Great chip shop. The only place in Cornwall where I've found PROPER cone chips. I come here often, 9/10.

We always eat here whenever we visit Truro . Lovely food, especially the delicious succulent cod. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff polite and friendly. Reasonably priced and is also licensed.

Unfortunately demand isn't enough for us to eliminate one pan of our four pan range to dedicate to a gluten free option, especially at our peak times. It isn't something we would rule out altogether though, and may be... More

Sole Plaice has been established at the same location for over 30 years as a family run business. We take great pride in the products and services we provide.All our fish stems from sustainable sources, in Russian, Norwegian or Icelandic waters. Our potatoes are local and freshly peeled and chipped every morning through rain or shine.Since opening in 1980, Sole plaice has been cooking in Beef dripping. We believe it gives a far better flavour and texture.
