A popular steakhouse chain has revealed the opening date for its new Tynemouth restaurant.

Well-known brand Miller & Carter already runs busy steakhouses in Newcastle, Sunderland and Gosforth Park, but will open its fourth North East location in Tynemouth in just six weeks’ time.

The firm will open the new restaurant on Friday September 2 with steak-lovers sure to pack out the 150-seat venue.

It will also create 60 new jobs with roles still available working in the kitchen, on the bar and front of house.

Work has been underway since the end of June to convert the site with bosses saying visitors can expect ‘stunning surroundings’ and ‘stylish’ dining areas including an external terraced.

Miller and Carter first announced plans to open in the North Tyneside town in February when it applied for planning permission to convert the former Harvester restaurant on Preston North Road into a premium steakhouse.
