Catering And Events Firm Branches Out With Seafront Bistro
A leading North East catering and hospitality firm is diversifying its operation with the launch of a new seafront bistro.
1879 Events Management, a subsidiary of Sunderland AFC, has opened The Beach House at Marine Walk, Roker - marking its weekend launch with a special family fun day attended by hundreds of guests.
The company, which was established in 2012, already manages catering and events at the Stadium of Light and National Glass Centre, Sunderland, as well as offering event management services for a wide range of functions at venues across the North East.
Its latest venture, housed within the new Pier Point development, has been designed as a contemporary café and bistro, offering seaside eating with an upmarket twist.
This includes breakfast rolls, a modern lunch menu, showcasing locally-sourced produce and fresh seafood, along with an array of burgers, hot dogs and freshly-prepared sandwiches, complemented by fresh barista-style coffees and home-made cakes and desserts.
The venue also boasts a bespoke children’s menu, the highlight of which is a special ice-cream, popcorn and candy bar, offering a unique range of sumptuous sweet treats for all the family.
Gary Hutchinson, Commercial Director for SAFC and 1879 Events Management, said: “The Beach House is an exciting additional to the 1879 Events Management portfolio and complements the existing services being offered at both the National Glass Centre and the Stadium of Light.
“We’re excited about the huge potential in this new venture, as well as the impact it may have on contributing to the redevelopment of Roker seafront and look forward to exploring these opportunities even further in the coming weeks and months.”
The Beach House, which also offers a takeout service, will now open from 10am until 5pm Monday to Friday and 10am until 6pm weekends, with extended opening hours operating in-line with special events, such as the recent Sunderland International Air Show.
The venue is also available for private parties and functions, with a series of promotions already in place to encourage repeat custom, including loyalty cards.
