The eponymous local restaurant dynasty (dating from 1926) operates from this striking landmark overlooking the beach (a colonnaded folly, known locally as Gandhi’s Temple, dating from 1921). “Very spacious and with beautiful views”, it serves a well-rated menu, which runs from traditional fish ’n’ chips to Lindisfarne oysters and native lobster, all washed down with an extensive wine and cocktail list.

This “stunning cocktail bar with panoramic views” and “unbeatable fish and seafood” was opened by the local fish ’n’ chip dynasty two years ago and is “already a winner – a must-visit venue” on the South Tyneside seafront. It’s a “fabulous” re-purposing of a colonnaded 1931 “local folly” known as ‘Gandhi’s Temple’ – and menu highlights include an “enormous fish mixed grill”.

“Magnificent views over the North Sea” accompany a trip to this year-old new venture from the nearby fish ’n’ chip supremo, which occupies a converted landmark on the seafront. “Top fish ’n’ chips” as you’d hope, plus “local coastal cuisine as well as a cocktail and oyster bar”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
