TL; DR version: Best fish and chips in the North-East.
Tynemouth (NE30) has had a bit of a resurgence in the 2010s, with Front Street in particular going from a home of cheap bars, to a street bustling with quality little places to eat.
Whether it’s “best fish and chips in the North East” from Longsands, or just a quick coffee and cake from Dil and the Bear, the level and quantity of places to eat in Tynemouth seems to be increasing. Add this to one of the best beaches in the country just down the road, and you’ve got somewhere worth making a special trip to.
Hot on the heels of this year’s massively popular Spring Graze is a new festival for the area not far from Newcastle Eats home, Tynemouth. The little village is busting with some smaller producers and delis but has not seen any foodie specific events for a long time.
The inaugural food festival takes place over this coming weekend 12-13 May and features all the usual festival faces – you’ve guessed it, Spicy Monkey, old favourites New Zealand Pie Company, and Doddington Dairy to name a few, as well as a few smaller (but no less greater!) producers.
