Best Fish n chips combo with best Bass next door

A great evening to a long day of hard work. An unusually great service of delivering Cod n chips to the Dolphin pub next door whilst enjoying the best pint of Bass in Plymouth. Great combination...Well done to Platters and The Dolphin

We had a great selection of grilled fish that fulfilled our longing desire for eating something different than fish and chips in England :-) In addition the waiter was highly cordial and made our lunch a great experience.

Small restaurant serving a wide variety of fresh seafood all cooked to perfection. We all had different things and we were all pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every mouthful. Well done Platters, we'll be back!

Located just off Plymouth's historic Barbican. It has a great selection of fresh local caught fish and whilst occasionally some items may be off the menu I have never found it a problem. The fish is well cooked and delicious but don't expect any frills. Comes with chips ( or boiled potatoes). Fish Portions are large and will often include... More

Our first time at platters and was very happy. The seafood was very fresh, the service was very quick and the staff was really welcoming. Great selection and lots of fresh fish on the specials board. We had a fresh lobster which was amazing and so was the white bait starter. Highly reccomend! There seemed to be lots of regulars... More

The misses and myself popped in at this place for cod and chips ,and to compare the other fish and chip shops to this place would be insulting,first the fish is a nice size and also the portion of chips is as well compare to the other fish & chip shops down the barbican and also cheaper. Easiest the best.

There are many posh and not so hot fish restaurants around, however if you want good straightforward and plentiful fish and chips, this is the place. Apart from the standards there are some interesting specials. I tried Gurnard fillets which were excellent. A legendary Plymouth eating house for many years and still going strong.

We visited on Friday night as a group of head chefs on a fishing holiday and was utterly disappointed with not only the food but also the service. We we greeted to find the mussels had run out and therefore our table had a mixture of all the starters to share. The waiter informed us the portion size was large... More
