“This is how fish and chips should be.”
Review of Gillie's Plaice

Gillie's Plaice

The fish and chips (and Scampi for my daughter) is amazing. Freshly prepared by the friendly staff just like it used to be. So nice to be able to sit inside too unlike most chippys these days.
If you are in the area and want some traditional British seaside food, then this is where to go. Accept no substitutes.

Great value, perfect chips, great quality fish, lovely light batter, friendly staff, tasty gravy (if that's your kind of thing!) & a nice clean shop & cafe. Cannot say enough positive things about this chippy. Will definitely be returning & recommending :)

I go to Gillie's Plaice every time I go to Colwyn Bay to visit family - three or four times a year. The chips are top notch - crispy on the outside, soft in the middle - and the cod is excellent - good quality fish, light batter and not at all greasy. The staff are friendly, it's clean - and there's always people (probably regulars) in the small restaurant area. Decently priced too. There are a couple of other chippies in the area but I've never had any reason to try anywhere else.
