About Riley's Fish Shack
Fabulous Fish, Locally Caught, Simply Served is the way we describe the food we cook, Riley’s Fish Shack was inspired by various elements but more than any, the shortage of healthy seafood in our home town (village) of Tynemouth. We have lived here for the best part of a decade and the only seafood I have seen comes in a coating of batter and, don’t get me wrong, I love a good plate of fish and chips but there’s so much more seafood caught here and people don’t know it’s available or which of it truly is local.
We source all our fish from North Shields Fish Market, prepare it and cook it over real charcoal from our bicycle powered stall. One of our more popular dishes is the Mackerel Wrap, closely followed by Monkfish and our ‘squid on a stick’. We love to chargrill Lobster as it concentrates the juices within and is fingerlickingly good, ‘The best Lobster I have ever tasted’ were the words of Rob Latimer of the acclaimed Latimer’s Seafood Deli in Whitburn.
We have a jam packed summer ahead, full of festivals, events and private hires. In addition to these events, we are putting on a monthly Pop-Up Restaurant each in a different location. This is where we take over the kitchen of the chosen venue (if it has one) and present a seafood meal like no other.
Keep an eye out for our events and perhaps you’ll catch us down on the beach in Tynemouth this summer too
