A clean restaurant with pleasant service. Mainly fish and chips but steaks also available. Good sized portions, fish and scallops served in a light crispy batter and chips crisp on outside but soft in middle. Scrummy. You can bring in alcoholic drinks from the pub opposite.

A good portion of fish and chips for £3.50. All freshly cooked and very tasty. My son had fish cake which again was very good and freshly cooked.

Went to the Royal Plaice for my husband's birthday. There were 6 of us, all had different & it was cooked to perfection. Helped down by a drink brought from the Royal pub across the street (no traffic!). Would recommend to anyone.
