Shaws fish and chip shop still used traditional methods and produces the nicest chips ever. It was established around 1900 and has a café to the rear, serving excellent chip meals at really reasonable prices. The only moan I have is that it only open 11.30am to 4.30pm, so unable to have for tea!

Service is warm and friendly. Best Fish and chips, pudding, peas, chips and gravy to die for. I moved to South Africa 30+ years ago and every time I am back in Newcastle I have to go to Shaws. It is a must to go back. I will be there again soon.

Hands down best chip shop in town. The value is average, the food is excellent and the service is average if you're eating in.

I visited this chip shop after being drawn in by the inviting aroma of the cooking of the fish and chips. They have a fasility to dine inside as well as takeaways. I decided to eat inside in a special room behind the serving area. This was very full, I guess with regular customers. The fish and chips were excellent... More

We piped in for the special lunch offer and it was very good the only criticism was the vinegar was watered down and when you have such good fish n chips you do not want watered down vinegar.

We have visited Shaws several times before and have always enjoyed the fish and chips. However this time we were very disappointed with the fish, it was a funny brown colour and dry and the batter was dark brown. Several other people in at the time had fish, and the batter and fish were a totally different colour and looked... More

Stopped by for lunch with my 5yo son during half term and we really enjoyed our fish, chips and peas in the cafe. Plenty of food for both of us, all very tasty too, with a mug of tea and a can of pop all for under a tenner.
