  • Share on Facebook

Weston-super-Mare is one of the most iconic English seaside towns. Alongside the fantastic fish and chips offering you’d expect from any colossal coastal spot, there are a large range of places to eat to get all the mouths in the family watering. Culinary highlights of this lively town include Indian, Greek, Mexican and Italian eateries, many of them with beautiful views of the Channel. Here are our picks of the finest places to dine in Weston and its surroundings.

1. The Ginger Pig Kitchen

1. The Ginger Pig Kitchen

Cuisine: Modern British

Address: 4 West Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JT

Topping the charts in terms of online reviews, The Ginger Pig serves modern British food in a lively venue with a bustling vibe. Local ingredients are combined into mouth-watering combinations including pork belly with miniature black puddings, mash and Vimto(!) red cabbage puree, and of course the local catch served with chunky chips.

The Ginger Pig has frequent tapas nights which are a massive draw, the calamari in particular receiving major thumbs ups from regulars. They don’t neglect desserts either, with delicious and beautifully presented confections garnished with spun sugar and a highly recommended crème brulee.

2. Scotty’s Lounge and Bistro

2. Scotty’s Lounge and Bistro

Cuisine: Seafood, British

Address: 10 The Centre, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1UW 

The bottomless brunches are a major draw with the younger generation at the fun-loving Scotty’s in the town centre. Tapas are a common choice, because they allow you to taste as much of the local catch as possible! 

Regulars rave about the seafood including the mussels, and the hake served with a chorizo cream. There are vegetarian and vegan options too, with the halloumi fries scoring highly. Popular with families and groups, Scotty’s is a bit of a party venue, and a great place for a cocktail or two as well as an evening meal.

3. Meze Mazi

3. Meze Mazi

Cuisine: Mediterranean / European 

Address: 45 Oxford Street, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1TN 

Like tapas, meze provides an opportunity to share and sample a range of dishes, and there are a host of vegan choices here too. Greek classics such as taramasalata and calamari are featured, alongside more exotic salads, dips and fish dishes including whitebait, sardines, and cod in Greek beer batter. For those who aren’t into fish, there’s souvlaki, slow-cooked beef and lamb, and sikotakia (chicken liver marinated in milk, fried with spring onions and oregano).

Vegetarians can enjoy over a dozen options aside from the salads, and small plate prices are low enough to sample a half dozen between two without breaking the bank.

4. The Curry Garden

Cuisine: Indian / Balti 

Address: 69 Orchard Street, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1RL 

Probably the most popular of the Asian restaurants in the town, The Curry Garden has been serving contemporary takes on Indian and Bangladeshi food for an impressive 40 years! It’s undoubtedly one of the best places to eat in Weston-Super-Mare. 

The restaurant concentrates on two dozen signature dishes plus a few tandoori and seafood options. Specialities include the Chennai special grill (chicken, lamb, kebabs, lamb chops and onion bhaji) and New Delhi keema (spiced mince lamb and peas). There’s a whole separate menu for vegans too, plus a range of tempting desserts. All-in-all, this is real comfort food, served in an attractive and cosy venue.

5. The Milton Larder

5. The Milton Larder

Cuisine: Café / British

Address: 262 Milton Road, Weston-super-Mare BS22 8EN 

For a filling breakfast or a restorative cake and coffee, there are few better cafes in Weston than The Milton Larder. All-day breakfasts are available for those enjoying the morning after the night before, and there are sandwiches and wraps too. 

Delicious cakes and tray bakes are made on the premises daily. Pop in on a Saturday morning for a particularly good breakfast deal, including the Large Larder Breakfast for anyone who needs to fill up on calories (and there’s a vegetarian option too).

6. Demetris Taverna

Cuisine: Mediterranean / Greek 

Address: 18 Richmond St, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1TA 

There’s an authentic Greek taverna feel to Demetris, with its wooden beams and exposed stone walls. The food has an authenticity too – delicious meat or fish meze platters, souvlaki and stuffed vine leaves. 

There’s a focus on local seafood, including lemon sole and brill (a flatfish similar to turbot), steak dishes and chicken cooked Greek-style with feta, herbs, and a tomato sauce. Check out their specials menu including scallops, octopus, and lobster ravioli too. The blend of local seafood and Greek ingredients proves a winning one with tourists and locals alike.

7. Sakura Japanese Restaurant

7. Sakura Japanese Restaurant

Cuisine: Japanese / Sushi

Address: 36 Boulevard, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1NF

Another great way to try local seafood in Weston is in the sushi and sashimi on offer at Sakura. Japanese seafood is all about presentation and simplicity, which allows you to really taste the flavour of the fish. Sakura takes this approach with aplomb, serving up sea bass, salmon, mackerel, and scallops with the traditional wasabi, pickled ginger, and soy sauce.

Cooked dishes are available too, such as katsu chicken or pork curry, teppanyaki and stir fry noodles. It’s a spacious restaurant but if you want to watch the sushi being prepared and admire the chef’s skills, sit at the bar.

8. Lasseter’s @ The Winter Gardens

Cuisine: British / Vegetarian friendly

Address: Winter Gardens Pavilion Royal Parade, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1AJ

If you’re visiting the historic Winter Gardens, why not dine at Lasseter’s, a perfect location for a drink or meal while you watch the waves. Situated on Royal Palace, Lasseter’s serves British classics including burgers and beer battered cod and chips, with a good wine list and plenty of vegetarian options.

You really come here for the view and location, and it’s a popular draw in the summer especially. For upmarket decor with very reasonable prices, Lasseter’s gives you an Instagrammable evening. Alternatively, just pop in for a fancy cocktail and watch the sunset.

9. Hadley’s at Number One

9. Hadley’s at Number One

Cuisine: British / Contemporary

Address: 1 Boulevard, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1NN

For a classy, vegetarian-friendly meal in the heart of Weston, Hadley’s is a good bet. It’s a compact, family run restaurant with a friendly vibe serving classy takes on British classics. You can have a full English here for breakfast, or a poached egg and avocado muffin.

The steak and blue cheese salad is a highlight, as are the daily frittatas and Hadley’s delicious desserts. Everything is beautifully presented and sourced from local producers. Popular with diners of all ages, Hadley’s is one of the more fashionable eateries in town.

10. Michaelangelo Weston

Cuisine: Italian / Pizza 

Address: 50A Knightstone Road, Weston-super-Mare BS23 2BE 

If you’re as much of a pizza fanatic as this writer, you’ll be glad to know that Weston boasts an excellent Italian restaurant serving delicious pizzas and so much more. Diners rave about the chicken and mushroom risotto, the melt-in-the-mouth scallops and the speciality tagliatelle with crispy bacon, chicken, spring onions and cherry tomatoes. 

All the classic Napoli-style pizzas are available and there are unique varieties including caprine with goat’s cheese and caramelised onions and the meat-heavy Michelangelo (beef, chicken, ham and spicy ‘nduja sausage). It’s also one of the prettiest restaurants in town and has outdoor tables for sunny days.

11. Loco Mexicano

11. Loco Mexicano

Cuisine: Mexican / Cuban

Address: 11-12 Beach Road, 15 Central Walk, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1AX

This Latin American charmer is one of the best places to eat in Weston. Loco Mexicana does both Mexican and Cuban specialities including enchiladas, fajitas, and burritos. Just as delicious are their line of spicy burgers and Vera Cruz seafood dishes.

The restaurant is dog and toddler friendly – you’re likely to get water for the former and a highchair for the latter. Loco Mexicana is cosy, fun, and flavoursome.
