Consistently great food, great speedy service, good price. The best fish and chip shop in West Berks by far. Will always be our first choice.

Use this chippy when I fancy fish and chips. Always fresh and tasty. Flaky white cod is pretty good. Not quite North East standard but we are a long way from the sea in Newbury. Having grown up 1 mile from a fish dock have been a little spoilt. But this is good. Just order one chips for each 2... More

Please be aware the restaurant has now closed. It was always a basic cafe but gave good value and good food. The fish and chips are good from the counter.

Exactly what the title says, a great little chippy. The food is fresh cooked and always tastes great. The staff could be a little more enthusiastic but they aren't rude. If you're expecting Michelin star service and food you're obviously in the wrong place, if it's good fish and chips you want go to lemon plaice.

This is a great traditional fish in chip shop in the central of Newbury. They do a take away service or you can eat in. Perfect fish and chips beautifully cooked Highly recommended

I was driving down to the New Forest and detoured off A34 through Newbury to find some fish & chips. Like several other reviewers I didn't find the staff very friendly and had to wait ages to place my order despite it not being very busy - I nearly walked out! Once the order was taken, it was then cooked... More

Had a meal in the resturant, have been coming here on anf off for over 25 years when passing through Newbury, ambiance was poor, service was good, staff helpful, quality of food reasonable. Don't think we would bother to go again, not as good as it used to be

Nothing wrong with this plaice (excuse the pun). Food is good and price is reasonable. Waiting times are comparable to any other chippy

Food very average, long queues and surly staff who don't look you in the eye or engage with you when serving. It's our nearest chippy but not the one we use any more.
