What a fantastic little find on the North Shields Fishquay! Brilliant Tapas and wine offers along with great service. Expect a potential wait for a table though, as this place gets busy (understandably) The Sunday lunches are also a treat at a reasonable price.

They are child friendly and staff are great with the kids. However, I dont think they do a kids menu (possibly do a kids sunday roast) although if your going for tapas its not a big deal as your sharing dishes anyways. :)
