The owner personally delivered an order of 20 meals to our care home for the residents. Good value and a mix of tasty dishes such as cod, fish cakes, pies and battered sausage. They do a child portion of chips, which suits our smaller appetites.

We regularly use The Lemon Plaice. The staff are always friendly and the food is cooked fresh, so be prepared for a wait sometimes.

Not sure what has happened here but it has gone downhill. You used to be guaranteed decent fish and chips but sadly now you're lucky to get them. Have given it enough chances but sadly it's time to move on.
