National Fish and Chip Day: 11 recommendations for fish and chips in South Tyneside
While we can’t rely on good weather for the May half-term break, one thing we CAN look forward to is a chippy tea.
Whether you want to dine in or eat them from the carton, drench them in salt and vinegar or splash on some curry sauce, a chippy lunch or tea on this year’s National Fish and Chip Day (Friday, May 27) is the perfect way to start the school holiday.
But, to ask an age-old question, where does the best fish and chips in South Tyneside?
We are blessed with a great range of eateries across our towns and villages, and chip shops are no exception. With so many to choose from, we turned to the Shields Gazette readers to shout out some of the best places to go.
Here are some of the most popular choices, as previously shared on our Facebook page. Click here to add your own to the post.
