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

Great fish and chips and wonderfully friendly service. Cooked to order so you have to wait, but some things are worth waiting for.

What a surprise. Cooked to order. Probably the best fish & chips I've had. Chips fluffy on the inside, and crisp outside. Batter very light. We sat inside and demolished a delicious lunch.

Every one raves about Colemans Fish and Chips (They are lovely) but Smiths Chippy is also good value for money and the food is cooked to order. The fish is chunky and white. I often walk past the long queues outside Colemans and into Smiths, give it a chance and try the fish

Visited on a Tuesday at 8.15pm. Doesn't close until 10pm. No bread buns and the last sausage. Really? I come for a chippy from here often but it was as if they were in a hurry to get home and didn't want to put more sausages in or cut and butter another few buns despite having just under two hours...

Called again for fish and chips for myself and my granddaughter had chicken nuggets and chips. The fish was beautifully white, the chips golden and crisp with a soft centre, the chicken nuggets were actually pieces of chicken not the usual reformed chicken. Once again Smiths Chippy hits the mark the nest in shields.
