5 Restaurants to try near Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the sort of place you would like to spend the whole day - there is lots to do and it is wise to get your moneys worth and stay as long as you can. This inevitably means you will need to stop to re-fuel once or twice during your visit and whilst you can pack a picnic, store in the lockers and eat in the designated off-site picnic area, this isn't always practical so I thought I would share our top 5 places to eat that are within 5-10 minutes walking distance of the theme park.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach 'All you can eat' Wristband

The 'All you can eat' Blackpool Pleasure Beach wristband is an excellent choice if you are planning on staying at the park for a full day. Your wristband allows you to dine in 7 different restaurants with options ranging from stir fries to pizza buffets, tex-mex and sandwiches. You can visit restaurants as many times as you like and enjoy unlimited drinks too (although not bottled/alcoholic). Restaurants open at various times throughout the day but there is always at least one open from park opening and at least one restaurant still open when the park closes meaning you could enjoy a late breakfast, lunch and dinner plus snacks and drinks throughout the day for the bargain price of £20 per adult and £15 per child if booked online (see here for more information and restrictions).

Tiger Bills Blackpool

Tiger Bills is located at the entrance of Blackpool pleasure beach and a lovely place to stop if you would like to escape the theme park madness for half an hour and enjoy some authentic thai cuisine or food fresh from the grill and maybe a cheeky cocktail before heading home. We ordered thai curries and were very impressed. Their lunch deal of £8.95 for 2 courses and children's meals from £3.95 offer very good value for money indeed and Tiger Bills is the perfect choice if you would like a non 'fast food' option. Visit for more information.

 Notarianni Ice Cream Blackpool

Just a 10 minute walk (heading towards the tower from the pleasure beach) is the most delightful hidden gem. Notarianni's may be hidden down a side street but it's known amongst locals as the place to stop for ice cream whilst in Blackpool. With a 70 year heritage, their ice cream may be traditional vanilla however they sure know how to make your ice cream anything but boring. Would you just look at our Sundaes! YUM!!!!! Visit for more information and exact location.

Wetherspoons and McDonalds

The Velvet Coaster is a brand new Wetherspoons pub which opened this Summer. Just a 2 minute walk along the promenade from Blackpool Pleasure Beach this pub is a definite option if you are on a tight budget. I love that there is lots of outdoor space with two roof terraces (with sea views) and a large outdoor terrace - perfect for Summer! Visit here for more information:-

There is a McDonalds next door to The Velvet Coaster too if you really can't resist the pull of the golden arches :D

Hopefully I have given you a little inspiration with where to dine when you visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach - there are lots of fast food stalls on site too and look out for the oyster and champagne bar too!
