Glasgow's Fish Plaice History

glasgow-fishplaice The Fish Plaice has been in Glasgow Cross for 42 years. We are located under the railway bridge on St Andrews Street. The Fish Plaice has been through many changes and many people have worked there over the years. Founded by John Gilmore who was an employee at the old fish market, John decided to start up on his own. John started the business while still working at the old market, until The Fish Plaice was doing enough to sustain itself.

fish-plaice The Fish Plaice has always done all its own filleting, staking, skinning and butchery. Anyone who works there has to become familiar with the anatomy of any fish or game! The shop has had as many as 17 members of staff and currently has 7 staff working on a rotational basis.
