Accrington has a great selection of eateries, and we have compiled the top ten, according to customer review website TripAdvisor.
The Divine Coffee Shop, on Warner Street, stands proudly at number one.
The ‘Mediterranean Twist’ cuisine proves a firm favourite with residents with 62 out of 68 reviews rating it five stars.
Co-owner, Liron Asulin, 41 said: “It’s thanks to our customers who keep coming back who like our fresh cooked food.
We do a lot of Tapas evenings that are £20 for 13 dishes.”
Second is Healy’s @ Lily Mae’s. Open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings it offers a ‘Modern English Brasserie Experience’.
102 out of 128 reviewers give it five stars and the menu offers several deals including an early bird option of three courses and a medium glass of wine for £20.
Owner and head chef Brian Healy, 45 said: “I’d rather be number one! But I’m more than happy being second.
“It tells me that people are happy with what I’m trying to do.”
The ‘pub grub’ available at The Park Inn, Manchester Road places third in the hearts and stomachs of Accrington.
Steak for two and bottle of wine will cost you just £20 and according to Nuttalls028 it is ‘brilliant’.
Head Chef Amy Murphy, 26 said: “We are very happy and we appreciate that our customers appreciate our food and quality.”
Two other pubs also made the top ten, the Griffins Head Inn on Burnley Road came fifth and The Commercial Hotel, Church Street made it at seventh.
Both promise pub grub at reasonable prices in pleasant surroundings.
Accrington has a taste for spice with two Indian Restaurants on the list.
The Mitali Tandoori, Warner Street and The Spice Room, Blackburn Road came eighth and ninth respectively.
Regulars praised the attentive staff of the Mitali and the varied menu of The Spice Room.
Imposta Coffee’s modest menu won praise at number four with its simple sandwich collection and ‘top notch’ coffee making it a regular haunt for many.
The easy life is also important to Accrington residents: the Cinnamon Spice Indian takeaway on Whalley Road and the Kwong Ming Chinese takeaway of Blackburn Road made appearances at sixth and tenth respectively.
The ‘restaurant quality’ food of Cinnamon Spice means locals look no further for their curry-fix, while the great combinations of ‘top notch’ fare at Kwong Ming ensure those with a hankering for hoy sin won’t have long to wait.
