On arrival the chef was sprawled all over the till; when asked what the soup of the day was he responded "minestrone ish". There was no feta cheese on the feta salad. When raise to the waiter, "oh I just thought it was the other table he forgot it" and to finish was apple pie when the pasty wasn't cooked!... More

We booked to see Mama Mia on the show and dine package as it was the same price as just the tickets alone, so essentially a free meal. I didn't know what to expect as there are some very bad reviews on here but I was very very surprised. The food was lovely, the staff friendly and efficient, and the... More

Believe this place has just reopened after a refurb. Interior is extremely clean and well decorated. Situated in Winter Gardens complex. We paid £15 for 3 courses and it was brilliant VFM. If you get as a show and dine deal, for some bizarre reason you get the package cheaper than buying tickets on their own. Staff were very professional/attentive.... More

Dined here whilst at the dance championships and was very disappointed. The menu reads well but in reality the food is poor in quality and lacks taste. No atmosphere at all. Such a pity as there is a need for a good restaurant in this wonderful venue.

We booked before a night at the Theatre to see the Overtones and wanted somewhere ideal - reviews on here were good and I checked the menu and I thought it would be ok. On arrival, the menu was very limited and there was nothing I could eat as a vegetarian who is Gluten free. I asked if there was... More

Paid for the dine & view, NEVER AGAIN! Shocking food! Stale tough bread for the pâté. The child food fish cake that tasted of nothing had salad served on top with pâté in it, clearly recycled salad. Complained to the waiter who had a word with the "chef" who then gave me the daggers!! My steak pudding was threatened with... More

We visited the Grill on 15th October for the Winter Gardens' Dinner and Show deal. This was an amazing value deal with little difference between what we paid and the price of a ticket with no meal. We didn't know what to expect so arrived around 5.30pm for a show start of 7.30pm. We found the grill almost empty but... More

This is a great looking venue in a oasis in the town which we were grateful for. Service though was the main problem, we had a drinks waiter who was very good but a mixed bag with the waiting on staff, there seemed to be a problem in the kitchen with some obvious raised tones which preceded a long delay...

We took my 93 year old Grandma for Sunday lunch, as she loves 'Old Blackpool', so we purely chose the restaurant on the basis that it is in beautiful historical surroundings - and after checking the reviews on here! We were very impressed. The restaurant decor is lovely. The seating is comfortable and the dining area very spacious. No overcrowding... More
