Nicky's Plaice

Founded in 1961 by Nicky McLoughlin, Nicky’s Plaice stands on the West Pier as a testament to the dedication of a family deeply rooted in the fishing tradition. Evolving from a fresh fish supplier to incorporating an Open Fire Smokehouse, the business has thrived on the artistry of smoking salmon over Irish oak. Now under the stewardship of Nicky’s son, Martin, and supported by his family, Nicky’s Plaice continues its legacy, intertwined with a commitment to the community, environmental stewardship, and preserving local wildlife, reflecting a harmonious blend of tradition, family, and social responsibility.
