“OK but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Had fish and chips and kids meals, the service was very friendly, but the fish and chips average.
Fish was a bit overcooked and very greasy, chips were not very hot. The price is expensive too for average fish and chips.

“Fish & Chips at it's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Deans Plaice was recommended by a friend, and it certainly didn't disappoint. We ordered takeaway, a medium rock & cod which was cooked to order in a light crispy batter, and generous in portion, the chips were fresh, hot & tasty, served by a very pleasant young man. A good selection of condiments. Love the blue & white bag, Good Value. and we will be back.

“traditional fish and chips beside the seaside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

cant comment on the service as we choose to eat our fish and chips strolling along the Seafront. Fish was lightly battered yet crispy and full of suculent fish. Chips were tasty too. will definately return and try out a sit down meal
