Savour the taste of fish and chips from Colmans

South Shields, South Tyneside

Colmans has been tantalising taste buds at their award-winning seaside fish and chip restaurant for over 100 years.

The tempting aroma is the first thing you notice as you enter Colmans, one of England’s best-loved fish and chip restaurants.

The owners perfected their famous batter mixture in 1905 and have handed the secret recipe down through four generations of their family. It has won them multiple awards along the way, including the prestigious accolade of Best UK Restaurant in the National Fish and Chip Awards.

Enjoy your mouth-watering meal in the charming interior, surrounded by photos of Colmans’ history and its celebrity fans, from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair to Hollywood star Patrick Stewart.

Alternatively, ask for a take-away box and eat England’s favourite food in one of the nearby parks or on the pretty promenade looking out to sea.

Colmans is in South Shields, 11 miles (17.7km) east of Newcastle by road or metro. Newcastle is 2 hours 50 minutes north of London by train.
