Great fish and chips with beer from pub

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.

My wife and I had the mini cod special. For £3.50 this is tremendous value, spotlessly clean, cooked fresh while you wait and superb fish and chips. Well done you guys, we shall return very soon!

The Royal Plaice was recommended to us when we visited Appledore recently and we weren't disappointed. We all had fish and chips then sat on the harbor to eat them, it was a great welcome to Appledore.
