I think that The Tramway is a good pub with a brilliant menu. It keeps the hids happy with the ice cream that you can get over and over again.

The standard is not high in here, we were there for carvery and we were disappointed as whilst the meat was tender and fresh and lovely ,everything else was frozen -ie veg,roast potatoes ,etc, the sweets were ok, but it honestly is like a cardboard meal instead of sunday lunch.

Went on 2 visits whilst on holiday, staff were very helpful on both visits. The carver also a very nice guy I can only think other people have been unlucky on their visits. It didn't seem as busy as other Crown Carveries we had visited but still we had 8 great family meals and a very fair price.

as Lesm 136 says, it depends when you go, most time for me absolutely fine, yesterday a disaster. No gammon, well only a very small piece, I refused it on the grounds that it looked 'dry', the pork joint didn't look appetising so had to settle for the turkey, better off eating straw. Vegetables were hot, gravy thin.

Have eaten here on several occasions with the same results ,it depends on the time of day as to how hot the food is, if you arrive at a time in mid afternoon the chances are that you will have lukewarm food.

Really good food, hot and good choice. However the meat portion sizes are really poor. You can see the disappointment on everyone's faces when the meat is served to their plate. Having spent time in the US it seems in the UK we get short changed on size of portions.

We decided to catch the bus to Blackpool from Preston and walk along the promenade to Cleveleys and have lunch at the Tramway. There were only six people in front of us so we didn’t have to wait long. We haven’t been since last year and noticed some extra items that I don’t remember being there before – mushy peas,... More

Carvery tasteless and doesn't even look nice. It is the nearest one to us but we won't use it anymore. Cheap but not worth it.

We went as a family on a Friday evening at 7.30, over heard the staff telling another family who were ordering and about to pay for a Carvery that they were running out of beef and turkey, we left and so did the other family!!! Not good
