Speaking of Coastline, the Guardian wrote: “A sign tells you what spud varieties are being fried, alongside properly northern portions of mushy peas, gravy and curry sauce.”

Jay Rayner said: “Certainly, a fish supper taken on the couch at home can feel like a lovely indulgence that will ease you into a food coma’s sweet embrace.

Coastline, in Blyth, has been ranked among the top 20 in the UK.

"Eaten by the sea, however, where the winds roar and the sands give way beneath your feet, there is no room for words like indulgence.

"This is food as necessity. It’s a matter of survival.

"There are good reasons why fish and chips was not rationed during both world wars. It was never just a dish; a clever combination of deep-fried battered fish and deep-fried chipped potatoes.

"It’s a matter of morale, of comfort, of identity. And the very best place to eat it is down by the sea.”
