“Join us for a Fish & Chip Supper”

We have been given the chance to be the very first customers in the brand new restaurant The Crab & Waltzer next to the Berkeley Tavern, just around the corner from the Playhouse Theatre. It officially opens in the second week of June.

The Crab & Waltzer have offered to serve us with a lovely fish & chip supper, bread & butter and a pot of tea all in for £10 per head. This will be served at 6pm at the end of the tour, and so we will be fed and watered in time for the 7.30pm show at the Playhouse.

Formerly the Corner House, this all-new fully-refurbished restaurant is another great asset to Whitley Bay’s new Grand Plan and YOU have the unique opportunity to be among the first to enjoy the experience. For further details visit their Facebook page >
