Food and Drink
For mouth-watering food and drink, step no further! Lincolnshire has an international reputation for food, fish and farming, so it’s no surprise that our region is home to some of the best food and drink producers.
With this rich heritage of great food and drink, you’ll find a great choice of bars, restaurants and cafes in North East Lincolnshire. Whether you are looking for a restaurant for a delicious evening meal or lunch featuring local produce, a fun cocktail bar for drinks with friends or a café or tea room for a light bite, we’ve got them all.
In our eyes, a trip to Cleethorpes or Grimsby is not a successful one unless we have had some fish and chips. We think there is nothing better than to eat them sitting on a beach or on the Prom looking out to sea. Or you can eat in one of our many fish and chip restaurants including our lovely 1870s Cleethorpes Pier, home to Papa’s Fish & Chips or the long-established Steels Restaurant or Ernie Becketts.
Café culture in Cleethorpes is booming, with plenty of choice for your favourite latte to while away the time catching up with friends. Perhaps you want to indulge in an afternoon tea. Many of our tea rooms give their afternoon tea menus a seasonal twist. Check out The Counting House, Just Good Cake or Figs. If it’s a great breakfast you’re looking for, try Browns Café on North Prom, Riverhead Coffee in St Peter’s Avenue or Marples in Sea View Quarter.
Fine dining featuring local Lincolnshire produce cooked to perfection can be had at many of our restaurants. Check out the Pig & Whistle at Healing Manor, Petit Delight in Sea View Quarter or Abbys Bistro in Abbeygate, Grimsby.
Whatever food you fancy, there is something for all tastes and budgets. Whether that’s handmade pizza, Moroccan tagines, a tikka masala, a Thai or some Tapas or just one of the fast food brands, they are right here to tickle your tastebuds. Many cater for vegetarians, vegans and those with allergies or intolerances with some having their own dedicated menus.
Don’t forget a drink or two. For those real ale enthusiasts, pay a visit to The Signal Box in Cleethorpes, the smallest pub on the planet, Message in a Bottle, specialist bottle shop and weekend bar, or Docks Beers, producer of artisan craft beers. It has its own taproom and beer shop and they also do guided tours of its brewing process. Obviously there’s some tasting of beer afterwards. What’s not to love?
