Longsands Fish Kitchen: Tynemouth: Review



Another blog post..another foodie review! One of my favourite things to do is to go out for food with my friends,family and my boyfriend James. James works away through the week so on a weekend we try to spend as much time as possible together and have cute little days out. A few weeks ago we had a lush day out in Tynemouth walking around the beach and of course eating food.  


After walking along the beach we really fancied Fish and Chips. We search along Tynemouth front street for the perfect place and came across 'Longsands Fish Kitchen'. It was so busy so of course, I had to see what all the fuss was about. It had a little takeout part attached to the restaurant but I was freezing after walking along the beach so I persuaded James to go into the restaurant. 


The restaurant was really busy but the waitress explained if we waited around 20 minutes there would be a table free. Of course, we waited. I was taken in by the clean, whitewashed walls, bright lighting and cute little marble top bar in the middle of the restaurant. After been handed a menu and seeing all the food come out of the kitchen, I was eager to sit down and tuck in myself. 


Although the menu has a wide variety of fish choices: mussels, lobster, salmon, prawn, shrimp etc. I knew I just wanted something from the traditional part of the menu. I'm not really a fish lover HOWEVER when it comes to battered fish, I'm obsessed! In my house it's a traditional to get fish and chips from the local shop every Friday! I've been trying to avoid it since starting to eat the leanin15 meals mind but everyone deserves a treat every now and again right?


























I decided go to for the traditional cod and chips and of course with mush peas on the side. FAV! James hummed and hard for a fair few minutes about what to get because he likes all types of fish but aswell went for the cod and chips but instead curry sauce. The waitress that served us was very friendly and food was served in a flash considering it was mid day on a Saturday.  



The portions that came were huge and it really was 
mouthwatering. I tried my best to finish it all but I was ready to exploded. James of course couldn't let it go to waste so polished mine off to. I have to admit although I did get the mushy peas, the curry sauce was AMAZING! I kept dipping my chips into James's sauce when he wasn't looking. Whoops! The chips were cooked to perfection and the fish melted in your mouth. The batter was so nice and crispy with no grease at all. For all you vegetarians out their 'Longsands' doesn't use beef dripping in their oil so all their fried food is also suitable for you to. BONUS! 

Although my first thoughts were when looking at the menu, the fish and chips were quite expensive at £7.50. The taste, the serves, the portions size and the restaurant really was spot on and well worth the cost. 


'Longsands Fish Kitchen' was an awesome little find and I literally couldn't fault it. I can't wait to visit again soon and bring my dad along, he's a sucker for fish and chips. I might have to come on an empty stomach to fit in one of their desserts aswell mind. The 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream sounds AMAZINNNNNNNNNNG! 


We parked near to the aquarium so we had a long walk back to the car but what better way to burn off the food and take in the beautiful views of Tynemouth.


If your visit Newcastle and looking to plan your visit, Tynemouth is such a cute place to come and explore. It's about 20 minutes from the City Centre in the car and you can get a train which stops actually at Tynemouth. There are so many lovely walks, shops, places to eat and the beach is super nice. 


Are you a fish lover?
