Spurred on by the good reviews I went to Shields to give this one a try. A short wait as the fish is cooked to order. Looked to be a good sized portion. However on opening the paper, dreadful smell. Trying a chip and a bit of battered fish confirmed my suspicion. The cooking oil was bad. Rancid. Whole meal... More

Popped in a couple of times over Christmas, and this time met Mr Smith Snr. Again, food and service sublime. Unusually, as shop was quiet, was 'told' to bring my bike in for safekeeping. Certainly, their fishcakes hit the spot when you are out on a brutal bike ride. Once again, thanks a million - I'll be back!

I always pay a visit to Smith's when I'm in South Shields. The place is immaculate, the service is courteous and the fish are cooked to order. The best I've had in the town!

This is a great place: food cooked to order and tastes divine. Every time we come up from London, we go there. Mr Smith Jnr is an absolute gentleman. There is no better chip shop in Shields
