I took two young children with me, and was delighted with the reception we recieved from the staff. Although not child orientated, the restaurant does provide a CLEAN highchair (a novelty in many restaurants).
Our food order was taken efficiently and the food, whilst cooked to order, arrived soon after. The portions were just right, both adult and childrens', and the food delicious. The staff were conscious of their diners and quick to offer further service as required, but never overpowering.
The view from the windows over the castle keep and down the market square is timeless and beautiful. The general ambiance of the small restaurant is relaxing and calm - perfect after a busy morning exploring the many and varied small lanes and footpaths, not to mention the climb up from the River Swale!
I think this calm environment helped to ensure that the children in my care remained relaxed too - indeed their behaviour was praised by two parties of diners as we left

Called in for lunch yesterday. The cod bites were indeed hot, crispy and very tasty. The chips were fantastic, full of flavour, hot and crispy. Only the haddock was a letdown. This had obviously been sitting around for ages and was cold and soggy. The service was not great. We only ordered 2 meals and that confused the guy serving and he still got it wrong when he served the food. All in all though, well worth the visit.

What a find..stopped off at Richmond for a late tea, and after a stroll around market place selected Barkers Fish & Chip Restaurant,and we didnt expect much, but WOW, the food, and service was absolutely excellent! my personal choice was cod bites and when it arrived i was thrilled to bits, it was home cooked and plenty of it, and it came with a salad which consisted of kiwi fruit, strawberrys, pineapple as well as the regular salad items and chips. We will definetley visit here again and would not hesitate on recommending Barkers to anyone.

Near the Greeen Howard Museum and The Castle this unpretentious take-away cafe and first floor restaurant was a real find at lunchtime.. The fish and chips were fresh and superb , the service was excellent and at £14 for two with coffee excellent value. If you want to treat yourself I noticed they also served wine.
