. Due to illness, we regret that we have to close early. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thank you to all our loyal customers.
