We have used this chippie for the last 9 years, all the food is fresh and not greasy, the shop is clean and the staff are all friendly. If you want food on a Friday night be prepared to wait as it usually packed which only tells you how good it is.

Not sure what has happened here but it has gone downhill. You used to be guaranteed decent fish and chips but sadly now you're lucky to get them. Have given it enough chances but sadly it's time to move on.

After going to this fish and chips regularly, for the last year we thought we'd get 4 portions of fish and chips for ourselves and our visiting parents. Only when my partner got home he noticed they'd forgotten one fish. Yes we should have rung on the night but when you have hungry guests the last thing I wanted to... More

Fantastic, speedy service which ensure that everyone one in the queue gets served within a reasonable amount of time. The fish and chips are to die for and this is complimented by the overall high class and friendly service. The food is tasty and appetising from a full range from fish- chicken sides. They have also got a huge menu... More

We were really looking forward to our fish & chips. We don't often use The Lemon Plaice but our son uses it regularly so we thought give it a go. What a disappointment, when we opened up our wrappings, the chips were luke warm, not a good start, I had to put them in the microwave, and the batter on... More

We went here one evening there was a bit of a queue but we didn't have to wait long. The food was well cooked and very tasty, portion sizes were good not to big not to small, we will be going again
