“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Best chip shop in Ocean Road. Reasonably priced compared to colemans and good staff. And a recommendation from Keith Chegwin ha! Try it.

“Yum yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Get the spam fritters....absolutely brilliant! Be patient as everything is cooked to order. Batter is the lightest and crispiest you will find. Nuff said :-)

“Best chippy south of the Tyne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

As far as chip shops go this is a little gem. The staff were very busy yet very polite and professional. Our order was freshly cooked without having to wait to long and the chips were delicious fish cakes are huge and everyone in our party were very impressed. If you want proper chips when out and about in South Shields walk straight into this place and back out with a good size portion of their chips.

“Addicted to Smiths chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I always visit this chippy for a fish & chip treat. The staff are friendly the food never fails for something abit different to haddock and cod I recommend the sweet william...its amazing I crave it when in stock...on one occasion I have been in twice in one week for it and had to stop myself from returning for a third time. I wouldnt go anywhere else now...amazing.
