“First class !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

We've been going to Richard;s Fish and Chip shop for years as my gran used to work there in the late 1930's (her sister owned the shop, gran is 108 now and still enjoys eating there! Aug 2012)
Every time we have friendly service and have NEVER had a bad meal, the fish is cooked superbly and not over battered, full of taste...
Richard's is our fish and chip shop of choice and we will be going there for years to come...

“Fantastic Fish Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

Richard's Fish Cafe is the best fish & chip shop locally. Lovely family run atmosphere, great chats with the friendly staff who care about the food & the service. Really generous portions - have eaten everything from fish to pies to burgers. Everything is excellant and really high quality. Can't recommend it high enough.

“not cheap as chips”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

very little to say except this is one of the worst chips shops i have ever eaten from.,the fish has to much batter and the chips are just terrible,i dont think they know how to blanch the chips before frying.The family that run it are wonderful and very friendly and the place is very clean and hygenic but i am sorry to say that they just cant cook fish and chips .

RichardsFishCafe, Owner at Richard's Fish Cafe, responded to this review, 29 July 2012
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with the food the fact is if you wish your fish to have very little batter we can fry it lightly battered, and as for our chips, we do blanch them and are very proud of our award commending us on Britains Best Chippy 2012 by Morrisons supermarket, so i very much doubt we are the worst fish & chip shop, it looks to me that you prefer greasy soggy chips and fish that is pre cooked and left to dry out in a cabinet, if this is what you want then im afraid i cannot accommodate Thank you for your review.
