Having enjoyed our recent trip to Northumberland and trying some fabulous coastal eateries while we were there, we went on to publish our latest discoveries for eating out along the North East coastline.
Here they are .. the ten North East coastal eateries you must try.
On To The North West…
Kicking off our North West tour is Southport’s highest ranking restaurant on Tripadvisor. It’s also featured in the Waitrose Good Food Guide for three consecutive years. They offer contemporary cuisine, using the finest local ingredients. They have a unique tasting menu that is very popular; three starters and two mains for £19.95 at lunch and £24.95 on an evening.
This traditional country pub dates back to 1847. A five minute walk from the beautiful Solway coastline, the pub serves real ales, home cooked pub food and artisan pizzas. On Mondays it’s £12 for 2 pizzas – bargain!
Captain Nelson Tavern, Maryport
Reviewers seem to rave about two things; the seafood and the Sunday lunch. Set in the seaside town of Maryport, this restaurant seems to be the perfect place to end a day visiting the local attractions such as the maritime museum and aquarium.
McHalls Bistro, Blackpool
The #1 rated restaurant in Blackpool according to Tripadvisor with 5-star reviews galore! Surrounded by many of Blackpool’s main attractions, the restaurants adjoining hotel is in the prime location for a visit to the ‘Vegas of the North’.
Get your fix of Spanish tapas on the North West coast! Serving a variety of taco dishes including chicken satay and tuna, ratatouille and other Mediterranean dishes this place is not to be missed if you’re after something a little different whilst visiting the North West. It’s also the highest rated restaurant on Tripadvisor in Workington.
Situated harbour-side in Whitehaven with the Lake District close by, this traditional seaside pub is in a perfect location. Serving good pub food, traditional ales and fine wines in a welcoming atmosphere, The Vagabond is quickly building a good reputation. The Sunday lunches are apparently epic, too!
Hundy Manor is a 4-star country house hotel outside of Workington. The restaurant has been designed to create an informal and relaxed environment whilst serving food that does not compromise on quality. The food served reflects the best modern British cuisine has to offer incorporating locally sourced Cumbrian produce. Dishes include pork tenderlion fillet served with crushed apple and cider cream sauce and baked delice of salmon served with chorizo risotto – sounds delish!
The Globe, Whitehaven
A guest once stated that The Globe in Whitehaven is, ‘the friendliest pub you will ever visit’. The pub usually serves at least two ales from local breweries. Recent favourites include Ulverston Flying Elephants and Another Fine Mess and Derwent Carlise State Bitter.
The Brasserie, Morecambe
Another taste of the Mediterranean, now. The Brasserie in Morecambe is known for its authentic Greek food and drink. Reviewers seem to rave about the Meze dishes designed for two people.
Le Boulevard, Southport
The steak and ale pies at this place look phenomenal. Serving traditional, hearty pub grub Le Boulevard is THE place to eat in Southport. They also received a certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor in 2017.
