    Then again, what is good for you in a fish shop? It's why they're so popular!

    Labelled "Dirty Dot's" and "chicken curry off the floor" for a reason Bob

    It wasn't 'chicken curry' off the bone but just "chicken" with curry sauce poured over it.
    Rank but necessary when mullered.

    Re: Best chippie in Wales.

    Can anyone shed light on a place in Canton called “Rabbiottis” ? This was open during the early 90’s. My father would always stop here and pick us up fish and chips , I was under the impression it was world renowned , however with hindsight I’m guessing it was the first chippy we passed on the way home.

    Dorothys is great at 2 in the morning. You would never go in there any other time.

    Following on from your recommendation, I thought I'd pop into the Crispy Cod before a job in Treorchy. Thought the cost was more than reasonable for an excellent plate of fish and chips. Thanks for the heads up!

    My one whinge about it is that it wasn't the cheapest before they put their prices up recently, but now I'd say it's in the expensive class. However, if the higher prices are going towards things like those described in the link below, then I'm happy to pay them because their fish and chip (and curries and pies!) are excellent. Don't take my word for it though, having been voted the best Fish and Chip shop in Wales, it's now one of ten nominations for the award of best in the UK.

    Had a quick shifty at the menu, can’t see a “GLUTEN FREE” option, so it’s a no from me

    I enjoy Spertoni's fish bar in Llanrumney - like previously stated loads of Bluebirds memorabilia in the shop

    My missus loves the chips from Fintans - Pentwyn

    I'm not sure the last time I went in a chippy or a fast food joint TBH. If i had to get something for tea tonight from this type of eatery, I would probably head to the KFC if its still there in City road.

    Re: Best chippie in Wales.

    First golden rule, don't go to a chippy that doesn't cook/batter the fish fresh to order. Second, don't go to one that just says 'fish' on the menu.

    Youngers in Birchgrove is excellent. Had a superb hake and chips from there last week...

    If you haven't been to a fast food joint for a while, avoid KFC. It's gone down hill and it's a long fcuking hill its gone down as well!

    Off subject but I worked in companies House between 1979 and 2011=32 years, my name is Malcolm Wilson so we share the same surname. Big fan of zero plus in canton. Oh I just went back on topic at the end.

    They've got a small coffee/ sandwich bar on Newport Road now, just next to the Immigration Offices opposite The Mercure Hotel.

    Is that in Broadlands, Bridgend?

    Re: Best chippie in Wales.

    In Cardiff you can't beat Youngers in Birchgrove for quality. Bit steep though.
    More convenient and better value for me is Rock and Malt in Canton. Pint in the Robin Hood while they're frying the fish.

    In Tenby Feccis and Park are both good but have been using the one up the road from the latter on the corner. Great value for a huge piece of fish.

    Sometimes visit zero plus after a City game as it's on my way back to the car. Plenty of award certificates and newspaper articles on the wall and a really tasty portion of chips aswell.

    Used to go to the Robin Hood and Romilly on Saturday nights quite often back in my drinking days, but that chippy was never open then - I rarely saw it open during the day as well, so I've never had anything from there. The Duke of Clarence was another Saturday night haunt and there's chippy close to where that pub used to be that has been there for at least twenty years that I've never ever seen open!

    I was in Companies House from 1976 to 1989 and your name does ring a vague bell, what section were you on in the 80s?

    The Crispy Cod is in Ton Pentre/Gelli (they also have a shop in Tonyrefail), while there is also A Fish called Rhondda shops (which is my second choice up here) in Ton Pentre/Gelli and Treorchy.

    Default from 79 to 82, databank 82 to 84, general section for the rest doing special capital. Trouble is there were two Malcolm Wilson's and we both had same birthdays. Always fancied I was the better looking ha.

    Ha I have been reading that thread with interest. Done my tree, no money in my family unfortunately but I am a distant relative of the late great Alan Rickman.
