Colmans Seafood Temple opens in South Shields



The much-awaited Colmans Seafood Temple, which overlooks South Shields beach, is set to open on Friday offering what its owners describe as “a new seafood experience”.


The Ord family, which operates the popular Ocean Road chippy Colmans, has renovated the historic landmark Ghandi's Temple, creating a family restaurant that will provide a broad range of high-quality seafood dishes, a cocktail and oyster bar as well as traditional fish and chips to eat in or takeaway.

Newly appointed general manager Alex Vladoiu comments: “Colmans Seafood Temple will be different to every other fish and chip restaurant in the North East because, as well as featuring fish and chips, it will offer a range of local and sustainable seafood and will host a small plates seafood bar serving cocktails.

"The restaurant sells itself, thanks to the fabulous building and location, so we're looking forward to welcoming seafood worshippers to enjoy not only the delicious dishes, but also some unrivalled views of the North East coastline.

"Colmans has a proud, ninety-year history, with a great reputation for delivering the finest seafood, and I'm delighted to have joined at such an exciting time.”

Following in the footsteps of the Ocean Road restaurant, Colmans Seafood Temple will operate a strict environmental policy by converting all waste oil to biofuel and using high energy efficient frying ranges and equipment.

The restaurant is planning to become MSC certified, meaning the seafood stocked comes from a sustainable source, a factor which is very important for Colmans' owner, Richard Ord.

Richard adds: "We are passionate about using locally sourced produce with fishing being such a large part of the local economy, plus they are also some of the best quality ingredients you can get.”

The opening of Colmans Seafood Temple has created more than 40 jobs.
