I feel like I’m late to the party with my review, but after my latest meal at Riley’s I thought I’d add to the praise.
I’ve been going to Riley’s regularly since it opened, a luxury of living in the neighbourhood. I’ve never been served a poor meal or let down by the staff. The fish has always been fresh and the flavours well balanced. Today was no exception.
Is there a wait on a sunny and warm day? Yes. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, as you can see the queue from the top of the steps down to the beach. There’s even a sign telling you it’ll likely be ‘x’ number of minutes till your order is taken from the bottom of the ramp. You either accept the wait, order some drinks, and wait while enjoying the weather... or you don’t and go elsewhere. For those in a rush, there’s a McDonald’s a 10 minute drive away serving a Filet o’ Fish with your name on it. Truth be told, on a warm summer day, there’s a 30-40 minute wait for fish and chips on Front Street, places get busy in Tynemouth.
Of those options, I know where I’d rather be and it’s Riley’s.
