Rick’s Chippy in Padstow, Cornwall

Nostalgia awaits at our fish and chip restaurant and takeaway by the quay in Padstow, Cornwall. Awaken memories of enjoying the very best fish and chips on holiday by the coast – the crunch of freshly fried batter, lashings of vinegar on your chips and some decent sauces to dunk them into.

Our menu celebrates the nation’s favourites cod and haddock alongside countless other species, like hake, bream and lemon sole, with everything cooked to order and available battered, including gluten free, or grilled. You can look forward to fish and chips done in the best way possible in Padstow.

Rick says ‘The heart of a British seafood restaurant should be great fish and chips. When done properly with excellent fish cooked in a crisp batter in beef dripping plus thick chips which have never been near a freezer, it is one of the greatest dishes of the world.’
