I visited the red lion on Wednesday with 2 of my friends. We was being looked after by a waitress called seema. The service and food was outstanding, seema is a very polite young lady and always seems to be smiling which is nice to see. She's a fabulous waitress and is a credit to the red lion. I had... More

What a gem! Refurb is excellent and the food and service excels. We came for family lunch and despite the weather the kids kicked off by playing on the new outside playground. Rather them than me! I had the lamb and it was amazing. I am also reliably informed that my wife's Caramel Apple Betty was worth travelling the 50... More

2 handpulls, but no real ale on. At least they had some decent beer in bottle. Ate in the bar area. Advised of a 45 minute wait for food at 18:20 on a Sunday evening as the restaurant part was busy. Food took 40 minutes to arrive. Can't really complain about the food... Hard to go wrong with paprika chicken... More

As a local from Blackpool I have been here numerous of times. Every time I have been to eat here the service and the food have never disappointed. My mum and dad come here at least 4x a year as they both enjoy the food and the service as much as I do. Staff are friendly and approachable even when... More

I've just got home after being taken for a surprise Sunday lunch to cheer me up after having an operation recently. Where do I start...we were given an over enthusiastic welcome by a young lady, so over enthusiastic that I thought she knew me and I hadn't recognised her, but no I didn't know her. Just extremely over the top.... More

Our first visit after the refurbishment. Our reservation was put back 30 minutes because they were fully booked but when we got there the place was empty! The staff are attentive but totally harassed. The menu appears to be the same as before. My starter (prawns in salt and pepper) was extremely dry, the other starters acceptable. The steak ordered...
