Soaking up cuisine on the seafront


Ever wanted to embrace the cool chic and welcoming atmosphere of an American Speakeasy? Well now you can, Skegness is now home to Meanie BoBini’s, a bar, grill and friary that has the atmosphere and look that takes you from seafront Lincolnshire to New Orleans cool as soon as you walk through the door.

Named after a gangster, the bar exudes cool, with private booths, a lit up dance floor, gorgeous lighting and a welcoming atmosphere it’s both a relaxed place to eat and while away the day and a place to push the boat at in at night.

We took some recommendations on the food and weren’t left disappointed. We plumped for a starter of Mississippi chicken strips which was a delight. Smokey, sweet and thick BBQ sauce made the golden strips sing and the salad was a great accompaniment. We’d endorse this as being a fantastic way to start a meal.

For our main course, an old Skegness staple was suggested in the form of classic fish and chips. Served with a hearty slice of lemon, some tangy tartare sauce and mushy peas (of course!) we dug in to find a fantastic take on the dish so known throughout the county as a speciality. The portion size was really filling, but those with a larger appetite can opt for a jumbo portion for just a small charge.

The batter was beautiful, crispy and softer in the middle, it contrasted with the fresh, full taste of fish within. So often with fish and chips, lifeless, soggy chips are the name of the game. Not so at Meanie Bobinis, these were cooked to perfection, with just enough crispiness and bite on the outside, with a soft, fluffy interior. We cleared our plates, simply wonderful.

There’s a whole host of desserts made fresh every day on offer too, which change each day and we’d recommend taking your time to select something special as it all looked so good!

Open from 11am to 11pm every day, we can’t think of a more inviting place on the seafront! Meanie BoBini’s is on Grand Parade, Skegness PE23 2UG.
