6 family members made up of a sister and 2 brothers and their other halves met up for lunch one Sunday whilst visiting Blackpool for the illuminations. Surprised by how small the restaurant is - quite deceiving with a mirror at the back which makes the restaurant look bigger than it is. We took the last table and perused the... More

Great Food & Good Service - Big portions which is a negative for me but my husband likes this! Great selection of Ribs, Burgers, Salads, hearty food! You wont leave hungry here! Good value for what you get - can get really busy but worth the wait!

Food is reasonably priced and this year kids under 10 could eat free. Big set back we had to wait an hour to get our good once ordered.

We went during week and it soon got really busy, there were only 2 staff on covering the bar and waiting so we had to wait or go up bar when we wanted to order more food/drinks. I had to send my main course back as while everyone else's was hot mine was stone cold. Desert choice was only 4... More

Ate here on Saturday night as a large group, once seated we realised you have to order everything at the bar and we found the drinks especially soft drinks really expensive, nearly £3 for large coke? All our mains were of good quality, the lasagne was really good but the house special steaks were not as good portion wise as... More

A busy lunchtime, tired feet, hungry children, thirsty dad... OK, we had to wait 15 minutes for a table, but we were seated and served drinks while we waited and perused menus. Once seated we were able to order immediately and freshen our drinks. Shortly thereafter our food arrived - hot and all as ordered (rare steaks etc.) The food... More

Everything seems to go into the microwave and comes out burnt I did mention to the servers but they were not interested. We had the combo starter, soggy tomato nachos in the middle covered with loads of cheese - burnt round the edges. Son had kids lasagne (which was free luckily as he didn't eat it!) once he moved the... More

Went there Monday night. Service was extremely slow and when our food arrived, the ribs was cold and dry. I should have returned it but my wife stopped me since we were already waited so long. They say kids eat free but only few choices, kids nuggets also not cooked very well. The chef was probably tired or drunk! We... More

We visited here on our first night in Blackpool and popped in on the spur of the moment. We were definitely glad we did as the food and service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. We had ribs, chicken and swordfish and all were very good. Would definitely recommend.
