Always come here when we visit on holiday, great prices, good food and family atmosphere.... Beer garden is an absolute sun trap. Not too far from the local Travelodge or Premier Inn either. Will save you ££££££'s compared to the sea front prices too. Can get packed during the main holiday times, but, that's to be expected. Enjoy.

Went in on Fri 10th April for fish and chips we were pleasantly surprised with the portion size,the only issue I had was 85p for 2 thin slices of bread and 2 unspreadable hard butter portions. Apart from that we were happy with all other aspects.

Visiting Blackpool for the weekend and I wanted something nice to eat instead of the usual fish & chips or kebab so we pooped into the Auctioneer. Ordered a steak with jacket potato and salad and I have to say the steak was one of the best I've had anywhere. It was cooked to perfection, the jacket potato was light... More
