A superb fish and chip shop with all good cooked to order using quality ingredients. The fish is superb and the plaice to be unusual in having a sustainability policy. Worth a visit if you like quality fish and chips.

My partner and I stopped in Pitlockry for a tour and we stumbled upon The Plaice to Be. Honest to God it was the best fish and chips I've had in a LONG time. So so good. When I go back to Scotland next I definitely plan on going back here!!

Visited this chippy while staying at Killiecrankie as Pitlochry is only a 5min drive away. Great selection of food on offer and staff were very friendly. All food was cooked fresh, will eat here again when we're up that way again :)

While on holiday in Pitlochry this summer we ate from this chip shop quite a few times and we found the portions and the quality very good.

Food was cooked to order. Batter was light and crisp with a nice flavour. Thick piece of tasty haddock. Hugh was very friendly and chatted to us while our food was cooking. We'll be back.

Thank Stuart D
