Always good food and friendly service. Best fish and chips in Borehamwood by far. If going at a busy time be prepared to queue but food is worth the wait

Don't go to any other chippie in the area. This is without doubt the best! Not posh. But reasonably priced for excellent food. Go once and you will go back again and again.

I've been purchasing F&Cs from the Golden Plaice for nigh on 20 years so about time I did a review! Consistent quality and always tasty, and fish to order as required. Wednesday night (aka fish and chip night) is always a standout. Long may George...More

They don't. But worth venturing out for.

It's a family run restaurant. They close for approximately 2 weeks in August for annual holidays. They always put a notice up in the window well in advance.
