Great Places To Eat and Drink

Good value for money with a gorgeous sea view and 25% off selected items from their delicious pre-theatre menu? Yes, please. That’s just a few reasons as to why Revolution Blackpool is a hotspot. Whether you’re dying to taste their take on American cuisine or gasping for their fine selection of cocktails after the show, then you need to go no further than Blackpool’s crown jewel that is the Promenade. Ask them for their pre-theatre menu. Get 25% off your food when you present a valid theatre ticket.

Nando’s – Peri Peri Chicken Paradise!
Located just opposite the theatre, Nando’s specialises in Portuguese style Mozambican
peri peri chicken. This is casual clean dining perfect for families. Flame grilled, never fried varying from mild to wild in spice depending on your personal palate. Nando’s boasts a large menu with something for everyone. From sharing platters and whole chickens and wings to super-grain salads or sweet potato and butternut burgers. Get 20% off your food and drink per valid ticket holder. So, if 5 people are at the table, they need 5 tickets for 20% off the food bill. If just one ticket, the discount is valid on just that meal.

The Bank Bar & Grill – New Grill on the Block!
A new addition to Blackpool but already proving incredibly popular, this local restaurant serves quality meals in many varieties. From standard pizza and pasta portions to stroganoff, grilled steaks and fish dishes. As a bar, The Bank prides itself on its indulgent cocktail, spirits and wine menus. However, if you are going to a matinee performance, check out the ‘light bites’ bar food menu or their classic traditional afternoon tea. Get 10% off your food bill (excluding Set Menus, Sun to Thu Only) when you present a valid theatre ticket.

Harry Ramsden – Fish and Chip Heaven!
Coming to Blackpool and not having fish and chips by the sea is a crime against local cuisine. Lugging a bag of soggy chips around, however, doesn’t exactly say pre-theatre elegance. Enter Harry Ramsden: an establishment that takes fish and chips by the sea to a whole new level. From the classic favourites to sea bass and Sri Lankan curry, Harry Ramsden has something for everyone. In a restaurant that seats over 200 people in the heart of Blackpool, Ramsden is a lively spot with room to accommodate you at any time – even during those busy summer months.

Beach House Restaurant
The perfect post-theatre spot, where the modern décor and beachfront location will make you feel like you’re relaxing on the Mediterranean coastline – just without the weather. The Beach House Restaurant is predominantly seafood, with an in-house Sushi bar and outdoor Char Grill station. The family-run business promises the best views of the promenade, accompanied by an in-house DJ and the freshest cocktails in Blackpool. Whether you’re in a post-theatre haze just looking for a casual drink, or you’re just getting the night started, Beach House can accommodate you.

Michael Wan’s Mandarin
Who says that a takeaway is the only way to enjoy the fabulous taste of the orient? Everyone loves their fair share of sweet and sour or a good chow mein, but Mandarin is a little less ‘buffet’ style and a little more fine dining. Mandarin boasts fine Cantonese style cuisine at great prices. Serving Blackpool and Lancashire for over 55 years, Michael Wan’s Mandarin has perfected fresh, cooked-to-order food. From live music Wednesdays to private dining, Mandarin is more than just a restaurant: it’s an experience.
La Fontana Italian – Family Favourite!
Blackpool is ripe with Italian cuisine, but few rivals the authentic taste and friendly atmosphere of La Fontana. Winner of the restaurant of the year award, La Fontana is part of Blackpool’s foundation. With a wide selection of antipasti, meat and fish dishes, pasta and indulgent dolci, La Fontana offers up Italy’s finest. Whether you’re going with a group of friends, or for a romantic dinner out, wine and dine yourself under the faux night sky in the courtyard, bringing the ambience of Italy to Blackpool (Closed Tuesdays).
