Stayed in Appledore for a week and tried both Silvesters and The Royal Plaice. Not impressed by Silvesters but The Royal Plaice had excellent fish and Chips at a reasonable price and the ability to bring your drinks from the pub opposite is a sensible idea.

The chips tasted like oven chips, the portions were small, fish was slimey, there was no kids menu or flexibility and they only accept cash. Go to Sylvesters for proper fish and chips!

Eat in or take away, lovely fish. You can also either eat your order in the pub opposite or take your drinks from the pub into the chippy restaurant with your meal

It is a fish and chip shop with seating and an extended menu. Service was good and it was very well cooked.
