Description: Miami meets Madison Avenue is how we'd describe this bold boutique hotel located on Harrowside West in Blackpool. The hip hotel, run by award-winning hoteliers Mark and Claire Smith, has a chilled, beachy vibe coupled with cutting edge design making it a hot spot with Blackpool's extravagant epicures and food-loving fashionistas. With views of the ocean and the South Beach Promenade, plush red chairs, dark grey wallpaper, chandeliers and fresh flowers the hotel's restaurant is a decadent dining destination whether you're dropping in for a cappuccino, a glass of champagne or a three-course meal. We love the luxe ambience at Number One South Beach, and the kitchen's modern British menu is to die for.

We were given a dinner voucher by Hollowells (funeral services) and having tried the other two venues on the voucher (and not too overly impressed) we decided to try here! Never heard of it until now!

It was a comfortable lounge, a very friendly helpful bar steward and absolutely delicious food! The steak and mushroom pie was recommended to us and wow it was excellent! Home-made chips and home made chicken liver pate - the best ever!

The atmosphere was relaxing and the decor very contemporary. The chef came out and chatted with various diners and was most amiable.

It was overall a great dining experience and we would definitely return and also recommend!

“As Perfect As Going to Your Best Friends house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

If you enjoy delicious food in a friendly, relaxed and wonderful restaurant then we recommend you try the Number One South Beach.

Been every year for the past 3 years, and all I can say is the food is delicious, the atmosphere perfect and it feels as wonderful as going to your best friends house for an amazing meal and night out - just spot on.

It just feels so right, everything is spot on; the welcome, the menu, the price, the portion sizes, the service, the timings of courses and the relaxed friendly environment. It all makes for a perfect meal out.

Mark the owner and fabulous cook talked to us before we ordered and made sure he understood exactly what we liked and wanted, he even added some wonderful extras to the main course.

We will be going back very soon.

“Number one lived up to it's name.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

We had our retired friends Xmas Dinner here for the second year running. As last year, the food was excellent and the menu had choices that satisfied everyone. Mark's cooking is the best in the area and we will certainly return in the future. Thankyou.

“In a class of its own.”

Great food and excellent service. Not your regular restaurant experience but something a little special. Great for that special occasion or impressive business meeting.
