Born and bred in Redcar but now live away. Only eat fish and chips when back visiting family so they have to be good as they’re a real treat. Olivers did not disappoint and deserves high praise for its sit down cafe. Nice atmosphere, fish fresh, batter light and chips well cooked. Really nice mushy peas. Service quick and good selection of drinks, including craft beers. Will definitely return on next trip.

Enjoyed good fish and chips following a walk on the beach. Staff were friendly, restaurant clean, and I could see they were very supportive with older guests.

As a southerner living in Yorkshire I’ve had the benefit of really great fish and chips. My local chippie is the very excellent Mr C’s in Selby. Oliver’s is somewhat similar if bigger on two sides of the street. Popular enough for standing queues, not much fun in the rain but clearly the locals think it’s worth it. Excellent chips even though they looked underdone, they weren’t. Good choice of fish and I had the regular size Oliver’s special. Plenty of food. Well cook fish in an interesting light batter that was a tad sweet. I love the light batter, none of the grey stodge between batter and fish you sometimes get in smaller chippies. Really good eating. Prices seemed reasonable although I only ate here. If you are hungry and in Redcar it’s definitely a place to try.
