GO Fine Dining In Blackpool

Fine Dining in Blackpool Eating out in Blackpool doesn’t have to revolve around the typical British seaside cuisine of hot dogs, burgers and battered fish.

You could take an evening off from the fast food and head to one of the town’s finest eateries where you can enjoy a gourmet meal in stylish surroundings.

Perhaps the most famous restaurant in Blackpool, and certainly a hit with visiting celebrities and politicians, is the September Brasserie [map] on Queen Street. Run by chef-patron Michael Golowicz, this place has been mentioned in the Good Food Guide since it opened back in 1990. The restaurant offers set-priced two and three-course meals, which usually involve some form of fresh local seafood.

Next up is the White Tower [map] on Ocean Boulevard at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, which has a distinct Las Vegas-style to it, along with great views of the promenade. Here the food has a modern British flavour with plenty of little extras, while the service is renowned for being fast and friendly.

Situated on King Street in the heart of Blackpool, Kwizeen [map] is one of the town’s newest restaurants but has already won a reputation for its fine food and welcoming host.

With owner-chef Marco Calle-Calatayud in charge of the kitchen and Tony Beswick doing front-of-house, this superb little eatery is great for a celebration or a quiet dinner for two. The menu includes some traditional Lancashire dishes, all with a modern twist, and plenty of seafood – it is Blackpool after all.

Blink and you’ll miss the next little delight, as The Warehouse [map] is hidden up a town centre alley known as Back Church Street. Mainly a haunt for locals, and the odd tourists who stumble across it, this restaurant offers decent lunches and posh nosh in the evening.

If you’re after the finest fresh ingredients cooked together by a chef with more than 20 years experience then get to AJ’s Bistro [map] on Topping Street, a fab little eatery with plenty of flair. Chef-patron Andrew Reeds isn’t afraid to use his imagination in the menu, while host Julie Crawford is more than happy to discuss any special dietary requirements that will be adhered to for your meal.

Finally, if you really want to splash out on a spectacular meal why not take a trip out of central Blackpool to Thornton, where you’ll find Bib Gourmand-recommended Twelve [map], a gourmet delight. Located at Marsh Mill Village next to the historic windmill that dates back to 1794, Twelve is housed in a former dance studio. Here the menu, which is a mix of traditional food with a contemporary twist, changes daily and is displayed on a huge wall screen via a hi-tech projector.
