Blyth has so much to offer food wise. There are a nice variety of restaurants dotted around Blyth and reasonably priced taxis for those who enjoy alcohol with their meals. The takeaways are very competitive and have a lot to offer at some great prices too.

I like how the Supermarkets are close at hand and convenience stores are plentiful. Morrison’s, situated in the town centre provide some great deals, as good as Asda. I’m a great lover of fish and I love a bargain so that’s what I look for when I shop there. You can bag some amazing types of fish like salmon and rainbow trout at half the price to stick in the freezer at home. I can’t find fish as good as that anywhere else local at that great value.
Asda have now opened a superstore in Cowpen Road for those close by who seek a weekly shop or the basics. There’s no George and very little electrical products or cd’s so it’s slightly disappointing in that aspect. Five minutes down the road you will find the bigger Asda on the outskirts of town.
I often nip into Aldi to check out the bargains and interesting gadgets and sportswear on offer. There is a lot more to this store than cake, sweets and pastries, though you seem to be overwhelmed by them when you walk in. I highly recommend the pheasant and truffle pate and some of the low cost wines available are surprisingly really nice. I have never enjoyed a £2.99 bottle of wine until now! Well done Aldi.
The Coastline Cafe is great especially in the summertime. It’s always swarming with families buying ice creams and those who enjoy the traditional fish and chips. It brought a smile to my face seeing those who hired the beach huts having their beers and bbq!
