Went the extra mile!

Hungry Plaice were super flexible and helpful. Really thought about how they could make our event work. Brought extra portions which we needed and served cheerfully throughout our extended lunch. Oh, and the fish and chips were delicious too!

Wow, absolutely amazing

Where to start, of course when getting married there are so many things that need to be taken care of. The communication from Georgina was amazing and kept me up to speed with everything.

The van was beautiful and the food was amazing with all guests at the wedding complimenting with comments such as how tasty it was.

So thank you once again for everything and helping make our day special.

Fantastic Service and VERY nice chips!

We booked The Hungry Plaice for our corporate return to office day and could not have been happier. They arrived on time, were lovely to deal with and most importantly the food was excellent.

We had around 220 very happy people and I'd like to thank Georgina & Justin for their hard work. The van is great and I would highly recommend them for your event.

Absolutely amazing, I cannot recommend them enough

From the beginning they were absolutely amazing at communicating with me so we could get everything sorted out and I felt completely put at ease before the event. They were so helpful and flexible every step of the way. The food was absolutely amazing! Everyone was raving about how nice it was, and they were so accommodating with providing dietary options to suit every guests needs. I honestly cannot recommend them enough and I cannot wait to have them back in the future! Thank you!

Compliments to the chefs!

We used The Hungry Plaice for our wedding 28/08/21 and it was fantastic! Our guests all complimented the portion size and how tasty the fish and sausages were along with the sides of mushy peas and curry sauce… incredible! Georgina was great at answering emails and nothing was too trouble.

Would absolutely recommend!

Excellent Service - Delicious Fish & Chips

We absolutely loved the fish and chip van!

We hired them for our wedding and they were brilliant, the communication leading up to the wedding was great, they arrived promptly on the day and served up some cracking fish and chips. All the guests loved it.

Thank you for being so friendly and helping making our day special.
