Longest wait for fish & chips. I think they had to wait for the trawler to return with the fish. Horrible staff who just leave you sat there waiting with no explanation. How does this place survive? Can only be because there is no other doing fish and chips. Food is tasteless and expensive as well.

The reviews are spot on. Like being served by slow-motion zombies but the food is unexpectedly ok

I've never been anywhere like it before. They are so slow I watched most of Britain's Got Talent waiting to be served. Next time I hatched a cunning plan to call first to place my order. This didn't work and I ended up waiting 45 minutes. I'm not sure I'd even wait this long at Rick Stein.

There are better chippys around than the Lemon Plaice. The food is good, but you'll be queueing for an age and pay more than your meal is really worth. Slightly sacrifice the quality of your fish and go somewhere where you're greeted with a smile and don't have to wait.
