Fish and Chips

Best restaurants in Grimsby

  • Share on Facebook

Given its maritime history, you might expect Grimsby to have some excellent seafood restaurants, which it does, but it offers so much more than that. You’ll find plentiful fish and chips, but also a top-class pizzeria, plus delicious Mediterranean, Indian and Moroccan food. 

Here’s our rundown of some of the very best restaurants in Grimsby and neighbouring Cleethorpes, across as a range of budgets and cuisines. Let’s tuck in!

Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips

Littlefield Lane Chippy

If you’d prefer to stay local for your fish and chips, this traditional chippy is situated a short walk from Alexandra Dock. You’ll get all the classics here, including mushy peas and spam fritters – don’t expect any fancy herbs or posh sauces. What you will get is beautifully cooked fish, golden, crisp chips with fluffy centres and nice touches like curry sauce or gravy.  

Visitors report that this is one of the few chippies doing gluten-free batter and the shopfront is pretty too, with curved glass bay windows. Go hungry – they serve big portions!

Pizza

Tredici Wood Fired Pizzeria and Bakery 

For an authentic taste of pizza made the traditional Napolitan way, head to Tredici, which is named after the lucky number thirteen in Italian. They use real Italian tomatoes, flour and even sea salt, with local cheeses and meats, to combine the best of British and Italian ingredients. 

Popular pizzas include a nduja with Calabrian sausage, a verdure with courgette and aubergine, and of course, a hot diavola. There’s a separate vegan menu and you can build your own pizza from a host of toppings. Here’s an insider’s tip – Tredici have an arrangement to deliver to the nearby Dock Beers craft brewery, where you can sample a range of delicious local beers. Foodie heaven.

European

Sage 

On Osbourne Street in the city centre, you’ll find this chic eatery offering a Mediterranean menu and vibe. The regularly changing menu is chalked up on a blackboard and includes fish, flatbreads, burgers, and seafood pasta. You’ll also find more exotic offerings such as lamb kofta or chorizo. Portions are generous and the food is rich in flavour and beautifully presented. 

Desserts include lemon cheesecake, meringue, and chocolate brownies, perfect for sweet tooths. Sage isn’t open particularly late and is extremely popular, with loads of five-star reviews, so do make sure you book in advance.

Steak

Miller & Carter Steakhouse 

When you’ve had a busy day exploring Grimsby and its surroundings, you’ll want a hearty meal, and few local eateries do hearty like Miller and Carter. They’ve won awards for their 30- and 50-day aged steaks and even run their own “steak school.” The hype is justified – from finely marbled sirloins to black Angus filet mignon. A range of sauces are available from bearnaise to an exquisite truffle-infused porcini mushroom sauce. 

Even if you’re not a meat-eater, there’s a menu of fish and vegetarian alternatives that are just as mouth-watering, and bargain three-course set options are available as well as a la carte.

The Comfy Duck 

A short drive out of Grimsby into the country, you’ll find the village of Laceby, and the Comfy Duck restaurant. The menu isn’t extensive, but it offers a very strong take on classy British pub fare including burgers, lamb rump and their curry of the day. There’s also local fish on offer – haddock and halibut among them. 

The surf and turf is a recommendation, including juicy sirloin, scampi and queen scallops. The Comfy Duck is also a great place to break your day trip with an afternoon tea (especially the sweet options, which look delicious). 

Abby’s Wine Bar and Bistro 

If you want a good glass of red with your evening meal, or a lovingly shaken cocktail, then head down to Abby’s. As well as popular staples such as burgers and salmon fillet, there are some unusual specialties – a minced lamb moussaka and for dessert a fruity and chewy pavlova. 

Abby’s has a large private room upstairs available for hire and it’s a popular wedding reception venue, so they know how to treat their clientele. Remember to leave space for an espresso martini!

Greek

Othello 

In the summer months, Greek and Mediterranean food can provide a refreshing alternative to sometimes stodgy British fare, and Othello delivers a luxurious version of this popular cuisine. The restaurant is cool and beautifully decorated, and the menu is high-end in presentation and price. 

Meat lovers will enjoy some unusual cuts here – veal escalopes, steak diane and klefdiko (slow-roasted, marinated lamb). For those looking for something lighter, the meze platter is to be recommended. Vegetarian options and desserts are a little light, but the quality of the food and uniqueness of the menu make this city centre venue well worth a booking.

Indian

Indian

The Miller’s Restaurant 

If you’re looking for a bit of spice in the Grimsby area, this Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant, in neighbouring Waltham, offers a range of tandoori and biryani classics. You can’t miss it either, it’s right beside Waltham’s still-working windmill. 

The lamb is especially recommended, and they provide a good range of vegetarian options. Doubling as a tearoom, the restaurant does a great line in coffee and cake during the day.

Chinese

Shang Hai 

If you’re looking to stay in one evening, but fancy some tasty Chinese food, we’d recommend Shang Hai. You’ll find all the classics here, including crispy battered sweet and sour dishes, chilli and salt king prawns, and chow mein. Like many Chinese takeaways, the extensive menu can be bewildering, but Shang Hai are extremely versatile and will even whip up an omelette and chips! 

If you have allergies, Shang Hai are very strong on ensuring you don’t order anything you’d regret, and with so many choices you should find something for every palette.

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
