Best chippy in Porthmadog

Consistently excellent fish. Often queues out of the door which is always a good sign. Very popular with locals. Good value

Staying at the Travelodge and needing simple food, a sausage and chips from Allports was ideal. Obvious choice when in Porthmadog on a wet night.

I have visited this chippy on many occasions and I have to say it's gone to the dogs. I have always rated this chippy as one of the best in wales, however on this visit today I am shocked, I had sausage, chips and curry sauce but there were very few chips, I also ordered fish, chips and curry sauce...

Always freshly made and delicious. Parking is tricky, but don't be put off ..... you can park at the back of Wilkinson's and walk through - it's worth it x

Fish was cooked to order, and service was fast. The meal itself was delicious, so I'm glad the choppy down in the village we are staying was closed, or we wouldn't have had this.

Well there is something about the seaside that makes you yearn for fish n chips. Had the fish of the day meal deal which came with a hot drink and bread n butter. Nice light batter and decent chips

Been going to Allports for years, every time we visit Porthmadog. Sadly this time was a considerable disappointment. It was a quiet mid week evening so the shop not busy, but surely a chippie hoping to stay the best should concentrate on the quality whether it's for a big queue round the corner or just a couple of folk in...

We had to feed 7 people and this chip shop was recommended. Service was quick and staff were friendly. Food was very nice and portions were enough.

Landlady of our rental property recommended this chippy, they use it every time they visit. We always have fish & chips on our last night so it was good to be told about one locally. Easy parking & the street it is in is not called Snowdon Street for nothing - there is a great view of the mountain from... More
