The Tynemouth Castle Inn unveils new fish and chip takeaway and ice cream parlour

North Tyneside’s newest Fish and Chip takeaway and ice cream parlour threw open their doors on Monday lunchtime, as The Inn Collection Group launched Oswin’s and Cones at The Tynemouth Castle Inn.

Part of the multi-million-pound renovation project that saw the pub and bedrooms launch with a bang at the start of November, the new offerings are positioning themselves as the place to enjoy traditional seaside treats whilst enjoying the “stunning beauty” of Longsands Beach.

Named after the ancient King of Northumbria, Oswin’s is aiming to become the fish and chip shop of choice by offering sustainably sourced fish shop favourites, all cooked in either beef dripping or sunflower oil to allow the shop to cater for all tastes.

Staples like cod and haddock, landed in North Shields and traceable back to the boat that made the catch are all present and coated in a golden crispy batter, that the team have spent weeks perfecting in the build-up to opening. Favourites not from the sea are also on offer with the ever-reliable battered sausage, haggis and Smokey also on the menu.

There are also some ‘special treats’ as Oswin’s aims to set itself apart from the competition, with Oswin’s Crispy Mix providing a medley of cod, king prawns and squid, whilst monkfish scampi offers an “elevated and luxurious take of bite-sized goodness”.

Found next door, Cones is an ice cream parlour that fits in with the art-deco feel of The Tynemouth Castle Inn, with a traditional look and ambience that is described as “instantly recognisable”. The venue offers more than 20 flavours of gelato that are made fresh on the premises.

Alongside its array of flavours to choose from, dispensers that offer customers the opportunity to add unlimited toppings mean that each serve is set to be unique to the person ordering. Amongst delights such as Raspberry Ripple, Mint Chocolate and Espresso Martini there are ‘unique’ options including Unicorn, Cheeky Monkey and Nutella.

Building on the traditions established by parlours the world over, Cones is also ready to serve a range of hot drinks and affogatos, with seating available outside to take a moment to savour and enjoy.
