Best haddock and chips I have had for years. Clean, large tabled, freshly cooked grub and plenty of it. Definitely recommended

Great fish and chips with the bonus of being owned by the pub opposite. I thought it would be perfect, I ordered the food whilst my wife ordered the drinks, I was horrified to find the only ale available was draft Tetleys, Yuk!! It would be so much nicer to enjoy have had a local real ale to wash the... More

Visited with family on a Friday night. We were lucky to get two tables inside the restaurant. The decor is lovely and it was nice that we could bring drinks from the pub opposite. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Probably the best fish and chips I've had in a long time. Great value for money and... More

Visited tonight for a fish and chip supper. Sat inside and was given a friendly welcome. We all had the Royal Special which was excellent value. No bass or lemon sole tonight which was a shame but the haddock and plaice was superb. Excellent curry sauce and plenty to go around. Would definitely recommend and will visit again if I'm... More

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.
