“Tapas on the coast”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Live locally so frequent the Taphouse regularly. Excellent tapas with a British flavour. Don't leave without trying the North Shields crab with brown bread - delicious. Hot sandwiches, roasts, snacks - everything is freshly home cooked and very reasonably priced. Good range of continental beers for a local bar too. Staff are very friendly, and there is always a good atmosphere. Some small tables outside to sit and watch the ships sail by on the river.

“Brilliant!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Just discovered the Quay Tap house this past month as I would usually go with friends for a cheaper alternative like Sambucas, but its really not the same as this place!! The service is brilliant and so friendly, the food is excellent and the entertainment makes something more of your evening (Friday night). Its always a risk waiting for a table as the place is so busy, but its always worth it! Tapas is delicious especially enjoyed the spanish platter, hummus and potatas bravas with chorizo.

“Very good”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

North Shields Fish Quay seems to be having a bit of a resurgence, with a few eating places to choose from and the Taphouse is doing a great job.
Visited around 4pm on Saturday and was pleasantly suprised by the place. It wasn't busy so we got a table, no problem. Ordered drinks while we checked out the Tapas menu, deciding on the Spanish share, with an additional order of humous with flat bread.
All in all, very good and very tasty.
There was a 3 Tapas, plus bottle of wine for £17.95 offer whiched looked good value - maybe next time :-)
