Trenchers Restaurant

Following 40 years of traditional Fish & Chips at Trenchers of Whitby, winner of the UK’s Best Fish & Chip Restaurant for 2020 as part of the National Fish and Chip Awards, we are proud to bring this institution to Whitley Bay.

Offering friendly service with a smile, Trenchers is a place the whole family will love. The restaurant notably enjoys a very special spot directly under the iconic dome itself with a pianist playing on selected days.

Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening, our spectacular pianist, Mike Waller, will be playing on the grand piano from 6pm.

Our menu includes Fish & Chips, Vegetarian options, grilled fish, traditional British fayre and fresh seafood – we also have an evening set menu that’s guaranteed to go down a treat. Be sure to check our specials for the catch of the day and have a look at our exceptional offers – we have a Kids Eat Free and OAP deal that are not to be missed.


Trenchers Takeaway

We have a separate takeaway fish and chip shop which is situated on the beach-side of the building, close to the ramp down to the beach.

Our takeaway offers traditional and delicious fish and chips, amongst lots of other chippy favourites just waiting to be picked up and enjoyed. We have a number of kid’s meals, as well as meat and vegan options, too. There really is something for everyone.
