The Colmans Story
On behalf of our family, let us welcome you to the legendary Colmans of South Shields, the UK’s number one fish and chip restaurant. We have been serving our famous fish and chips and seafood for over four generations and have built our reputation by not compromising on quality or service. At Colmans we believe quality is not expensive, it’s priceless.
This is a chippie with a difference. At Colmans they use only wild fish from sustainable fishing grounds, the food is fried in additive free vegetable oil, and leftover oil from the deep fat fryers is collected and made into Bio fuel. Beat that.Read more
Coming from a family with more than 100 years’ experience in the industry, owner Richard Ord’s commitment to sustainability and local sourcing makes Colmans stand out from the crowd.
Colmans Fish and Chip Restaurant in South Shields is something of a local institution, but in recent years they have been elevated to the status of national treasure. The freshness of the ingredients, coupled with Colmans’ determination to protect the environment and champion local producers is directly at odds with the practices of the larger ‘fast food’ chains.
Colmans is the coastal town chippy you remember from childhood, and it’s brilliant. This is the number one fish & chip shop in Britain.
Both dishes arrived sizzling hot and in gargantuan amounts. The crunchy, crisp batter peaked and folded around the softest white fish, which was as fresh as could be.
