  • The only reason Grotvendor it number 1 on tripadvisor is because they get people to help remove the poor reviews. So not number 1 at all. Been in a few time - the food is only average - the new chip stall on the market it better (and cheaper).

  • Sorry crissy. According to this rag, Tony's fish and chip shop is no longer in Gorleston. It is in Yarmouth. GOT TO GIVE YARMOUTH CREDIT WHEN IT IS NOT DUE. Isnt that right editor ?

  • Another two excellent Norwich shops would be Larkman Lane Fish & Chips and the one at the bottom of Long John Hill.

  • Well Edwards. You are the editor of this rag. Are you going to change the article so that My Plaice is in Gorleston or is it a case this rag is only concerned with grotty Yarmouth, and someone on the council is leaning on you ?

  • The Grosvenor is a winner for sure, I mean where else can you buy your fish and chips then frequent at the Birdcage Pub opposite and sink a few pints with your meal. Winning Combo :)

  • I am totally in agreement with V, My plaice is a fantastic place to get your fish and chips from, Yes it is Gorleston on Sea, and not Yarmouth, and I don't think it right we should be standing for this. It is becoming more and more frequent that something good in Gorleston or Bradwell becomes Yarmouth more and more just so it gets the recognition.

  • Definitely the Grosvenor value, taste, lovely service. Loving the downstairs restaurant, brilliant and even toilets, no other fish shops can compete with that.

  • French,s at wells isn't anything special, there are loads of good fish and chip plaices in Norfolk and a lot of bad ones too. Mary Jane's in cromer is pretty good and the chippy at horsford as well they never get a mention.

  • Lets get one thing straight. My Plaice is in GORLESTON-ON-SEA, NOT Yarmouth. Do not give Yarmouth credit when it is not due.

  • The Grosvenor at the bottom of Lower Goat Lane is absolutely fantastic, it has become a real focal point to the Norwich Lanes . It has a cool, friendly to-one-and-all funky atmosphere and the food is unbelievably good . It is good value and imaginative, fun without being pretentious. Got to be a winner. Check out it's Undercroft seating downstairs, brilliant
