Staith House

Gastropub in Tynemouth

Opposite the fishing quay where catches are landed daily, gastropub Staith House has a sunny beer garden, bar made from recycled timbers and an outstanding menu drawing on local, sustainable produce including seaweed foraged from Tynemouth's beaches. Seafood is the star (South Shields crab, Lindisfarne oysters, North Sea hake…) but there are also meat dishes such as Northumberland lamb rump.

Reserve 48 hours ahead for a nine-course seafood tasting menu (£70).
