I love fish and chips and spend some (too many) Friday nights driving up and down the coast looking for a chippy and finding great spots to stop and eat. I tell myself it’s to get out more, but deep down, I know it’s the fish and chips calling my name!
My favourite spot EVER is the bench in Aberporth that overlooks the beach and how convenient, the chippy is just across the road. I have seen many hours pass by from here.
Further afield (from home) is Cwm yr Eglwys in Pembrokeshire. It’s a great little village and it feels quite quirky. When I go here I stop in Dinas Cross to collect the goods and then do the 3-minute drive down to Cwm yr Eglwys and park myself once again… on the bench overlooking the beach.
The Moorings in St Dogmaels is perfect a perfect spot to sit and eat your dinner. Bowen’s fish and chip shop in the village is really popular and renowned locally for the excellent food and friendly service. In fact, I live 8 miles away and make the trip often, although there are many other fish and chip shops nearby – it really is worth it!
Time this one right and you can drive to Poppit beach which is a few miles down the road. Walk off your fish supper and watch the sun go down!
There’s no reason why you can’t find your own favourite spots. The next time you’re in West Wales, stop at a chippy and wander about our country lanes for 10 minutes or so, you’re bound to find somewhere spectacular! There’s nothing quite like the cold, crisp air against your face as you take in that aroma of your vinegary treat! Hungry?
