Awful, awful place, avoid at all costs. The manager is a bad boss, treats his staff like trash, and has no compassion for his employees, and expects everything for little pay. Food is awful, cold, small portions, badly run, badly managed, Avoid, avoid, avoid.

It's interesting to see the wide range of opinions on this fish & chip 'plaice'. We've used it many times over the years and have found it reliable for both the restaurant and take away. Went again last night, a Monday so very quiet. We...More

We go here about once a month for a take away fish & chips. Food is always good. They insist on cooking everything to order even on a Friday when it gets very busy so be prepared for a 20 minute wait.

Went prior to seeing Elkie Brooks and the fish and chips were enormous! I had the plaice which was perfectly cooked and loads of Chips! My husband had large cod! We could not fault the food or the service! Will definitely return!

Having worked in a chippy for a few years I cannot understand how this lovely chippy struggles with getting food from the fryer to the customer. I waited 28 mins for cod & chips - and it wasn't even that busy, and on that basis...More

Following a visit in January with family I found both the food and service sub standard in the restaurant. We ordered two main meals, a portion of chips and a white bait starter. The waitress was unsure if the white bait could be ordered as...More

Always order fish and chips as that is what this takeaway/restaurant is known for. Always eat in restaurant with friendly service. My only suggestion for improvement would be if the bread and butter offered was either chunks of bread from a larger loaf or slices...More
