Although Mablethorpe isn’t a large town, there are loads of great places to eat, and way more than just the local seafood! Lovers of Chinese or Italian cuisine will find their favourites close by, all within a short walk or drive from our Golden Sands Holiday Park

Here’s our guide to the best restaurants in Mablethorpe.

The Dunes 

The Dunes is a family friendly shorefront bar and restaurant which screens major sporting events and also hosts evening entertainment including quizzes, karaoke, and other participatory events. 

The bar food at The Dunes is surprisingly good, with many of the usual pub classics on offer, including full English breakfasts, burgers, pies, scampi and, of course, fish and chips. A carvery is available on Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with an accompaniment of potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Yorkshire pudding. 

A full children’s menu is also available, and The Dunes is also dog-friendly!

Gerardo’s 

Gerardo’s serves the Italian classics you might expect – pizza, pasta and, for those seeking a light lunch, ciabatta, panini, and wraps. They do a great line in desserts – Belgian waffles, pancakes and ice cream, and there’s even a Gerardo’s ice cream van you might spot locally. 

Gourmet burgers and steaks are also available, and pizzas are served in 10- and 12-inch sizes. Dishes are filling and well presented, as well as being very good value. A word of warning though – dogs aren’t welcome inside, so leave your four-legged friend at home (and maybe ask for a doggy bag). 

Fantasia Italian Restaurant 

The other popular Italian restaurant in Mablethorpe is Fantasia and their pizzas score especially highly with visitors. They have gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options and the service receives a an almost uniformly good write-up on Trip Advisor (unusual for the site). Starters like garlic mushrooms leave plenty of room for mains like lasagne or steak cooked just the way you like it. 

Great value meal deals and a reliable takeaway service are available too, should you feel like some Fantasia comfort food at home.

Seaholme Bar and Grill 

On Seaholme Road at the southern end of Queens Park lies the Seaholme Bar and Grill, which won a Travellers Choice Award from TripAdvisor in 2021. This is a welcoming bar offering no-nonsense, filling steak options including sirloins and rib-eyes. There are plenty of seafood options too including scampi and red snapper, as well as more unusual offerings such as steak fajitas. 

The exterior of Seaholme could probably do with a bit of a facelift, but visitors report that the service and atmosphere inside are excellent, and prices are extremely reasonable. It’s also a short walk from Golden Sands Holiday Park and the beach.

Chinese

China Rose 

Chinese food fans need not go hungry in Mablethorpe – China Rose is regularly rated as one of the top ten of all the town’s eateries. The cosy, attractive interior of China Rose is conducive to groups and sharing plates, but they also deliver, including to the Haven Holiday Park. 

Crispy beef is a visitors’ favourite, as are the prawn toast and garlic and chilli prawns. If you’re ordering for delivery, make sure you get your order in early. China Rose can be busy with delivery orders at popular times.

Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips

Robin Hood’s 

Of course, no rundown of a seaside town’s eateries would be complete without a traditional British chippie, and Robin Hood’s is Mablethorpe’s most popular provider of local seafood. Patrons report that their fish is fresh and flaky, and that the batter they are served in is crisp but not too thick. 

Situated just a few hundred metres from the Loewe Cinema, and not far from the seafront, Robin Hood’s is takeaway only. Visitors love to take their fish and chips down to the seafront off Quebec Road, where there is plenty of parking, so you can watch the waves as you eat.

Cafes

Cafes

Lady B’s 

Lady B’s comes highly recommended, regularly scoring the top spot for cafes and restaurants on Trip Advisor.  It’s a vegetarian-friendly cafe with excellent coffee and has one of the prettiest interiors and exteriors in Mablethorpe. 

Famous for its cupcakes and its afternoon teas, Lady B’s is a sweet-tooth’s paradise, with tables both inside and outside, antique chandeliers and fancy cake counters. Helpfully, it’s licensed too, so you can enjoy a glass of bubbly or a cocktail with your posh sausage rolls, finger sandwiches or scones.

The Coffee Pot 

Here’s another popular cafe in Mablethorpe, which offers more savoury options than Lady B’s and is a little more traditional in its decor. It’s particularly strong on filling breakfasts and you’ll get a beautifully presented and calorific full English here that’s difficult to fault. 

The coffee pot is also licensed, so you can enjoy a drink with your lunch. However, it closes after lunchtime, so do arrive early. For those who prefer a lighter lunch there are paninis, toasted sandwiches, and some unique dessert options including ice cream sundaes and sweet kebabs (with banana, strawberry, marshmallow, and chocolate sauce). 

Busy Bee Cafe

Mablethorpe is strong on cafes, so here’s one more for you. The Busy Bee Cafe is as friendly as its name suggests, and even has gluten-free options for the food intolerant. Your dog may even receive a little surprise, if they’re hungry. 

A traditional greasy spoon, the Busy Bee is one of the best value breakfast or lunch spots in the town, and can be found on Tennyson Road, just off the High Street.

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.
