Always on our hit list! This years only change is that Jeff has now retired, guess he will now be golfing more! Don't let the change of ownership put you off!! The Fish and Chips were perfect!! Thin crispy batter and dry crunchy chips! All cooked to order!!! No sitting around sweating and going soggy!! The fat they were cooked... More

This chip shop may be a little off the immediate promenade front but if you know where you are looking very easy to find! We had a lovely informal dinner one evening here. The chips were good and the fish was lovely! The lady who served us was very welcoming and made us feel at home here. Prices were good... More

We had a very enjoyable meal of cod & chips. The fish has the lightest batter we have ever tasted and real potato chips. Great view from the terrace, coldest beer in town and friendly owners.

This is a great little chippy serving food in an unpretentious restaurant. When the weather is kind one can sit outside and enjoy the view (subject to nobody smoking) and enjoy a value money for money fish meal! Would highly recommend the cod!

Although tucked away in a shopping centre, well worth the trouble to find. Excellent hosts and food to match. The fish & chips were excellent & drinks very reasonably priced. If you are yearning for bit of home from home this is the place to visit.

We truly enjoyed our meal at Plaice in the Sun. Aside from the great name, the restaurant offers first quality fish and chips like no other. The batter is amazingly light and crispy. The chips are made from excellent potatoes, thick cut and fried to perfection. Not greasy, not oily, just piping hot and dry outside and moist inside. We... More

Our second time here. Great fish and chips cooked to order, light batter to die for. I had a large haddock which was exceptional, my wife called it a whale. The view sitting in the sunshine looking over the Atlantic is great. Wish we had a quality choppy like this at home

I have previously been here an many occasions, however this will be my last visit. When we first arrived we almost didn't stay as it was empty. Very unusual for this place as it was always bustling. However we decided to bite the bullet. This was a mistake. We ordered, expecting the quantity and quality that we had previously experienced.... More
