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. The staff dont take a blind bit of notice, preferring instead to get the decent clientel out as... More

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....

We dined here whilst on a break to Blackpool. The food & service was up to usual Wetherspoons standard, and we decided to return on two further evenings. Unfortunately, we where unable to get a table despite having a drink and waiting at the bar. The pub does not run any sort of 'system' for the allocation of its tables... More

Unremarkable 'spoons in a former auction house, far enough from the front to avoid the worst of the seaside mayhem and used mostly by locals. Usually quiet (probably due to its location) but clean, comfortable and welcoming enough with friendly, polite staff, well presented food and cheap booze. Compared with some of the pubs and diners around here, this place... More

Found this wetherspoons by chance the last time we visited blackpool . So decided to give it a go. Food good value for the money. This wetherspoons is a little quieter as it's on one of the Back roads but still worth a visit . Would go again if in the area.
