I've been coming to this Chippy for over 40 years! The best fish and chips and I would not dream of holidaying in Porthmadog without at least one visit for fish and chips! Lovely crisp batter, not greasy and soggy! Chips are very delicious too! A can of dandelion and burdock washes it down perfectly! See you next time we... More

We had fish and chips here to take away. There is always a queue as it is very popular. I had Haddock (which you have to order) and a fish cake. My wife had cod. The food was very good and we would definitely use this place again.

We were a group of 13 that called ahead to order some fish and chips. The lovely couple that ran the cippy stayed open and extra 30 mins after closing time to serve us. We sat by the beach in Criccieth enjoying the fish and chips. The fish is so tender and the chips we cooked to perfection, and all... More

Had the Haddock Fish and Chips. We arrived on Tuesday night about 6:30PM and sat in the back dining room. The generous portion of fish was very flaky and tender. The fish was some of the best we have had and it is not expensive. The back dining room is not very large with simple décor and limited seating. As... More
