The portions are good and the fish is very fresh. Friendly and attentive service. But very pricey for a fish supper!

Now closed & in the process of being converted to an Argentinian steak restaurant. I await with interest to see what that will offer.

My partner and I stopped here for a £50 lunch over the weekend, and we should have just gone for a pub lunch, it would have cost us half the amount and I would have been happier. We both had fish and chips with a...More

This is one of the lady outposts of what was once a much more extensive empire including various branches in Central and South London as well as where I believe it started in the West Country. In common with fish! (what is it about chains...More

I'm sorry, I'm still trying to figure out if they mean the food or the wait staff because I saw no evidence of work. Food? More greasy than I've EVER had with fish and chips & I'm used to a bit of grease. The chips...More

Dear Lisa, Thank you for taking time to write your review – we do appreciate your feedback. We are very disappointed and sad to read your experience. We were surprised to read that our waitress was ‘flirting with the cook’... and the food description that...More

I was really excited to see a fish restaurant here but sadly the quality of the food did not match the price they charged. The flavouring of the dishes we had was not right. Our dishes were either over seasoned or bland. Service was average....More

Fish lovers flock to Richmond to enjoy the same delicious fresh seafood for which Fishworks is famed in its biggest restaurant yet. The unpretentious décor echoes the straightforward tone of the menu, which allows diners to order straight from the fish counter (or even buy something to take home). The menu changes regularly, but classics such as fish pie, zuppa del pescatore or the house speciality - a whole fish, baked or roasted for you to share - keep the regulars coming back. There's also a dedicated seafood cookery school on-site.
