Been coming here since childhood and it hasn't changed. Lovely friendly staff. Amazing food. Only problem is they are so good there is a queue out the door in peak season. But food is definitely worth it :)

Good choice of food for both eating in and takeaway, the cafe part is not big but adequate and the service was excellent in all respects, it is very popular with locals so queues form very quickly as soon as they open .

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!...More
