Who doesn't love a chippy tea?

Whether you prefer cod or haddock, like mushy peas or must have a side of curry sauce, it's fair to say that one of Britain's favourite dishes is fish and chips.

If you are staying in self-catering accommodation in Northumberland over the Easter break, then why not take the opportunity to sample some of the best fish and chip suppers in the North- East.

  • Coastline Fish and Chips

Links Rd, Blyth, NE24 3PL

A local favourite in Blyth, Coastline is the best place on well, the coastline, for fish and chips. Surrounded by golden sands and beautiful dunes they do a fantastic ‘Coastline Special’ which includes either cod, haddock, or cod bites with chips, mushy peas, salad, bread and butter all served with either tea, coffee or a soft drink. Perfect for a rainy day, or if you’re lucky a scorching summer one.

  • Downey’s Fish and Chips

5 North Terrace, Seaham, SR7 7EU

A trip to Seaham wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Downey’s. Part of a bustling stretch of shops, close to the harbour, it would be easily missed if it wasn’t for the delicious scent that draws in visitors. A must-have on the menu is the langoustine scampi and of course the traditional fish and chips, accompanied by a steaming pot of tea and bread and butter.

  • Bells Fish & Chips

11 Market Place, Durham, DH1 3NE

Situated in the heart of Durham City overlooking the Market Square, this recently refurbished take-away and restaurant has great fish and chips. From a fish finger buttie to deep fried salmon, the menu offers good value for money and an ever-changing specials board. If it’s a nice day, ask for your chips unwrapped and head down to the riverbank to savour the beauty of the city at the water’s edge.

  • Pantrini’s Fish and Chips

11-13 Marine Ave, Whitley Bay, NE26 1LX

Pantrini’s has an illustrious history that can be traced all the way back to Italy. Beginning in the ice cream business, the family ventured into the fish and chip trade in 1989 and quickly caught up to the standard set by their ice cream. You can order anything from fish and chips, burgers, jacket potatoes and even macaroni cheese here.

Northumberland Coast AONB, 17-19 Main St, Seahouses, NE68 7RE

Nominated by celebrity chefs ‘The Hairy Bikers’ as their favourite fish and chip shop, Pinnacles has made a name for itself among the local community and tourists alike. Just miles from the iconic Northumberland landmark, Bamburgh Castle, this fish and chip shop also offers healthy options such as salads, pasta and chicken dishes; a refreshing alternative on a hot day. 

  • Foulis

25 Main St, Tweedmouth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, TD15 2AA

We couldn’t think of a better place to order fish and chips to go than in Berwick-upon-Tweed. With breathtaking beauty, the town is home to many fish and chip shops, however Foulis is our top choice. Set slightly back from Berwick Harbour, you can enjoy a traditional batch of fish and chips while taking in the northernmost town in England.

  • Magpies Café

14 Pier Road, Whitby, North Yorkshire, YO21 3PU

Rain or sunshine, the Magpies Café is bound to have a queue outside the door. Situated on the harbour, the café offers an impressive menu that includes salmon, sea bass and plaice, with daily specials including oysters, squid and lobster. The distinctively black and white building dates to 1750. Once a Merchant’s House and a shipping office, the building was converted into a café in 1939.
