Eating Out

We’ve all missed the simple pleasures in life of rounding up our nearest and dearest and dining at a restaurant or casual eating spot.

Whether it’s a hearty breakfast, spot of brunch, a three course evening meal or a sweet treat, this is all back on the menu for us now.

The Government gave the go ahead for all eateries to re-open from 4 July, providing that they are COVID-secure. Across the resort, we expect the measures to echo those in place already - including maintaining social distancing rules, frequent hand sanitising and queue and booking management. 

Know before you go: here are some handy tips when it comes to eating out in Blackpool:

  • Check if pre-booking is required. This helps businesses keep a close eye on their capacity levels
  • Opening times may vary, so double check as it may vary from normal business hours 
  • Keep your booking small - there can only be a maximum of two households present
  • Plan your journey and travel to Blackpool safely
  • Lastly, if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit

Take a look at a selection of eating spots below as examples on how they will keep you safe while you dine.
