COVID Opening Update
Customers will be able to sit inside Trenchers Restaurant under our spectacular dome, enjoying our full service. There are now no restrictions on the number of guests that can sit together – booking is recommended. Our takeaway and Click & Collect service will still be available.

All Trenchers Al Fresco bookings will also have a table booking inside in case of poor weather.
Our Click & Collect service will be available seven days a week.
Following 40 years of traditional Fish & Chips at Trenchers of Whitby, winner of the UK’s Best Fish & Chip Restaurant for 2019 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 dome itself with a pianist playing on selected days.
Our menu includes Fish & Chips, Vegetarian options, grilled fish, traditional British fayre and fresh seafood. Be sure to check our specials for the catch of the day!
Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening, our spectacular pianist, Mike Weller, will be playing on the grand piano between 6pm and 9pm.
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.
Click & Collect Service
We have made it as easy as possible for you to order your favourite Trenchers dishes to takeaway. At the click of a button, you can order a collection using our ‘Click & Collect’ service.
Gluten-Free & Vegan
The range in the restaurant is home to gluten-free fryer, meaning that many of our dishes can be made gluten-free and have been marked on our menu. We also have a vegan fryer. Fried gluten-free and vegan options are not available from the seafront takeaway, but customers can enjoy gluten-free and vegan fried dishes when using Click & Collect. Please add a note to your booking.
