We were a group of 6 adults and two children. There was a warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant was clean. We all had different fish meals which were cooked fresh and hot. The 2 children had generous childs meals. Service was good and...More

A Friday night takeaway of two large haddock was very disappointing, with the fish overcooked and dry inside a rather greasy batter. Not a pleasant combination and we won't be going back.

Popped into the restaurant for lunch tosay. Excellent fish and chips. Great service. Large portion (my only negative would be it was too big for lunch...a lighter bite option would be nice!) When we move to Farnham in the summer we will become regulars.

Awful, awful place, avoid at all costs. The manager is a bad boss, treats his staff like trash, and has no compassion for his employees, and expects everything for little pay. Food is awful, cold, small portions, badly run, badly managed, Avoid, avoid, avoid.

I ordered small portion of chips and a small sausage. I was the only person waiting and I waited over 20 mins just for a small sausage?! I believe the staff here are bullies and make people wait on purpose either that or they just...More

This was our first - and will definitely be our last - visit to The Traditional Plaice. Our food took about 25 minutes to arrive, despite having been assured by the waitress that it would come quickly as we were in a hurry. It was...More

We were there nearly 50 mins before our food arrived. It took 15 mins for our order to be taken even though the restaurant was 1/2 full! Two ordered grilled fish served appeared to be simply microwaved. A reasonable complaint to the owner/manager resulted in...More
