Looking for the best places to eat in Blackpool? We’ve stomped our way around the city, checking out all the top Blackpool restaurants to see where you should book next time you’re in this famous seaside town.

Blackpool is easily one of the UK’s best known seaside destinations, and the Lancashire town still attracts summer beach-goers in their thousands as soon as the sun appears. Whether it’s the famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Winter Gardens, Blackpool Zoo or the Blackpool Tower, there’s a wealth of things to see and do here - more than enough to keep you occupied for a day trip. If you’re here for 24 hours, that means you have at least two meals to take care of too - fortunately there are plenty of good restaurants in Blackpool to keep you well fed and watered.

Blackpool’s coastal location means that there’s a traditional lean towards fish and seafood - you’ll mainly see this via the many fish and chip shops up and down the coast. The general standard of fish and chips here is high, so if you’re after something easy-going, affordable and portable (perhaps to eat as you walk down the beachfront), we’d recommend popping into a chippy.

Alternatively, there’s a wide range of international restaurants to choose from, particularly among the best restaurants in Blackpool town centre. Our list below includes everything from traditional Indian neighbourhood restaurants to Spanish tapas and some lovely family-owned Italian spots. Consider also popping down the coast to nearby Lytham St Anne’s, which has its own thriving hub of local restaurants and takeaways.

Read on for our pick of the best restaurants in Blackpool.

Scott

Scott's Bistro Blackpool

2 Glebe Lane, Kirkham, Lancashire, PR4 2YN

This Kirkham bistro sits in between Blackpool and Preston, but it's easy enough to get to in a car so we're including it! Scott's offers lots of really well priced set menus as well as an evening menu of proper bistro comfort food - think venison haunch parmentier and butternut squash risotto.

Elvin’s Lytham St Annes

Elvin’s Lytham St Annes

Unit 2 Clifton Walk, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 5ER

It may look nothing special but Elvin's always has outstanding ratings from customers and offers a nice range of healthy options, from Lebanese yoghurt chicken to mezze platters, buddha bowls and burgers. We're big fans of the chicken and lamb shawarma with homemade flatbreads.

Pizza Grazie

Pizza Grazie

44 Bolton street, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY1 6AE

Restaurant Tiziano

Restaurant Tiziano

65A Harrowside, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY4 1QH

Tiziano was once known and loved as Ambrosini's, and though it has had a bit of a redesign it remains very much the same restaurant. The kitchen cooks up comforting Italian classics, but we're big fans of the garlic breads baked fresh to order and the delicious pasta dishes.

The Bank Bar & Grill Blackpool

The Bank Bar & Grill Blackpool

28 Corporation Street, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY1 1EJ

This slick bar and grill restaurant does everything you want - it's good value, the menu is packed with comforting, no-frills cooking and best of all, it's just a few minutes from the North Pier. The Bank Bar & Grill does a cracking (and very popular) Sunday roast too.

Hauze

Hauze

28-30 Talbot Road, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY1 1LF

Hauze makes a good date spot thanks to its moody lighting and striking scarlet and black colour scheme. Meanwhile, the international menu has something for everyone, though it does specialise in meaty mains, including fillet steak in peppercorn sauce, baked pork fillet with tomato and mushroom, and pork ribs in spicy Hauze sauce. 

£30 - £49

Pulcinella Blackpool

Pulcinella Blackpool

3 Bispham Road, Cleveleys, Lancashire, FY5 1DG

Pulcinella specialises in classic Italian trattoria fare, with a menu that touches on traditional dishes like lasagna, spaghetti carbonara, osso buco and fish stew. Local produce is used wherever possible - all the seafood comes fresh from Fleetwood, for example, whilst quality Italian products are imported.

£50 - £79

Stefani

Stefani's Pizzeria

3 Cedar Square, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY1 1BP

This family-run spot in Blackpool town centre is everything you want from a pizzeria. Despite the central location it has all the charm of a neighbourhood spot, the pizza dough is slow fermented and made fresh every day, and pizzas are cooked in a proper wood-fired pizza oven.
