For a quiet, seaside town, Lytham St Annes has a ridiculous number of great restaurants and cafes for eating out. Today we’re sharing the top recommendations from Sally at Who’s the Mummy, who’s lived in Lytham for more than ten years.
Today, I’m sharing some of our favourites. As you may know, the Foodies100 team is based in Lytham St Annes and over the past few years, we’ve done exhaustive research on the very best places to eat in Lytham – so here are just a few of our favourites.
Set on the sea front, The Queens is an gorgeous pub with squishy leather seats and an amazing seafront eating area. Even better than that is a fabulous menu.
Our top recommendation is the avocado on toast, or perhaps the sausage and mash, or the fish finger sandwich. There’s also a spicy Korean chicken burger, which is amazing.
On a Sunday you can book a table for a traditional roast dinner, and don’t miss the giant meringues for pudding. Yum!
Set down a little street just off the seafront, this music-themed cafe is a real gem. The owner of Vinyl Groove has a partnership with Spotify that means you can buy music devices here. There’s always great music playing, and vintage vinyl on display. The menu is casual with sandwiches, fabulous coffee, and a great selection of freshly made cream cakes.
If you’re looking for a slightly more glamorous place to eat out in Lytham, then we’ve got you covered. The town’s main square is lined with ritzy restaurants. For my money, Spago is the pick of the bunch with a fresh seafood menu, Mediterranean classics and a fabulous cocktail list. If you’re here on the weekend, dress to impress if you want to fit in.
One of our favourite lunch spots in the area is Nom Noms in St Annes. It’s a sandwich shop but they do amazing, freshly made lunch boxes. You can choose a flavour of chicken, your preferred rice, and mixed salad. It’s divine, but make sure you get there early because they run out every lunchtime if you’re not quick!
While you’re eating out at Nom Noms, don’t miss the giant brownies – the owner makes them fresh, and each week there’s a new thing to try. My personal favourite? Chocolate Orange brownies. Mmm.
The Blackbird Tea and Coffee House
A little way outside the town centre, this tea rooms is reasonably priced and does the best afternoon tea. There’s cosy seating, endless hot tea, and the BEST cakes.
It’s well worth the short drive, if you’re looking for a spot. And this cafe is just a short walk from the sand dunes and the flat, open beaches of St Annes.
