Food made to order so nice and fresh, if you tell them you are eating outside they put your order in a nice tray with plastic knives and forks. The food was cooked to perfection.
Was given a bit of history about the place by a local. When the original Richard was doing the cooking it was fantastic. he then sold it and the people that took over were not in the same league and everybody thought the food was terrible. they sold out to somebody else and it was "ok". Now on to the present owner and they are now awesome! Don't sell up! Had two visits there, on the second visit if I had got there five minutes later I would not have got any as they had sold out at 7.45pm.lovely grub!

Visited here twice as it was so good. The fish is cooked to order. Good selection of fish. I had the haddock the first visit and cod the second with a pot of tea. Ample parking on the road. Few steps to get in but easy to get up.

It's been a long, long time since I've so excited about the good old potato chip!
Non oily, crunchy outside with a fluffy middle. Beautifully cooked cod, slightly oily but still delicious with the mushy peas. I had the steak and kidney pie, filling and great gravy! Worth the car journey!

Richard's Fish Cafe, a Chippy in the best old-fashioned tradition, offers a friendly service, good quality fish and there is certainly no champagne to be found in the place. Great! Take the time to admire Richard's photography on the walls and if you are also a keen snapper, have a chat about photography and make Richard's day!
