Matt and Cat say...
"The Seaview Hotel is one of our favourites for a quality meal - and good value. Also check out Dan's Kitchen and The Old Fort.
Seaview and St Helens have a good choice of places to eat. Top of our list has to be the Seaview Hotel. Deservedly winning the Michelin Bib Gourmand, this place always excels. If you like vintage chic and you get the chance to try the idiosyncratic Northbank Hotel, we'd urge you to give it a go - for that genuine vintage experience it can't be beaten. Down on the seafront at Seaview is the Old Fort, a great place to sit out on a warm day and have a real seaside supper. We'd also recommend nearby St Helens, which has Dan's Kitchen, a restaurant which is always popular with chefs - and of course with us - serving an enjoyable fusion of smart hotel food and gastrogrub. Across the green we also like Ganders, a small and intimate venue that combines enjoyable locally-sourced food with really good service."
