I'll admit that British food isn't exactly a reference of international cuisine, however this restaurant deserves a shout out because it belongs to the Loch Fyne chain of restaurants that specializes in seafood, especially oysters, and offers fresh produce and a market with an affordable menu ( around 25 pounds / person) and lunch menus that will definitely leave you well-fed for around £ 10. The glass of wine goes for about 4 pounds and the bottle between 15-30, which is too much for England. And to finish, a shot of single malt whiskey 15 years costs about 4 euros (a bargain). The Loch Fyne Gosforth is on the outskirts of Newcastle, about 15 minutes by car, next to a pleasant park of the same name, which wander if you go in spring or summer. The place is really interesting because it is an old Anglican church that retains both its wooden interior structure, the spectacular central window accompanied by huge modern windows where light pours natural and rustic stone exterior. The service is good, the bathrooms are clean and you can see the kitchen from the eating area.

Its famous oysters come directly from their own farm "Duchy Oyster Farm" on the Helford River in Cornwall, as well as other holdings in the British Isles and France. Dishes are fresh, high quality and by the hand of chef David Gingell.

Prawn on the Lawn is a casual restaurant that serves fresh seafood at an affordable price. The service is very attentive and quick. The only downside is that it smells a little fishy! The basement seating area is pretty small so I'd recommend booking a table ahead of time. I'd suggest the tuna, clam, and scallop ceviche.
