Blackpool Pleasure Beach 525 Ocean Boulevard Blackpool FY4 1EZ
It's probably the Art Deco backdrop and the 1930s feel, but you definitely keep looking round The Grill for the ship's captain to appear. The cruise-liner motif extends to the swirling staircase, upper gallery, gilded chairs and crisp, white linen – all part of the experience at the Pleasure Beach's rather glam brasserie, sited in the iconic white Casino Building at the head of the park. Fancy it may be, pricey it ain't, which makes it a top locale for a reasonably priced feed while you're doing the rides or hanging out around South Shore. The menu is familiar but fancied-up a bit – fish and chips, prawn cocktail, burgers, mussels, salads, potted shrimps, steaks – and there are large and small portions of most things available too. Views are over the crazy golf course and up the prom – admittedly there aren't many ships you can say that about – and we love coming out of here, calm and refreshed, ready for another go on the roller-coaster.
