The original John’s Plaice

The Original John’s Plaice, Wigton Road, Carlisle is located in the building of an old Little Chef restaurant.

That’s where the commonalities end.

For £9.75 you can feast on fresh haddock, chips and mushy peas.

Their curry sauce is the best chip-shop curry I’ve ever had.

If you ever find yourself on the Wigton road, stop in.
