An award-winning fish and chip restaurant in Northumberland
has received the ultimate accolade from the other side of the world
Thanks to its reputation for good food and a top rating from Trip Advisor placing them as one of the best fish and chip restaurants in the country, a TV crew working for the National Geographic Channel from Australia has singled out The Harbour View in Seaton Sluice for a forthcoming travel show.
The restaurant, known for its huge servings of cod and haddock, good customer service and enormous queues every Good Friday, attracted the attention of Landfall Media’s Daniel Nikolaison who is the Producer for a new TV travel series aimed at showing Australians the very best of Britain.
Daniel and his film crew visited Harbour View with Australian explorer and TV presenter Tim Jarvis to sample the now world-famous fish and chips and to film scenes to incorporate in the new TV travel show.
“We are currently working with National Geographic Australia/New Zealand and Visit Britain on a collaborative TV series where explorer Tim Jarvis gets to see and explore the U.K in a different way,” said Daniel.” We heard very good things about the Harbour View and thought that it would appeal to our viewers back home.”
TV Presenter Tim Jarvis is an Environmental Explorer, adventurer, climber, author and documentary filmmaker. He is best known for his numerous Antarctic expeditions, and is the joint record holder for the fastest unsupported journey to the Geographic South Pole from the true edge of Antarctica.
Restaurant manager, Waseem Mir was delighted that the film crew had chosen Harbour View to highlight the best in fish and chips to travellers from the other side of the globe.
“We’re very lucky that people travel many miles to us for their fish and chips and I’m amazed and delighted that our reputation has reached Australia. I hope that like a boomerang our potential new customers from down under will keep coming back for more.”
The television travel series is due to air in the New Year and will play in Australia on the National Geographic Channel. It will also be shared across the channel’s Facebook and Instagram pages and be included on its website and National Geographic App.
