I went to Bold for an evening meal recently and opted for their early bird menu. The lady behind the bar was brusque to say the least when asking for my table location or number. I picked a table near 23 but then moved as the seat covers there and at adjoining tables were badly stained. the food itself was... More

We go to the Bold quite often as for us it's somewhere we like to go just to chill out. We normally go on a Saturday but it was fully booked so went yesterday. We know most of the staff so it's more like a home from home. We did have a bit of an issue checking in which was... More

I planned the bold hotel as a last minute weekend away for my partner and I for his birthday. He wanted to go blackpool but after going soooo many times i wanted somewhere different as we wern't planning on going on rides anyway, so decided on southport. The bold looked like the best hotel to book without paying outrageous prices.... More

Many thanks for your recent review of the Bold. Am unsure of the confusion surrounding your room and information provided - the hotel is under an ongoing refurbishment with full downstairs refurbishment now completed and the majority of bedrooms have been refurbished to a high standard. I hope to welcome you back to the Bold in the future. More

We chose the two courses for £8.00 you take your table number to the bar, order, drinks are served to you there and then. My soup was spicy Moroccan, it... More

We popped in just for an early evening drink in the bar and were presented with a good selection of draft beers at a reasonable price. The bar was busy and had a good atmosphere. Clean and tidy with good service
