Had to queue for a while which to me was a good sign. I had cod and chips and chips with mushy peas. The food was really good and fresh. The only downside was the service was really rushed which I can understand as they were so busy.

By far and away the best fish and chip place (plaice?) in Swanage or maybe Dorset or maybe the South?
A bit pricey and the chaps who work there all tend to watch TV instead of concentrating on customers but, hey ho, give it a go.

Fish and chips is a must if you'r in Swanage by the sea and this is one of the best. I particularly like the way they give details of the actual fish you are eating, where it was caught etc. Fish was cooked to perfection, chips were nice and crispy, portions were generous, service was fast. What more can I say.

After a 9.5 mile trek, our preferred restaurant was not serving that evening. The Fish Plaice looked clean and inviting.
Two portions of large Cod & one chips ordered, the price being a third less than our local chippy in Romford, the quality was the best we had ever tasted 10 out of 10, we sat at a window table, our food was served up in the wrapping with wooden knives & forks, all added to a great experience, the assistants were very friendly and plenty of banter with all the customers.
Thank you.

Overall good fish and chips - they only complaint would be the chips, not very consistent, lots of scraps.
