Seafood in Blackpool

Blackpool is as famous for its fish and chips as it is for its Tower, so don’t even think about leaving the resort without eating a fine battered haddock and chunky chips.

There is an endless array of fish restaurants and takeaways along the Golden Mile [map], but to help you on your way we’ve picked out the best of best. We’ve even thrown in a few of the more upmarket eateries for those who fancy going the whole hog with oysters, king prawns or even shark steaks!

Firstly there's the world famous Harry Ramsden’s [map], a restaurant and takeaway ideally located on the central Promenade. This celebrated Yorkshire chippy has the finest, and perhaps priciest, fish and chips in Blackpool, making it a firm favourite with holidaymakers all year round.

A winner of numerous awards for its quality fish is Seniors Fish Bar and Restaurant [map] on Normoss Road, which offers a wide range of fresh fish and seafood dishes along with vegetarian and non-seafood alternatives. The acclaimed eatery was named as the best restaurant in the resort in the Blackpool Tourism Awards 2001, and was voted in the Top 10 in the 2002 Fish and Chip Shop Survey in the Independent newspaper.

Along with plenty of white-knuckle rides, Blackpool Pleasure Beach also has its share of fish and chip joints such as The Fish Inn [map], which is situated in the casino building on Ocean Boulevard. This place serves the usual battered cod but also offers an adventurous selection of seafood dishes including shark steaks.

Just up the road from here you’ll find Thor's Plaice [map], a Viking ship-themed restaurant specialising in good old British fish and chips.

Heading out of central Blackpool to the Marton area you’ll probably stumble across The Cottage [map] on Newhouse Rd, which is popular with locals, tourists and famous faces alike. You can either take a seat in the licensed restaurant or take away, and you can choose from haddock, cod, halibut, hake or plaice.

For a more stylish setting why not head to the Seafood Restaurant [map] on Bond Street, which is a firm favourite among politicians during the party conference season. This restaurant offers the finest in lobster, oysters, shellfish and traditional fish classics like Dover Sole, but it also a wide range of steaks, grills and chicken dishes. Set-priced two and three-course dinners are available, along with happy hour specials.

Finally, for a great choice of cockles, oysters and mussels head to Robert’s Oyster Bar [map] on the Promenade, a wonderful 130-year-old café that remains as popular today as it’s ever been.
