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... read more

The Auctioneer is a lovely pub serving tasty food at good value for money prices. We stay in Blackpool several times a year and we always have a meal here. The staff are friendly and efficient and the pub is always clean and has a good atmosphere.

It's Whetherspoons, so no surprises. Food is good catering quality, plentiful, hot, freshly cooked and good value. Went early evening on day of big storms but was busy. Beer was well kept, food presented quickly by staff who asked me three times if I was happy. If there were Michelin stars for beer then Whetherspoons would be a contender -... More

We had an afternoon meal and drink in this pub while visiting Blackpool for the World Matchplay darts. Staff were friendly enough, service fine, food was typical wetherspoons grub and overall good value. Would call in again on any future Blackpool trips.

Popped in for a nice afternoon drink, pub had nice atmosphere - wasn't too busy. Prices very good and staff friendly. Not far from promenade, under a 10 minute walk along Lytham Road.

The good thing about this pub is the cheap drinks,the food and surroundings. The bad thing about this pub esp in the evenings is the undesirable element it attracts, loud drunken obnoxious people, some coming in from the rowdy pub next door.

Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the way the staff worked on this occasion we always strive to keep a good atmosphere in the pub and keep our customers happy but it sounds on this occasion you felt we failed. sometimes in season it can get a bit noisy but we will always intervene if it gets too rowedy....
