We were the only people here from 7:30 to when we left after a couple of hours. Very friendly owner who served all our order with pride. Can recommend king prawns with green pepper & black bean sauce, it was lovely.

Every year we go to Blackpool in February for the Blackpool Magic Convention and every year we go to the Red Pepper. Good food and not expensive. Never seems to be busy, Cannot understand why!
