Fish Quay, North Shields, NE30 1HF
Located on the bustling Fish Quay, Dodgins Yard offers up an eclectic menu to satisfy the most discerning of foodies. The industrial maritime-themed interior, with spectacular views overlooking the River Tyne, is the place to be for an extra-special dining experience. The distinct flavourings here are thanks to Dodgins Yard’s own unique blend of seasoning, and it’s this seasoning that makes each dish taste extraordinary. As well as a delicious breakfast offering with local gourmet coffee and smaller plates, there are generous portion sizes to be enjoyed here. The mixed meat plates are a real highlight and offer a choice of up to five meats, including beef brisket, flat-iron steak and merguez sausage, alongside an array of sides and sauces. Sweet potato chips, Life Buoy beans and Yard slaw are just a few of the tempting sides on offer. The sauces are bursting with flavour: the harissa, honey sauce is smoky, sweet and has a spicy kick, while the fresh garlic mayonnaise is the perfect accompaniment to the herby lamb kofta kebabs. If all of that wasn’t enough to tempt you, the craft cocktails, wine and local brews surely will. Be prepared for Dodgins Yard to rock your tastebuds.
