After going to this fish and chips regularly, for the last year we thought we'd get 4 portions of fish and chips for ourselves and our visiting parents. Only when my partner got home he noticed they'd forgotten one fish. Yes we should have rung on the night but when you have hungry guests the last thing I wanted to... More

Fantastic, speedy service which ensure that everyone one in the queue gets served within a reasonable amount of time. The fish and chips are to die for and this is complimented by the overall high class and friendly service. The food is tasty and appetising from a full range from fish- chicken sides. They have also got a huge menu... More

We were really looking forward to our fish & chips. We don't often use The Lemon Plaice but our son uses it regularly so we thought give it a go. What a disappointment, when we opened up our wrappings, the chips were luke warm, not a good start, I had to put them in the microwave, and the batter on... More

This was a last min decision on a Sunday evening to avoid cooking! It was busy when we went in and we had a little bit of a wait but the lady behind the counter apologised and seemed very effecient at clearing the backlog, the gentlemen behind the counter seemed to have no interest in the customers but kept the...

After a long wait we got home to see our food was covered in dark yellow grease which i can only imagine is dirty oil! I was actually sick after eating it as it was excessively greasy.

Several weeks ago we purchased some fish and chips at the above shop. Historically the standard of food as been first class. On this occasion however the fish was hard and dry , almost tough. This was due to the shop not being very busy and therefore the several pieces of cod that were already cooked and sat in the... More

Nice well fried fish and chips. Terrible customer service, incredibly slow, 25 min wait in the queue at 7pm on a Sunday. Heaven knows what it's like on a busy Friday night. Fish was well cooked but not sure it was cod, tasty anyway, great batter, perfectly fired chips and reasonable prices.
