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!
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
Our award-winning fish and chips are available takeaway via our click & collect service. To order, click the ‘Order Now’ button on this page, select the items you’d like from the menu, choose your collection time and make your payment.
To collect your order, park in one of the ‘Taxi’ bays in the Spanish City car park. Come into the restaurant from the car park entrance and give your name at the bar. Or if you’re on foot, just come straight to the bar.
Please note, we can only provide gluten-free fish and chips in our restaurant and via our click & collect service, not the takeaway shop.
