Travel further down the road from the other seemingly popular fish bar to find Richard's. Good portions cooked fresh and very friendly staff. In my opinion, the locals choice!

Having eaten here for the first time this week and will not be the last!
Generous serving of battered cod and chips not greasy and so tasty one of the best pieces we have ever experienced and proper potato chips also! plenty of tartare sauce and a stonking good pot of strong tea. Thank you Andy & Sam keep up the good work!

Cant review the food as i didnt get that far.
Orderd 3 meals comming to £13 odd.wanting to pay by card was told id have to pay an extra 25p.
As ive never been charged extra for using card i told the guy i will go elsewhere. On leaving the rude fryer who had just dropped the fish in was laughing about my refusal to pay.
Well it wasnt me who lost nearly £14 for the sake of it.
Can see why the place was empty.

Chippy 50 yards away 1(with no extra charge) and cheaper.

Sorry you found the 25 pence charge such an outrage, incase you do not understand how paying by card works there is a rental charge for the machine and a charge for each transaction, we pay for the £25 per month rental but ask the customer to pay the transaction charge which on debit cards is 25 pence, I'm sorry you didn't get a chance to try our food but rest assured your fish went to a deserving and grateful home.

After reading the great reviews we thought we would try Richards as we only live down the road. My cod was large, fresh and tasty. The chips were really tasty too. My husband's pie was lovely. Thanks and keep up the good work! Jo, Cayton house B&B.

Being a regular visitor to the bay over the years, we've always used Richards for family meals - the other chippies just don't come anywhere close to them.

So pleased that quality and value for money has continued since our first visit to Richards....must be over 15-years now.

So, we're pleased to say that now we've moved into the area, we're able to spoil ourselves on a weekly basis. Love the whale sized, tasty, freshly filleted cod!
