What our Customers Say…

"Best fish and chips in the world? Yes It's been a while since there was an excellent fish and chip shop in Seaham and Downeys is worth the wait. Staff are friendly and the cod is so large they often have to break it in two to fit into the box. Batter is crisp and delicious and the generous portions of chips are tasty and not greasy. Extra scraps of batter sprinkled over the top makes these the most perfect fish and chips....can't recommend highly enough. Just over the road from the sea front so worth a day trip from many miles around! Visited February 2015"
Joanne S from Durham
"The best fish and chips in the North East. have visited many times and never been disappointed. No matter what day it is or what the weateher is like this place is always busy but can always find a table for you without waiting too long. The BEST fish and chips ive had in a long time. Freshly cooked to order and always cooked to perfection. Massive portions too. eat in prices are amazingly priced for the portions you get. The Sharing platters are to die for, lots of choice and portions something for everyone. The service is also really good, they are always smiling and polite no matter how busy it is. in my opionion THE BEST FISH AND CHIPS IN THE NORTH EAST Visited February 2015"
