Walked a fair bit to get here after reading trip advisor reviews. Glad we did. Really good. Very clean, quick service and great food. We had haddock (lovely crispy batter) and chips and our daughter had chips. For dinner and 5 drinks we were just under £20. Very busy with locals getting take away which is always a good sign.

I visited Richard's Fish Cafe for the first time on 14th June 2014.
This chip shop met & exceeded all my requirements of a chippy; delicious fresh vegetarian friendly chips & great customer service.
Being a vegan the first question I asked was whether the chips were cooked in vegetable oil, & whether they were cooked separately, or with the fish products.
Not only did I get the answer I was so hoping for (that the vegetable oiled chips were fried separately from the fish that day) the lady serving then segued into a friendly chat about how surprising she found different parts of the country using different oils & how she had moved to the area from a Northern town that used beef dripping to fry the chips in.
Our order was cooked fresh & I was invited to have a seat whilst I waited. I enjoyed lovely hot chips with tasteful mushy peas and my partner also had a homemade fishcake which he said was delicious.
We will definitely be back again to this very friendly chippy that caters for vegetarians.
