Farina & Co. is a great place to dine in: they have superb food, great views of the town’s hustle and bustle, and a lovely cozy interior.

They are known for their pasta and pizza, especially their Lasagna Classica and Allo Scoglio Pizza, but they also have a great vegan menu as well as lots of salads and sides that you can fill up on too.

3. The Shambles Lytham

Restaurant/bakery serving arguably the best breakfast in Lytham with a side of delectable baked goodies and great coffee!

If you enjoy dining out for breakfast, then one of the most iconic places to go to for breakfast and other snacks is The Shambles. This cute little eatery is known in the region for its breakfast, homestyle baked treats, and coffee!

The Shambles has a great vibe with exposed brick walls and lots of fancy lighting, and also has a nice outdoors area.

From their breakfast menu, we recommend trying their Eggs Benedict or Avocado Stack, but definitely ask your server for the fresh baked goods available and try whichever is fresh out of the oven.

The toasties, ciabattas, and the ‘Homemade Pie of the Day’ are the highlights of the lunch menu.

The Shambles is open every day of the week from 9 am to 6 pm., so drop by whenever you have time.

Address: 3A Dicconson Terrace, Lytham.

4. Lytham House

An upscale reservation-only restaurant serving French classics. Perfect for date night!

French cuisine always adds a level of sophistication and elegance to any evening, and if you’re wanting to spoil yourself or your significant other, then definitely head over to Lytham House to experience one of the finest restaurants the town has to offer!

With a timeless interior, friendly staff, and delicious food, you’re going to be a fan of the place as soon as you walk through the doors.

They do ask that you make bookings in advance though, but once you’re there, try their Raclette & Truffle Burger, Harissa & Yoghurt Chicken Breast, or their Lamb Meatballs as entrees. Those are some of the most popular items.

And if you still have room after those (lucky you if so!) then order their Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert.

They also have an extensive wine list, as well as a children’s menu in case you require one.

Lytham House is open from noon to midnight every day, just remember that reservation!

5. Bangkok Thai Restaurant Lytham

Authentic Thai dishes made from scratch in a traditionally decorated interior with professional staff and great service

Asian food is always a welcome change, and so if you’re looking for one of the best restaurants around Lytham for an authentic taste of the East, then head on over to Bangkok Thai Restaurant.

Traditionally decorated with lots of Thai-inspired items, the interior has a very calming and relaxing vibe. The staff are also super courteous and kind, so if you have any allergies or food sensitivities then just let them know beforehand and they’ll take care of it.

There’s plenty of dishes to try out, but we’d recommend their Mushroom in Garlic Sauce, Chicken Satay, and Tom Yum soup. They also have fresh desserts that you can ask your server about!

Bangkok Thai Restaurant is closed on Tuesdays but open every day apart from that from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

Another international cuisine that’s available in Lytham is Indian food, which you can enjoy at The Red Fort Tandoori. This restaurant is known for being home to the best locally-made Indian food in the region, so it’s definitely worth a visit.

Red Fort has been a part of the town since 2001 and is known to have great community spirit. And not only is this one of the most popular restaurants in Lytham amongst locals, but it’s also a hit with visiting tourists too.

That’ not a surprise though, as they actually serve three different cuisines: Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi!

Try their Tropical Biryani, Royal Sizzler, Zafrani King Prawn, or Aloo Gobi if you want to order the best of what they do.

Fort Tandoori is another place that primarily opens only during dinner hours, so catch them daily from 5-11:30 pm.
