Whitley Bay’s coastline has been under refurbishment for some time now with lots of new places opening up from the new Premier Inn with sea views and the Crab & Waltzer which is a short walk away from Whitley Bay seafront. There has been mixed reviews since opening in Summer 2017 however it was still a place that I was eager to try.
The interior is a coastal favourite with colourful little beach huts for a children’s play area, fairy lights and fairground inspired interior including a waltzer table. I’m lucky enough to live two streets away and when I walk the dogs down the coast, I can see that it gets rather busy. If there’s one thing I love, it’s being able to see a place such as the Crab & Waltzer be surround with families having a lovely time. Alice and I was fortunate to go whilst it was pretty quiet so we grabbed ourselves a table close to the windows.
After ordering drinks, I opted for a banana milkshake whilst Alice went for a flat white coffee, we browsed the menu. We kind of already knew what we wanted so it didn’t take long however there are many choices suitable for all kind of taste buds. The food turned up quite quickly but again I think that was because it was quiet and there wasn’t many tables in front of us. Alice had the New York Cheesecake Pancakes which was topped with vanilla mascarpone, fresh blueberries and biscuit crumb whilst I went for The Waltzer Pancakes that had bananas, Nutella, peanut praline and salted caramel sauce.
Overall, our experience at the Crab & Waltzer was a really good experience. It’s a lovely place to go for brunch during the week however I know that Chloe from New Girl In Toon went about a month ago and her experience was very different. The waitresses were extremely friendly and delivered the food promptly. The pancakes were delicious and extremely filling!
I’d love to know if you’ve experienced the Crab & Waltzer. What was your experience like?
