My girlfriend and I decided to stop at this establishment for lunch on a Tuesday as, from the outside, it seemed to be the only real restaurant in immediate vicinity of the pier that was open at that point. We were slightly set back upon entry, as it appeared not to be a restaurant, but a bar, with only sofas downstairs. We were told, however, that there was seating upstairs; so there we sat. The upstairs floor, like downstairs, looked as if it had not been cleaned in several months aside from the tabletops themselves.
Next to our table was, yes, a fish tank, built into the wall: quite probably the best feature of the entire restaurant during our trip.
Orders are plaiced at the bar; so to the bar I went, to make the orders. There is a distinct lack of imagination regarding pricing: every dish is exactly the same price. The man taking our orders was not unpleasant also not exactly friendly.
The main food was actually really good: both dishes. The chips were much too soft, however, and the peas were average at best. I’m not entirely sure why they bring salt and pepper as condiments when they salt and pepper all of the dishes adequately before serving, but I suppose a little top up doesn’t hurt some. I would recommend the garlic and herb batter myself, however there is a wide range of options to choose from – another fairly good feature of the plaice.
