Reviewed 12 June 2014

Excellent as usual. Unless you are hungry share the chips.
One of the chip shops anywhere always good. Ask for a small amount of salt unless you want a lot!

“capable of very good fish and chips but not always”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We had fish and chips here one late afternoon and again the following lunchtime. In the afternoon, the fish had stood for some time and the chips seemed to have been cooked in rather old oil or fat. Next day things were much better. The food was freshly cooked, the chips fine and the cod very good, although it took at least 10 minutes to get served.

“Allways seem to get our chips from here”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Each time we visit Porthmadog we get some chips from Allports on Snowden street and then take them to the harbour to eat, it seems to have become a tradition.

The chips are very nice and they do a wide range of chip shop style foods that look good.

Nothing much else to say apart from we will be returning next time we are in town.

Recommended.

“Fish was great chips were not”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Had fish and chips here and the battered cod and breaded plaice were as nice as you get. Sadly though the chips were not up to the standard of previous visits as they were very greasy and soggy. A shame really.

Thank you for the recent post, it's frustrating for regular customers to be disappointed when returning to support us, we take all feedback seriously and have a continuous improvement approach to all aspects of our business, again a time and date of the visit is very helpful in addressing issues or even better return to the shop and allow us to redress the matter directly.

“Not the best”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Decided we had to have fish and chips one night during our recent stay in Porthmadog and chose Allport's based on reviews here. Sadly, whilst the chips were good we found the haddock disappointing, rather dry and lacking in the flavour we expected. Perhaps we were just unlucky?

Thank you for the feedback on your visit posted to us on the 24th of May, It's disappointing that we did not surpass your expectations on this occasion, it would be very helpful if revisers could be specific about the time and date of the visit in order to deal with issues effectively or return to the shop at the time so that we can deal with the matter immediately.
