Although it is a fish & chip restaurant, we bought ours from the attached take away. To our taste they were cooked to perfection, not greasy at all and were presented with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley, a nice touch. The portions were not what we would call large but was sufficient for our appetites. The... More

Good food and nice staff. We were given the option to buy drinks from the pub opposite and bring them to our table which was a great option :) Really liked this place and would recommend.

We visited 'The Royal Plaice' for a Fish and Chip takeaway. It tasted nice and was good quality, however I was disappointed with the portion sizes - very small! Apart from this it was nice!

When you find a restaurant in a seaside village at lunchtime you expect it to have customers if it is any good. There was no-one in, but we were made very welcome. The chips were perfect and the batter on fish cooked very well. Just to add the fish was pretty good too! Four customers came in as we were... More

Great take away. They have a cod special £3.90 perfect for the kids or a small meal. Just tucked away behind main road nears John's.

We had take away fish and chips from here whilst staying in Appledore 2 years ago and they were fantastic. Staying outside Appledore this year but we made a trip into Appledore for the delicious fish and chips. Haddock and chips come in a good size portion. Very fresh and the batter is very light. The chips are the best... More

Decided to drop in after being disappointed with the other chip shop nearby. Glad we did. Lovely tea of fish and chips with a nice gravy. Very clean and pleasant seating area. You can obtain a drink from the menu or brink your pint in from the pub opposite. More should do this. Would visit again.

The Fish and Chips we had were the best we have tasted, the chips were especially good, also prompt and friendly service. The added bonus is that you can buy your drinks across the way in the pub and bring them back into the restaurant to have with your meal. Definitely going back again
