“Awesome little chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Exactly what the title says, a great little chippy.
The food is fresh cooked and always tastes great.
The staff could be a little more enthusiastic but they aren't rude.
If you're expecting Michelin star service and food you're obviously in the wrong place, if it's good fish and chips you want go to lemon plaice.

“great fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is a great traditional fish in chip shop in the central of Newbury. They do a take away service or you can eat in.

Perfect fish and chips beautifully cooked

Highly recommended

“Not the fastest plaice...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I was driving down to the New Forest and detoured off A34 through Newbury to find some fish & chips. Like several other reviewers I didn't find the staff very friendly and had to wait ages to place my order despite it not being very busy - I nearly walked out! Once the order was taken, it was then cooked to order in a reasonable time. Small cod were "off", but the haddock was well cooked and the chips fine. On balance, if I was in a hurry I'd not go again, but the food was perfectly decent and priced averagely for Southern England.

“A fair meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Had a meal in the resturant, have been coming here on anf off for over 25 years when passing through Newbury, ambiance was poor, service was good, staff helpful, quality of food reasonable. Don't think we would bother to go again, not as good as it used to be
