Eating out is something that has become a very social part of our culture.
It is a chance to catch up with friends, try different cuisines and spend time with the family.
Local fresh produce on your plate
And if you like to eat food sourced locally, Southport restaurants pride themselves on providing the freshest ingredients, with 70% of the food they serve being produced freshly using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible and purchased from local food markets and shopping areas.
Quality in dining is of most importance, not only in the food and kitchen but also in the service.
Nearly all Southport restaurants are part of the Southport Restaurateurs Association and it is their promise that they offer their customers the freshest food, in comfortable surroundings, with exceptional service.
If you're looking for value for money the Restaurateurs Association are proud to offer value for money as well as great quality.
They regularly have lunchtime, teatime and themed menus and run seasonal promotions throughout the year on our special offers section.
Bags of talent
With so many restaurants in the town, Southport has bags of talented chefs, and you can usually find them showcasing their skills at the Southport Food and Drink Festival.
Famous double Michelin-starred Chef Marcus Wareing, now judge on 'MasterChef: The Professionals', is also from Southport.
Who knows what culinary talent will come out of Southport in the future!
