I don't feel like I am any further forward and would be grateful for any help! LOL! Whatever the reason behind it though, you just can't beat fish and chips on Good Friday (well in fact anytime when you're beside the sea) and we are delighted to be working with Pantrini's in Whitley Bay to give away a voucher for family fish n chips.
Pantini's Whitley Bay
Pantrini's is situated just a two minute walk from the beach in Whitley Bay on Marine Avenue. It is an ideal location for a family treat with play parks, the beach, the library and amusement arcades all within easy walking distance. There is free parking behind Whitley Bay Playhouse too. Pantrini's offers the option to either eat out or take away.
We decided to eat in and found there was plenty of seating both upstairs and down. The staff were wonderful with our children and took the time to chat to them about their day and bring them special seaside themed colouring sheets and crayons.
The children's meals are extremely good value - freshly cooked cod and chips with a juice drink for only £3.50 is a very good deal and we loved the special fish-shaped plates.
Sometimes I find fish and chips to be far too generous in their portion sizes and end up feeling sick! I'm pleased to see Pantrini's offer both regular cod and chips (£5.99) and a larger version (£7.29) for those with bigger appetites. The regular size was perfect for me.
Our fish and chips were wonderful, light and not at all greasy. It's not often we all have clean plates but we managed it at Pantrini's.
We were even brought our own bowl of batter which really impressed our children!
Pantrini's is a family-run business now in it's 4th generation that dates all the way back to the turn of the 20th Century (you can read about the business history here). They have strong values and always believe that the customer is at the core of their business. All of the staff we encountered were happy, friendly and genuinely seemed to care that we were made to feel welcome in their restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our fish and chips at Pantrini's and will no doubt be returning several times in the next few months, especially as the weather warms up as there's nothing like fish and chips on the beach.
