A Whitley Bay chip shop is aiming to serve up a treat as it marks National Fish and Chip Day.

Panrinis will be marking the occasion at their seafront and Whitley Lodge shopping centre outlets with a week of fun and games, kids competition and special dishes.

They will also be giving away free peas, curry and gravy on the day itself – Friday, June 3 – and free chips between 2pm and 4pm.

Additionally they will be raising money throughout the week for the Fishermens Mission.

Sarah Taylor, of Pantrini’s, said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or ketchup.

“So celebrate British fish and chips and join in with National Fish & Chip Day on Friday, June 3rd by coming down to Pantrinis and enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday night fish supper.

“To mark the day, we have a lot going on! We have a new delicious fish dish on the menu, free peas, curry and gravy all day plus a week of fun competitions for all the family where you could win free fish and chips for a year.

“Finally we are offering FREE chips between 2pm – 4pm on the big day!!

“I look forward to serving you.”
