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”
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”
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.
