A Northumberland pub has invested £120,000 to convert one of its outbuildings into a fish and chip shop.

The Angel Inn in Corbridge, has opened takeaway fish venue Angelfish in a building in the pub's car park.

The site has four outside tables for customers and is open Tuesdays to Saturdays throughout the year.

The menu features a traditional fish and chip offering focusing on quality over quantity, and includes cod, haddock and lemon sole, which is locally sourced from North Shields fish quay.

Angelfish is fully licensed, offering a range of Angel wines alongside beers from Wylam Brewery of Northumberland, which is also supplying ingredients for the shop's fish batter.

The pub’s managing director Kevin Laing said: “Our aim is to build a reputation for the Angel’s fish and chip shop as a cut above the norm, with the quality of the ingredients used, the way they are prepared and the service provided combining to create an experience comparable with any of the best-known fish and chip shops around the country.”

Further plans

The Angel's operators are opening a second café, just outside Newcastle-upon-Tyne, before the end of the year.

The new venue in Darras Hall is set to mirror the Italian-style theme at the company's Little Angel Café in Hexham, which opened in late 2013. It is looking to serve home baked pizzas, gelatos, salads and Italian sandwiches.
