Opened in March 2018, Forsyth & Reed set out to provide top quality food created from top quality ingredients, to the modern era of the discerning diner and foodie. It’s a simple concept based on the credo: if you like the best, you naturally want to give the best. The owners mission was to create a lasting brand that simply offers a comfortable space to relax nestled in an eclectic mix of furnishings, surrounded by a modern twist on vintage style that could naturally evolve over time...this is just the beginning.
Chef and co-owner Eddie Saint was classically trained and has previously experienced the kitchens of high-end eateries and Michelin starred chefs. His take on classic breakfasts and the ability to prepare them to perfection is key to a simple concept. A touch of French cuisine, mixed in with tantalizingly British platters, bring simplistic diversity to an evolving menu. As a nod to the historic past behind the name Forsyth & Reed, and not wanting to stand motionless in time, Eddie creates Specials that will often feature the chefs love of beautifully prepared and arranged fish dishes using top local ingredients, supplied fresh from the markets at North Shields that day. The comfortable setting is supplemented by a menu that, not only delivers, but also brings the excitement that comes with change and diversity…we hope you enjoy the experience
