Used to travel down from Exeter to visit the shop further up the road, came down very recently...could not get into the usual shop-due to queue outside the door-restaurant seating area empty!! I had driven past Richards' before...but never went in--that has definitely changed now, I can assure you!!!! Found a nearby parking space..in we went, well......could NOT fault the service, the food, the cleanliness, or the politeness of the staff. My wife had Plaice and Chips with Peas......I myself had 2 large pieces of Cod and Chips,(love fish), Good grief-we had an enormous plateful of freshly-cooked, piping-hot, Fish and Chips, delivered to our table with a smile and a "thank you-enjoy".......and we ruddy well did!!!!!! The Chips were beautifully cooked....as was the lovely fish portions.....crispy light batter-with NOT a hint of soggy white slime,(as you get in some batter,)-but NOT with Richards Fish and Chips-I can tell you.......it was perfect in every way.
This Fish and Chip Shop is a credit to Paignton....you could tell this by the amount of people coming in for take-away......every person that came through the door said hello to us.......so friendly.....even on the way out-they spoke to us and said..."good-innit???"......we replied...."It's first Class"......Richards and Paignton......you have 2 new customers-see you again REALLY soon-well worth the drive from Exeter-and then some!!!!!

In the area for work purposes. Came across Richards by accident while looking for another address. Best homemade fish cake ever!

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.
