It’s Good Friday and so to celebrate we’ve put together some of our favourite places to grab a little dishy of fishy in and around town…
Stack, Pilgrim St
Offering the finest quality ingredients Mother Nature can provide and just steps from Monument in the trendy new Stack shipping container village, Gill’s Fish and Chips is a must this long weekend. Grab a scrumptious bite and soak up the springtime sunshine at this bustling social hub in the heart of the city centre.
Head to this intimate bistro hangout for sublime seafood specialities down by Newcastle’s picturesque Quayside. Their classic Fish and Chips is served with beer batter, minted mushy peas and chunky home-made chips – delish! Plus, students get 10% off all food & drink.
One of the oldest pubs in leafy Ouseburn, The Ship Inn offers some of the very best vegan scran in town, and its marinated tofu ‘Fish’ & Chips’ is no exception! Dine alfresco this sunny Good Friday and enjoy tip-top plant based eats before walking it off with a stroll along the canal or around friendly Ouseburn Farm.
Putting a unique twist on the great British fish and chip meal, George’s offer a full menu of themed options to choose from. Try something new with Mushy Pea Fritters to start, before tucking in to a hearty helping of Ocean Cod in Onion Bhaji Batter.
Or, cast your net a little wider and try one of these exceptional seaside eateries…
Enjoy your coastal cuisine overlooking a beautiful blue flag beach. A family run business since 1926, Colmans are proud to support the local fishermen who land their fresh fish daily, using low impact fishing methods that preserve our marine environment.
North Shields Fish Quay
With fresh catches gracing the plates of lucky diners daily, North Shields’ Fish Quay is definitely the place to be if you’re a seafood fan. Delight in the Fish Quay’s lively atmosphere before heading to The Waterfront to chow down on some of the freshest, tastiest fish & chips around.
Finally, although currently closed for refurbishment (so sadly a no-go for Good Friday dinners!), no North East fish and chips roundup would be complete without a nod to Riley’s. Perfectly positioned in a small sandy bay enclosed by cliffs, Riley’s is well worth a hop on the Metro to Tynemouth!
