Good Friday best fish and chips: North Tyneside's eight top ranked shops, according to Google reviews

It wouldn’t be Good Friday without fish and chips and luckily for us, both Newcastle and North Tyneside are packed with choice.

The tradition of eating fish on Good Friday stems from the Christian belief that Jesus was executed on Good Friday and sacrificed his flesh for our sins.

As a result, the Vatican laid out a rule that meant Christians should abstain from eating meat on Good Friday.

Still to this day, people choose to eat fish instead of meat on Good Friday, whether they are religious or not.

With North Tyneside being such a prominent spot for fish and chips throughout the year, we have taken the top rated shops according to Google reviews to give you a guide on where to go this Friday.
