About the restaurant
你好, welcome to the Mandarin!

Established in 1961, this traditional and authentic Cantonese restaurant in Blackpool town centre has been extending a warm oriental welcome to customers for 55 years!

Choose from a mouth-watering selection of delicious dishes including Mrs Wan’s dumplings, made from her own recipe, Szechuan chilli beef, Nasi Goreng and oriental fruit salad with lychee. We are very proud that every dish and every sauce is made in house, because we care about our food.


The belief that every meal shared should be special is why this restaurant takes time to carefully select and prepare the freshest Chinese dishes, adding just three extra ingredients - quality, experience and time.

Our core belief is that we are a local restaurant, open year round for local residents and visitors to the resort alike. We"ve worked for many years with our local suppliers to continue to bring you the best experience of Chinese food in Blackpool.

About the restaurant
The Hop Vine formerly the ‘Royal Hotel’ was built in 1874 and was the main stopping off point for goods being transported to and from the old Turnpike road the A59. The Royal as it was known has served the community and travellers alike. To the rear of the building in our historic Cobbled Garden you will find our own brewery housed in the stables which were used for the horses and stage coaches as they passed through the village. From Ales to YPA’s, to Blonde beers we are a small producer using primary English hops brewing exclusively in house for The Hop Vine and our sister pub the Legh Arms.

Our countryside sister the Legh Arms is our latest addition to the family and is situated in the pretty hamlet of Mere Brow. Here we serve our trademark delicious home produced quality food and excellent home brewed ales. Your hosts Mike & Julie and their superb team bring a wealth of experience in the trade and have sourced the best in the local area to tempt you.

Pan-Asian
Blackpool
About the restaurant
Our pan-Asian menu gathers influences of cooking styles from all around Asia; including Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, China, Indonesia and Vietnam. The design of the restaurant is influenced by some of our favourite places to eat and drink, it takes its cues from the street food ‘Hawker’ markets of Penang mixed with the reclaimed building feel of Budapest’s ruin bars. These places both have a magical feel, something that we’ve tried to recreate for the people of Blackpool to enjoy. Penang, Malaysia is an eclectic melting pot of various food styles, with influences from Indonesia, Thailand, India and China, dishes such as soup ramen and stone-baked donburi are two great examples of the depth in flavour, which can be created when different styles come together.

One of our go to places in Blackpool, the other being Michael Wans, owned and ran by the same team. This place never disappoints, the food is amazing and the team are so welcoming, professional and friendly. There’s a new menu at the moment with additions of fresh sushi and sashimi, which were fantastic. Highly recommended to those that want authentic Asian foods with a twist in a vibrant, super cool setting.

Clitheroe
About the restaurant
Welcome to Freemasons at Wiswell, where fabulous food is served in an elegant and relaxed rural setting. The inn is located in the 'chocolate box' village of Wiswell, near Clitheroe, in the picturesque Ribble Valley. Since our transformation and reopening in the summer of 2009, we have created a loyal clientele and a genuine home-from-home atmosphere. Flag stone floors, walls in muted heritage colours, antique rugs and furniture, period paintings and prints all unite to create a stylish and comfortable setting. Our bar has an excellent selection of traditional cask conditioned ales from award-winning independent breweries and is complemented by a superb cellar with over 250 wines from around the world. While the surroundings and welcome are inviting, the main reason to visit is, of course, our food. Chef/patron Steven Smith has created a unique and diverse menu that perfectly matches the style and atmosphere, and we will be delighted to welcome you for a true gastronomic experience.

Just had the pleasure of dining here this evening and what a find! Loved every morsel of our meal, and the pavlova dessert was divine! Staff were all lovely, the servos wasn’t rushed, over 2 hours for 3 courses which I like especially when you’re paying a lot of money! Worth every penny! They even did a special little birthday treat for the other half which was nice!

I ate here with a friend on Sunday. We were wanting a Sunday roast with all the trimmings. That is exactly what we got. We opted for the smaller portion and that was pretty big. The beef was cooked perfectly, the Yorkshire pudding light and crispy and the vegetables just right. Even the beans were al dente. It was swimming in the most delicious gravy. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
