Shawn Murray opened the doors to his new establishment Happy Plaice on North Street and the fish and chip shop has become a firm favourite among locals. What is very evident with this fish and chip shop is its commitment to catering to those with dietary restrictions. The inclusion of a gluten-free menu ensures that everyone can enjoy a delicious meal without compromising their health. By offering separate fryers, the risk of cross-contamination is eliminated, providing peace of mind to those with coeliac troubles.
While the chipper classics such as scallops and fish and chips continue to be popular choices among patrons, the menu also boasts an array of tempting options. Among them are nachos with melty cheese, a delicious treat that is sure to satisfy any craving for cheesy goodness. It’s obvious that the shop listens to its customers, as they recently introduced ‘Wexford Favourites’ rissoles based on customer feedback, and they were an instant hit. This willingness to adapt and evolve demonstrates the dedication of the team to delivering a top-notch eatery experience.
Lisa heads up a six-member team, they work diligently to ensure that every customer receives the best possible service. Shawn’s decision to establish this fish and chip shop stemmed from his observation of a gap in the market for a traditional establishment of its kind. One of the reasons Shawn enjoys operating on North Street is the vibrant food scene in the area. Despite the presence of numerous food businesses, there is ample space for everyone, each offering their own distinct offerings. The diversity and friendly competition among the establishments provide customers with an array of options to explore.
Owning a business in New Ross has proven to be a rewarding experience for Shawn. Each day brings something new, and it’s the people that make it truly special. The interactions with customers add an element of joy and make all the hard work worthwhile.
