Best chips we've had in a long time

Went to Porthmadog on a rainy half term after meeting family there. First port of call was Allport's Fish and Chips which was recommended to us by our family. The chips were freshly cooked and a really god sized portion. They were some of the best chips we had had in a long time. The only... read more

Their fish and chips are OK. They offer a choice of different types of fish. They do southern fried chicken, too.

My husband loves fish and chips so when we found this was close to our holiday flag we went and grabbed ourselves a yummy supper. Lovely fish with no skin or bones, super fish with an excellent batter and husband had curry sauce with his. Highly recommended.

Been here previously, it's an award-winning chippy and the food is delicious, well portioned and reasonable. Unfortunately, the staff are very slow and only serve one person at a time. If they took fish orders as you arrived you wouldn't have to wait so long.

We smelt the delicious aroma of chips and followed our noses till we found Allports. We were not disappointed - good service, excellent freshly cooked fish with lovely crispy batter - definitely recommend it. The chips did... More

We chanced on this gem, and ordered lunch to eat at the beach. Best fish and chips ever! Not too much batter, fish was tasty, tender and moist, chips still crispy after a ten minute drive to the seaside.
