Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic family run restaurant, first time visiting for me, family have visited several times and came highly recommended. Couldn't fault a thing. Even the music was fantastic. Vegetarian option available although I opted for a cheese pattie meal. Customer service is the best I've experienced,...exceptionally clean will definitely return. Great value for money.More

Best ever chip shop in the north east! Have visited here multiple times with family and friends and each time have received excellent food and service! Family run chippy and owner Shaz always checks to make sure food is great and that we are happy....The fish and chips is the best one in South Shields, also love their burger and my favourite - the fish cake. An absolute gem in our home town of Shields - would recommend to everyoneMore

I always love going to Frydays, the staff are wonderful and always make an effort to have a chat/get to know regulars. A lovely family run business. As for the food, I come with friends, and with family and it’s our go to fish and...chip shop. The peri peri burger and the peri peri chicken.

We were transitioning from the Metro to ferry which required passing Frydays. So glad we stopped. Chips and fish (cod bites) perfectly cooked and they even threw in some scraps. Quick and pleasant service from the staff.

Fridays is Next to the metro exchange in South Shields. There is seating indoors and outdoors and serves not just fish and chips. For this visit we just wanted to try the chips as we’d heard they were lovely. We chose a medium size, enough...to share tray. They were lovely. Next time I fancy the chippy breakfast!More
