“Riley’s Fish Shack was born from our love of fresh, honest, healthy seafood from which there seemed a real shortage of in our hometown of Tynemouth. There’s so much seafood caught here, much of which people don’t know is available or which of it truly is local.” - Adam & Lucy Riley, founders and co-owners/ husband and wife.
Our venture began as a roving street food (bicycle) stall, debuting at the inaugural Tynemouth food festival, in May 2012, where along with private events and North East food events we traded for the summers of 2013/14.
We’ve challenged ourselves to minimise the environmental impact our business causes and aim to build sustainability into elements of our restaurant. From our shack, our packaging, and of course our food.
Sourcing and cooking this way means our offerings are always fresh, subject to change and once they’re gone they’re gone.
