My wife and I used this restaurant as we were staying in the premier inn next to it.However, we were left feeling that we would have been lucky to find a more comfortable restaurant.The food was also first class,generous portions well prepared.The quality of customer service was also first class. Will definetly revisit next time we are in blackpool.

After our 4th visit in the past I can honestly say I've not had one bad experience,the food and service has been excellent. Each time we have been we have been well looked after by the young manager Wayne.

Never had a bad meal here and the staff are really pleasant and very helpful. Parents and Uncle in their 80/90s always pick here because they know thy are going to enjoy it. One suggestion may be to try to have a quiet area where very young children don't normally go - our relatives are a bit deaf and when... More

Had lunch one day and evening meal here on a couple of nights, whilst staying at the adjoining Premier Inn I and was very impressed. The food was lovely and the staff were also excellent. The pub itself is also very comfortable and relaxing. Will definitely visit again.

We came for a meal on Sunday 8th June. We were served by Mavis and Emily who where delightful ladies. We enjoyed a sharer combo starter and rump steak for main course. Both the food and service was fantastic and we are looking forward to a return visit.

Dined here just before the rush (before 6PM). Restaurant was quiet as expected at that time, did wait a few minutes to be seated, but a Chef approached us and took us to a table, and explained staff were changing over shifts. Great choice of menu from grilled items to pasta/salads. I choose to order a Sirloin steak, good quality,... More

Went for a meal with two friends on Saturday 17th May. The food was excellent, three of us had the chunky chips, one had plain chips. tried a sample of both and found the chunky chips were much nicer. If you are planning to go there I suggest you have the chunky chips. I usually have steak, but this time... More

Attached to an excellent Premier Lodge, it lets the concept down. The food, which is what you go for, particularly breakfast was very poor. The hash browns bounced. The mushrooms were so over cooked they were going to purée. The bacon was over cooked and tough as old boots, poached eggs were a substitute for golf balls. When asked if... More
