We regularly use The Lemon Plaice. The staff are always friendly and the food is cooked fresh, so be prepared for a wait sometimes.

The youth group visited here as part of their chip shop survey. Always get great service here and the chips were amazing! Great too at catering for large parties

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.
