By the seaside

The food at the Briar Dene in Whitley Bay has reached new heights since its refurbishment by the Sir John Fitzgerald group (Crown Posada, Café Royal etc), which includes a new take-home seafood counter serving up classic fish and chips, crispy squid, battered scallops and more – perfect for enjoying on the beach across the road.

The grace of the old Edwardian building has been given a touch of New England charm. There’s an attractive terrace and chef Adrian Watson and his team of have created a varied menu ranging from contemporary seafood to twists on modern British classics with a firm focus on local produce. The inspiration for the menu is the ready availability of fresh local seafood and fantastic produce from Northumberland.
