“Chips need improving!”
Review of Prospect Plaice

Me and my wife popped in on the weekend and although the staff and service was quick and efficient the chips that we had to take away we very poor for £3 and seemed to have no quality what so ever. I've had fish from here before which has been very good but they need a good quality chip to go with it even if they are not processed on site they can get a decent chip i'm sure.

We had popped out for a stroll with our family and as you do fancied some chips by the seaside.The building itself looks very promising and lovely and clean.However it did not impress us much after that.We placed our order for 3 portions of Chips a little pot of mushy peas and three small glasses of coke.The till rang a figure up of nearly £18.00 .Im staggered at this amount .I was really hoping that this excessive price would be justified by the best chips i would ever taste.
But i would say the closest match is something from the frozen supermarket section.It was presented poorly and the £2.50 for a small glass of coke just summed up the whole experience as a average fish and chip shop with an exaggerated ego.
Im no expert or food critic but i have had much much nicer chips and really this should of cost no more than £10.00 .Granted we sat down to eat but im sorry you do not justify your excessive prices .

Our 2 families arrived together for sit down f&c at 7:15, my sister ordered for her lot then sat down - I eventually ordered for mine after quite a wait only to be told they were now only doing take aways! Had to argue with the staff that we were together which they reluctantly accepted. Food arrived that we didn't order but waitress almost insisted we did - until we argued - again - that we hadn't placed that order and it was for another table. Portions were very small and you pay an extra £1 for bread and butter and £1 for mushy peas... and £2.25 for a small cup of fizzy drink! This is a lovely little restaurant but they've not got it quite right - staff need more training in better customer service and all extras should be included in the price - the customer should leave feeling full and satisfied - not half full and ripped off...

Not impressed with the food at all. The chips were those processed, frozen variety, not very hot and not many of them. The fish was dripping in oil and the best bit was how nicely it moisturised my dry hands.

Served in a cheap polystyrene container.

At £6.50 not cheap, and I'd never eat there again.

This fish and chip restaraunt is hectically busy all day and yet is scrupulously clean and well staffed at all times. To eat in or collect and take-away results in the same high standard of meal or snack.
