Gatsby’s on Navigation Point is inspired by the glitz and glamour of The Great Gatsby with its Art Deco style and prohibition era cocktails.

And you could dine there for free courtesy of owner Gemma Taylor who is giving away a steak meal for two and bottle of wine worth around £40 in a competition.

She has worked in hotels and restaurants and saw an opportunity to combine her love of the 2013 movie starring Leonardo Dicaprio and bring something new to Hartlepool Marina.

Gemma said: “It was the right opportunity at the right time.

“The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite films and the era is very popular at the moment with Peaky Blinders.

“It is is the glitz and the glamour of the parties. There is a lot of things you can do with it.”

The Great Gatsby novel was written by American author F Scott Fitzgerald, was also made into a movie in 1974 starring Mia Farrow and Robert Redford, and is set in New York’s jazz scene in 1922.
