The best fish and chips in the North East !!

If you are into fish and chips....do not miss "The Harbour View" !!. The fish are fresh and massive. This is the best fish and chips in the North East, but please note that in the Summer months, you will have to form an orderly queue to buy them !.

Having tried many of the reportedly 'good' fish and chip restaurants, I don't mind travelling to find the best and, although it is a 30 mile round trip for me AND two journeys through the Tyne Tunnel, it is still worth every penny! The fish is always perfect (large haddock being the order of day even though I've yet to... More

Brilliant. The fish is always fresh, the chips are always good. And the fish is HUGE! I can't think of anywhere else I'd go for fish and chips.

Called in for chips (and a sausage for our dog!) after a 6 mile trek around the Dene. Chips were very tasty and fresh, no complaints at all. Didn't have to wait long to get served and we would call again. We got a discount offer for Sprinkles (ice cream place) next door but we haven't used it yet. Would... More

We were taken to the shop by friends who live locally and as we live about 350 miles away I can genuinely say these were the biggest and best portion of fish and chips I have had for many years. The concept of a small portion of fish was disappointing - they had run out of large portions - until... More

First time I have been and will definitely be going back. We got two 'small' haddock and chips. They were huge! One portion would have easily been enough for us both. Freshly cooked, hot, thick, succulent fish and not at all greasy. Probably the best fish and chips for miles around.

Incredible fish and chips. It's been a long time since I've had really good fish and chips. I'm so used to greasy, soggy batter covering a 'barely there' piece of underwhelming fish. Imagine the opposite..... A huge piece of meaty, skinless haddock with a light, crispy batter and freshly cooked chunky chips. It was the best fish and chips I... More

I have been eating Fish & Chips in the Midlands and Yorkshire for over 50 years, the takeaway haddock chips and peas today were the best I have ever eaten. The fish was excellent very big, thick, large flakes and cooked to a milky perfection with very thin batter. The chips were excellent as were the peas. When we stay... More
