Going out for a nice meal can be a risky business if you don’t know the area and haven’t been to the restaurant before. That’s why it always pays to check sites such as Tripadvisor and of course, ask the locals!
We absolutely love the diverse range of fantastic cafes and restaurants in Bognor Regis that there are to choose from, offering something for every single taste and diet.
If you’re on holiday in Bognor Regis and are looking for some great places to eat near Butlins, here are six of our favourite restaurants that are only a short walk away…
Our Favourite Tapas – Sen, Sudley Road, Bognor Regis
Tucked away down one of the residential streets in Bognor Regis, just off the High Street, is this little Mediterranean gem. Sen is a hugely popular restaurant all year round with many local fans of tapas making a regular visit here for a romantic meal, or larger social occasion.
In the restaurant’s own words – whatever dish you are looking for, be it vegetarian, poultry or succulent steak, tapas like patatas alioli or other authentic dishes, you will not be disappointed.
Our Favourite Indian – Cardamom Bay, Queensway, Bognor Regis
Cardamom Bay boasts the best curry in Bognor Regis and it absolutely isn’t kidding. Whether you want a takeaway or to eat in, this Bognor Regis Indian restaurant takes pride in offering something truly first class when it comes to the tastes, flavours and presentation, not only of the food, but the restaurant itself. A lovely evening meal awaits fans of Indian food who dine here.
Our Favourite Oriental Food – Bangkok Lounge, High Street, Bognor Regis
Bangkok Lounge offers a wide range of exceptional Thai food which has its diners absolutely raving about it. In addition to an evening meal, the restaurant puts on a fabulous Sunday banquet which makes a great alternative to the traditional English Sunday Roast. And it’s good value for money too.
As one holiday maker commented on Tripadvisor – “… staying in Bognor for a ‘Butlins weekend’ and called into this restaurant by chance. And we are glad we did! The staff were helpful and attentive, and the food was great”.
Our Favourite Italian – Mamma Mia – Nyewood Lane, Bognor Regis
Now, to get here would be a fairly long way if you’re based at Butlins, but it’s well worth the stroll along the seafront. If not, it’s just a short taxi drive away.
Finding a good Italian restaurant is so satisfying, as not only can you expect amazing food, but you’re also guaranteed a great atmosphere. Mamma Mia offers a delicious range of antipasti, pizza, pasta and desserts to suit all tastes and diets.
Our Favourite Cafe by the Sea – The Lobster Pot, Felpham
There’s a reason why people are often queuing out of the door to dine at the Lobster Pot and that’s because it serves up some of the yummiest food in the area. And you get some wonderful views of the sea while you sit and enjoy it.
Even if you aren’t going for brunch or dinner, the many flavours of home-made ice cream served up in generous scoops make it well worth a visit on its own. The Lobster Pot is only a short stroll from Butlins – simply turn left at the sea front and follow it a few steps towards Felpham.
Our favourite French Bistro – Chez Moi, Aldwick Road, Bognor Regis
This restaurant has to be one of Bognor Regis’ best kept secrets. A small and perfectly formed family restaurant, a tiny way off the beaten track, but once you get here, a delightful French dining experience awaits you.
The seafood is to die for – as you would expect – and the French cuisine in general, evokes some wonderful Parisian memories. What a find this place is – you will not be disappointed!
