The best thing to hit South Shields since the last Colmans 🎣
TL; DR version: Best fish and chips in the North-East.
Life in the old hound yet.
Ah, it seems like only yesterday the Newcastle lost their collective minds at the opening of chain favourites, Jamie’s Italian and Carluccios in town. We’re truly a bunch of magpies, as even though those particular hype trains seem to have passed, it’s now onto the latest new and shiny thing this season, The Botanist (NE1 5AU).
Believe the hype. Not too much to say about take away fish and chips from Colmans (Ocean Road, South Shields), other than, it was amazing. While £5.90 is the most I’ve ever paid for takeaway fish & chips - it was worth every penny. The portion size emphasizes quality over quantity, and it shows - fresh sustainably sourced and locally caught fish wrapped in super light and crispy batter. Chips with that perfect blend of fluffy inside and crispy outer layer didn’t…
First time at Gorman’s (of Westerhope) fish & chips – very nice.
