consistent good quality at a good price. Friendly and helpful staff. Terrific fish and chips, but a varied menu includes pizzas, pies an kebabs.

I've been here countless times and the always deliver. The range is impressive, the quality high and the staff always cheery. It's my chippy of choice and is easily the best in the area

Cod bites and chips from Seashells are a Friday regular for our family, excellent and worth queuing for. Portions are huge but some good smaller sized and priced specials available.

Popped into my local seashells at Monkseaton tonight .It was busy, many folks waiting for their special orders of haddock, etc. I've used them for years and find their fish is freshly fried, the batter very tasty, and the chips are always well drained of fat -nothing worse than a box of soggy chips dripping with fat! I find they... More
