Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Called for tea time fish and chips. All cooked fresh and quite few customers so a 10 minute wait. we has a large fish each and shared a portion of chips. Fish was delicious, crispy batter and fresh cooked chips. Approx £21. Brilliant.

The fish and chips are expensive . They are nothing special .The fish batter is a bit heavy and the chips not that crispy . The shop has numerous signs encouraging you to pay by cash rather than card , saying the card machine is...slow, wasn’t when I paid. Staff not that friendly . It’s handy for the nearby villages.More

Stunning food, dismal wait. Advertised as cooked in beef dripping, have to say this is the first time I have been conscious that I could taste a meaty finish where people have suggested this. Batter crispy and good chips and homemade tartare sauce. All really...impressive. Downside? 40 minute wait. Lost the will to live.More

My husband and I had cod and plaice. Lovely tasty fish, with scrumptious crispy batter. Yummy chips, and lovely homemade tartar sauce. It’s a busy fish and chip shop and I can see why. Shame we live in Essex as we would stop here regularly...if local. Thank you.More

Worst fish and chips ever ! Fish was placed on top of the chips resulting in soggy inedible chips !!! Staff were not very friendly and an expensive meal not worth £25 ! Fish was also more batter than cod

Without doubt the best Fish and Chips you can buy in Norfolk. All cooked Fresh to order, beautiful Cod and perfectly cooked chips. Well worth the drive there to enjoy such a good meal, and still good value.

We walked here from Cromer along the beach. It’s a lovely route. Friendly service, minimal wait and possibly if not definitely, the best fish and chips we’ve had on this coast line. It puts the more famous chippy in Cromer to shame. We will definitely...be back this week.More

We've been coming here for a few years now, the fish and chips are excellent quality, and the portions are generous. There's a car park just down the road towards East Runton beach (free after 6pm) so it's easier to get to than chip shops...in Sheringham or Cromer.More

We all know fish and most foods have increased in price of late but a standard bit of cod from Wills Plaice is now c.£10. The chips were soggy too. I used to like this place but they are exploiting customers. Plenty of other fish...and chip shops in Cromer or Sheringham and I recommend you save a few pounds and go to one of those establishments.More

Worst fish and chips ever, soggy chips, dry fish that was mostly batter, and they had the cheek to charge me £15 for it. Will not be returning.
